2012 Undrafted Free Agent Signings: Bucs add Tackles Trevor Olson and Rocky Weaver

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added two more undrafted free agents to their rookie class, signing two more offensive tackles. Trevor Olson and considerably better-named Rocky Weaver were both signed today. Olson played college football at Northern Illinois, while Rocky Weaver comes out of Central Michigan. With these two players, the Bucs have signed a total of 16 undrafted free agents to go along with their seven draft picks.

After drafting no offensive linemen it should be no surprise that the Buccaneers are looking to upgrade their offensive line. Of the 16 undrafted free agents they have signed, 6 are offensive linemen. The Bucs have a high-quality starting offensive line with the likes of Donald Penn, Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph. They do have an issue at right tackle, though, as starter Jeremy Trueblood is incapable of stopping any pass rusher with a little speed. The Bucs' depth is less than ideal, however, as backup T Demar Dotson is still a developmental prospect, and backup G/C Ted Larsen has the ability but not the consistency to start.

The Bucs will bring all of these players to their rookie minicamp this weekend, where a number of other undrafted rookies will compete in tryouts for the few remaining spots on the roster.
