The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a number of moves Tuesday, including adding three new players to their roster; get to know them here.
After a dormant first day of the official tampering period of NFL free agency, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to life on day-two, re-signing the likes of quarterback Ryan Griffin, linebacker Kevin Minter, and kicker Cairo Santos. In addition to keeping familiar faces in town, general manager Jason Licht and his team brought in three players who could pay off huge dividends for the Bucs in 2019.
After the departure of wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries, as well as linebacker Kwon Alexander, many fans were left to wonder what was going on in Tampa Bay. However, with a limited budget, the front office has been putting in a lot of work to infuse a good deal of talent onto the Buccaneer roster.
The team started the day by signing a versatile defender who can play the new hot commodity of the hybrid linebacker and safety role for Todd Bowles’ defensive scheme. The team then performed an unheard of punter swap, adding a 24-year-old special teamer to their roster. Then late at night, the Buccaneers swooped in to pounce on a receiver caught in the storm of the Odell Beckham Jr. trade.
