Evan Dietrich-Smith legally changes his name to Evan Smith

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Here's something you don't see every day: one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' players has changed his name. Evan Dietrich-Smith has dropped the "Dietrich" from his name, legally changing his name to Evan Smith, per Scott Smith. That change was noticed earlier in the day by a bunch of people who look at the team's official roster, including our very own Gur Samuel.

Which means the Buccaneers now have an Evan, Lovie, Donovan and Jacquies Smith. Hurray for more ambiguity and confusion!

The Bucs also announced all of the jersey numbers of their rookie free agent, most of whom won't be on the roster in just a few weeks. And a lot of those numbers will be changed for those who do manage to make the final team roster. Still, here they are:

LB Quinton Alston: #59
RB Dominique Brown: #36
DT Quayshawne Buckley: #77
LS Courtland Clavette: #44
DE Ryan Delaire: #75
CB Deshazor Everett: #38
S Chris Hackett: #35
WR Rannell Hall: #16
LB Josh Keyes: #49
DT Caushaud Lyons: #68
WR Josh Reese: #19
LB Michael Reynolds: #71
DE Jamal Young: #67

The Bucs had already announced the jersey numbers for their draft picks, which you can find here.
