Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bucs sign two tryout players to 90-man roster
Announced on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ website by Senior Writer and Editor, Scott Smith, the team has retained two tryout players coming out of their 2018 rookie minicamp.
Both Mark Myers and Ruben Holcomb will be joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they open camp later this year and will look to make the most of their opportunity and land a spot within an NFL franchise.
Myers, a cornerback out of Southeastern figures to surely get a solid opportunity to show his skills when all of the players converge on One Buc in a few months.
Filling a position of need certainly helps a player’s chances of making it further into the process.
With so much attention paid to the secondary group however, Myers will certainly have a crowded group of fellow rookies to contend with.
Holcomb is a guard from Indianapolis and like Myers, is coming in at a position of need.

While many certainly viewed the tackle position as one of greater need, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers themselves did a lot this off-season to improve their interior line.
Both young men will be looking to accomplish something rare, but not unheard of. As Smith pointed out in an earlier article published on Buccaneers.com, there have been some notable players to come out of tryout groups.
Most notably, and most recently is wide receiver Adam Humphries along with offensive lineman Demar Dotson.
Never underestimate what a determined person can do with solid work ethic and opportunities to prove themselves.
They may not be favorites to make the team, but if they’ve already earned the respect of the decision makers then they certainly deserve our attention.
