Rookie minicamp has concluded, and four players who received camp tryouts from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have earned contracts.
The list of undrafted free agents signed by the Buccaneers continues to grow, as they announced Monday that four additional players were signed after camp tryouts concluded last week. Wisconsin safety D’Cota Dixon, edge rusher from Illinois State David Kenney, another Illinois State product wide receiver Spencer Schnell, and North Texas offensive tackle Riley Mayfield all earned contracts from the Buccaneers.
In order to make room for these players, the Buccaneers had to make four cuts to their roster. Veteran running back Kerwynn Williams, who was signed last week, offensive tackle Israel Helms, wide receiver Malik Taylor, and tight end Isaiah Searight, who was hurt all rookie camp, were let go in order to create room on the roster.
Just four years ago, now Tennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries was a camp invite who played his way into a contract as an undrafted free agent for the Buccaneers. This offseason he signed a healthy four-year deal worth $9 million annually.
Each of these four players now get the same opportunity Humphries got. Get to know the four newest members of the Buccaneers here as they continue to claw their way out and separate themselves among other undrafted free agents.
