According to Jenna Laine of ESPN.com, the Bucs have signed offensive tackle Jarron Jones.
Source tells me that the Bucs have signed former Giants offensive tackle Jarron Jones. He was waived last week. The Bucs have several injuries along their offensive line right now, so they need the depth. https://t.co/aYBdfKMP8O— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) August 7, 2018
The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Jones was signed as a rookie free agent by the New York Giants last May. The former Notre Dame defensive tackle played in all four preseason games before being waived on September 2nd.
Jones later joined the practice squads of the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys but he was waived by the Cowboys this past May. The Giants signed him again in June before releasing him last week.
The news comes after Caleb Benenoch - who is thought to be the starter at right guard - returned to practice today after missing time since last Friday, but the Bucs are still missing backup tackles Leonard Wester and Cole Gardner due to injury.
