Buccaneers officially sign Tim Jennings, announce eight-man practice squad

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finally officially signed of Tim Jennings, a move that they'd announced since last Thursday but hadn't finalized as they tweaked the 53-man roster. Jennings is likely to sign a minimum salary deal, given that he's still being paid $4 million by the Chicago Bears for not playing this year -- any salary the Bucs would give him is subtracted from that $4 million, according to Ian Rapoport.

Jennings is most likely to compete for the slot cornerback position with Sterling Moore, who was signed this offseason but disappointed in the preseason. Given that Jennings is only now joining the team, I wouldn't expect him to be ready to play a significant role this Sunday.

The Bucs also announced the signing of eight players to the practice squad, all of which were reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times yesterday. Those signings, for completion's sake: WR Kaelin Clay, WR Donteea Dye, CB Imoan Claiborne, CB Jude Adjei-Barimah, LB Josh Keyes, T Terren Jones, T Edawn Coughman and DE Howard Jones.
