Buccaneers sign eight players to futures contracts

Jamie Squire

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed eight players to future/reserve contracts, per the Tampa Tribune. Those players are quarterback Adam Weber (Minnesota), defensive back Sean Baker (Ball State, tight end Drake Dunsmore (Northwestern), linebacker Joe Holland (Purdue), defensive end Ernest Owusu (California), tackle Mike Remmers (Oregon State), defensive back James Rogers (Michigan) and defensive back Nick Saenz (Houston).

All of these players spent part or all of last season on the Tampa Bay practice squad. Typically, teams sign players to future/reserve contracts to keep them around in training camp and during the offseason, without committing to them in any real way. One slightly interesting name in this regard is wide receiver Jabin Sambrano, the only player on the practice squad who was not signed to a future/reserve deal.

The player most likely to make an impact in the future is tight end Drake Dunsmore, who was drafted by the Bucs in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL draft. He's mostly a receiving tight end who can function as an H-back and movable player in this offense.
