Bucs Sign 11, Cut Two Tight EndsMay 12th, 2014
The Bucs are now down to five tight ends after cutting Steve Maneri and Josh Baker today.
And the Bucs announced their 2014 undrafted free agent signings:
Here are the rookie hopefuls with contracts. (Other names you’ve seen circulated on the Interwebs were either bogus, or they’re guys who were simply invited to the Bucs’ rookie minicamp this weekend.)
Center – Josh Allen (Louisiana-Monroe)
Linebacker – Nate Askew (Texas A&M)
Wide Receiver – Aaron Burks (Boise State)
Defensive Tackle – Euclid Cummings (Georgia Tech)
Cornerback Keith Lewis (Virginia-Lynchburg)
Guard Andrew Miller (Virginia Tech)
Tackle Matt Patchan (Boston College)
Wide Receiver Solomon Patton (Florida)
Quarterback – Brett Smith (Wyoming)
Defensive End – Chaz Sutton (South Carolina)
Safety – Mycal Swaim (Eastern Michigan)
Joe’s a bit bummed about good-guy, tough-guy Maneri, a converted tackle and former starting blocking tight end for the Chiefs who was excited to be the “edge-setter” in Tampa for Doug Martin. Joe wishes him well.
