Bucs Sign Undrafted Free Agents on Monday

8

Some notable players signed free agent deals today, including Quan Cosby, Greg Carr, Taurus Johnson, and Graham Harrell. Unfortunately, none of them signed with the Bucs. The Bucs did sign CB DeAngelo Willingham out of Tennessee, who brings good size to the table for a corner at 5'11, 215 lbs. The Bucs also signed a couple of local guys to tryout contracts - former Tampa Bay Tech standout/Notre Dame LB Maurice Crum and former USF DE Jarriett Buie. The Bucs worked out Crum a few weeks ago and appear genuinely interested in him. If he claims a roster spot, he could add some competition to the open tryout for the outside linebacker spots. Buie is a speedster who is a little small for a full-time DE, but could be effective as a situational pass rusher. He ran a 4.73 40 time at the combine. DISCLAIMER: Someone chime in if they know more, but I believe a tryout contract is basically an agreement for a team to have the exclusive right to bring that player into training camp to tryout for the team.
