The Bucs needed a replacement kicker after Conor Barth suffered a season-ending Achilles injury while participating in a charity basketball game.
Tynes spent the last six seasons with the Giants. In 2012, he connected on 33-of-39 field-goal attempts, with a perfect mark under than 30 yards and a 21-25 mark between 30-49 yards.
The Giants opted to let Tynes walk in free agency, and instead inked Josh Brown to a one-year deal. Last season with the Cincinnati Bengals, Brown converted 91.7 percent of his field-goal attempts -- a 11-for-12 mark -- after playing in just four games.
