The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added to their haul of rookies by signing a handful of undrafted free agents. Some have a chance to make the team.
After the 2019 NFL Draft where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers added eight players to their roster, they went out and signed a numerous amount of undrafted free agents. Undrafted free agents have a hard time making rosters and are often overlooked throughout the pre-draft process, but general managers keep close tabs on them in case they have a chance to add them after the draft.
Buccaneers’ general manager Jason Licht added players in positions of needs which were not addressed in the draft, such as at running back. However, the Buccaneers have also been struck with the injury bug as of late as well, so some of these undrafted free agents have not only the potential to make the roster, but see playing time in 2019.
Kurt Warner, Antonio Gates, Tony Romo, Priest Holmes, and Jeff Saturday are all notable players who went on to have hall of fame careers after going undrafted. While none of these players may reach this height, the Buccaneers hope to have added at least one solid contributor to their roster via post-draft free agency.
While the Buccaneers added plenty of undrafted free agents, most of them will have a hard time claiming a spot on the roster in Tampa Bay. Here are three undrafted free agents who have the best shot at making the Buccaneers’ opening day roster and landing on the final 53 man roster.
