50 Players to Attend Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rookie Minicamp


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will 50 have players in attendance at their rookie minicamp, which runs from Friday until Sunday.

All six of the Bucs’ 2014 draft picks will be there, as will the 13 undrafted free agents they inked upon the conclusion of the draft. There will be 23 players on a tryout, while four players from the Bucs 2013 roster will be in attendance (Marc Anthony, Jace Daniels, Jason Foster, and Everett Dawkins) while four free agent signings will be there too (Jacob Schum, Patrick Murray, Andrew DePaola, and Damaso Munoz).

Of note, there are three punters on the list, a sign that perhaps the Bucs may be thinking of parting ways with Michael Koenen and his over-paid contract. The Bucs were ranked 24th in punting last season.

Kirby Van Der Kamp of Iowa State was ranked as the best punter in the draft by CBS and even projected him to be a fifth round pick so he could be in contention to be the Bucs future punter if they severe ties with Koenen.

The USF Bulls share Raymond James Stadium with the Bucs and there will be five former Bulls trying to make an impression: Brandon Salinas (CB), Jacquez Jenkins (DB), Mark Joyce (DB), Ryne Giddins (DE) and Julius Forte (DE).

There are also a high number of defensive backs and linebackers on the list, suggesting that perhaps the Bucs are still looking for depth at those two positions.

The Bucs have had recent success at finding players in rookie minicamp who have gone on to have important roles with the team. Leonard Johnson was discovered in 2012 and Tim Wright was found in 2013.
