The Bucs are making roster moves.

It’s roster move Tuesday, apparently. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers first waived tight end Luke Stocker and defensive end Darryl Tapp, promoted defensive end Pat O’Connor from the practice squad, and are now promoting wide receiver Jesus “Bobo” Wilson to the 53-man roster. The latter move was reported by Jenna Laine of ESPN.

Wilson was an undrafted free agent out of Florida State this season, who had a somewhat prominent moment on Hard Knocks: he went to Miami on cut day when he had specifically been told to stay in the vicinity of the facilities. The Bucs still kept him on the practice squad, though head coach Dirk Koetter was very much not happy about Wilson’s actions, claiming that he needs to change his attitude.

I guess he’s done that, as Wilson is now getting a shot to prove himself on the roster. He might be able to give Adam Humphries some competition for the slot receiver position, as Humphries has had a very disappointing season. He also has some experience as a returner, which should give him a leg up as well.
