Visanthe Schiancoe works out for Buccaneers

Stew Milne-US PRESSWIRE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers clearly want to add some veteran competition to their training camp, with Visanthe Shiancoe and Peyton Hillis coming in for workouts today.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to work out some veteran players right before training camp. Visanthe Shiancoe is the latest player to come in, according to Jason LaCanfora. The veteran tight end could provide a valuable veteran presence at a very weak position for the Bucs, but he hasn't exactly been productive recently, playing just four games for the New England Patriots last year with no catches.

Still, the veteran has had four seasons of over 400 yards, which is four more than any other Buccaneer on the roster right now. At 33 years, though, he is clearly nearing the end of his career and it remains to be seen whether he can contribute in any way. Luke Stocker and Tom Crabtree are the Bucs' current top tight ends, so they could use an infusion of talent.

Shiancoe's workout coincides with Peyton Hillis coming to Tampa for a workout. The Bucs clearly want to add a little veteran competition in training camp, which starts on Wednesday with the dreaded conditioning test.
