Bucs sign Derek Hagan, release Jheranie Boyd

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Another day, another roster move.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived rookie wide receiver Jheranie Boyd and signed veteran Derek Hagan, as initially reported by Pewter Report. Boyd signed with the Bucs as an undrafted free agent after a tryout at the team's rookie minicamp, but has not impressed the coaches enough to hang around.

Hagan is a veteran of five different NFL teams, having entered the league as a third-round draft pick in 2006. He has managed 1,480 yards on 129 catches in his seven years in the league, but he was likely signed by the Bucs because of his connection with offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan. Hagan spent three years playing under Sullivan with the New York Giants, though his production was limited to 324 yards during that time.

Hagan will compete for a roster spot and his extensive special teams experience as a gunner could see him winning that competition. Fifth and sixth receivers have to be productive on special teams to be active on game day, and Hagan could be valuable as a gunner.
