Christian Yount, Jock Sanders agree to terms with Buccaneers

NEPatriotsDraft.com has two more future Buccaneers listed: longsnapper Christian Youngt out of UCLA and WR Jock Sanders out of West Virginia. 

With Andrew Economos recovering from an Achilles injury, the Bucs may need a new longsnapper, and Youngt should at least give Economos some competition in camp. 

Jock Sanders is more intriguing. He's a very small wide receiver at 5'6", 181 lbs, but he's fast and shifty. He could make the roster as a general offensive weapon similar to but less skilled than Dexter McCluster for the Chiefs. He can run the ball and act as a slot receiver. He's still raw and needs to work on technique, but can become a versatile weapon for the offense.

He has had a DUI arrest in 2009 and a battery charge after a fight outside a nightclub in 2008. He has supposedly matured, and the Bucs brought him in on a pre-draft visit ostensibly to judge that. Sanders may be the most intriguing player the Bucs signed so far, as he has a small chance to turn into a type of offensive weapon the Bucs do not yet have. 

In addition, the Bucs announced the official signings of WR Raymond Webber and LB Derrell Smith.
