The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed five players after their rookie minicamp. The Buccaneers signed undrafted rookies wide receiver Chris Denton out of Mount Union, offensive tackle Jace Daniels out of Northern Michigan, wide receiver Jheranie Boyd out of North Carolina and linebacker Ka'lial Glaud out of Rutgers -- only their second signing of a Rutgers player this offseason.
In addition, the Bucs signed fourth-year player Andre Neblett, a defensive tackle out of Temple University who spent the past three seasons with the Carolina Panthers racking up three sacks. He faced a four-game suspension last season for performance enhancing drugs, and is most likely to fit as a nose tackle with the Buccaneers. Chris Denton is most likely to make an impact among the undrafted rookies, as he returned an NCAA record five punts for touchdowns during his final season at Mount Union. The Bucs currently do not have an established returner.
To create room for those players, the Buccaneers had to release five players as well. The biggest name among those released was former South Florida defensive end George Selvie, who apparently failed to impress the Bucs enough to stick around. The Buccaneers also released WR D.J. Monroe, RB Akeem Shavers, G Roger Allen and DT Richard Clebert.
