Buccaneers make five roster moves as team heads to training camp

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made five roster moves ahead of the real start of training camp on Friday. The team signed cornerback Jude Adjei-Barimah, first reported by the Tampa Bay Times, safety Kimario McFadden and cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz.

The two cornerbacks are both undrafted free agents, and both of them have pretty good size for cornerbacks. Adjei-Barimah is 5'11", 200 lbs. while Shabazz is 6'2", 185 lbs. Both of them had a slew of tackles in college, which suggests some physicality and the possibility of moving to slot cornerback.

Meanwhile, McFadden was an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina last year, spent time with the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers and Bucs as a practice squad player, and he's now back in Tampa. The 5'11", 197 lbs. safety should compete for a spot on the practice squad.

At this point in the offseason, newly-signed undrafted free agents tend to primarily be camp bodies, so I wouldn't expect much out of them for now.

To make room for these players, the Bucs waived safeties Deshazor Everett and Derrick Wells.
