Training camp hasn’t even started and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are already making some roster moves. The team today claimed cornerback Daniel Davie off waivers, and waived Joel Ross, according to the NFL’s daily transaction list.
Davie was an undrafted free agent today who spent the offseason with the Indianapolis Colts so far. Apparently, the Bucs like his talent enough to add him to reasonably deep group of cornerbacks. He has an uphill battle to fight to make the roster, but he has one advantage: at 6’1”, he’s taller than the vast majority of the cornerbacks currently on the roster.
Davie had a disappointing final year for Nebraska, playing in just six games and getting benched in one of them, but he did have a solid pro day with a 4.45-second 40-yard dash. The Bucs will hope that his physical talent can be harnessed, while his on-field play in his senior season isn’t representative.
