Buccaneers waive Chris Denton, sign WR Terriun Crump

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

The Buccaneers make some changes to their receiving corps.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived wide receiver Chris Denton and replaced him with Western Illinois wide receiver Terriun Crump. Denton was an outstanding punt returner at the University of Mount Union but apparently failed to impress the Buccaneers in OTAs.

New addition Terriun Crump is a second-year receiver who went undrafted last year, signed with the Chicago Bears but was released a few days prior to the start of the season during final roster cuts. He spent the past year on the Edmonton Eskimos' practice roster, and was one of the tryouts during Bucs' rookie minicamp. Crump has outstanding size at 6'3", 220 lbs. but isn't overly fast, running a 4.64 40-yard dash at this pro day. He managed 135 receptions for 2,067 yards and 11 touchdowns in his three-year career at Western Illinois.

Crump will presumably compete for a roster spot with Steve Smith, David Douglas, Chris Owusu, Jheranie Boyd, Jerry Johnson, Eric Page and Tim Wright. The Bucs can still add one more player before hitting the roster limit.
