Player Transactions ComingMay 6th, 2012
New Bucs coach Greg Schiano mentioned many times this weekend that he was not monitoring the players the Bucs drafted last week during this weekend’s rookie mini-camp?
“They will be back with us,” Schiano said Friday.
But many others on the practice fields at One Buc Palace, undrafted free agent signees and players trying out, were not afforded such security. Therefore, Schiano stated he concentrated most of his time on the practice fields with those players in order to better evaluate who will return for OTAs and/or sign a contract, or those who get a pat on the back, a handshake and a warm goodbye.
Schiano today stated that “between 22 and 29” of these players will return for OTAs, depending on a variety of factors including if the players want to be used in a role chosen by the Bucs, and, of course their contracts.
Three players in this group should return. Those three include cornerbacks Leonard Johnson and Derrick Roberson, and quarterback Jordan Jefferson.
