The Buccaneers had several veteran players in over the weekend on tryouts during rookie minicamp. Apparently they liked what they saw out of a few them signing two. According to Adam Schefter the Buccaneers signed cornerback Antonio Hamilton to a one year deal.

Hamilton last played with the Kansas Cuty Chiefs primarily on special teams during 2020. In Super Bowl 55 Hamilton played 24 snaps for the AFC squad, he now joins the winners of that game. He joins a loaded Buccaneers cornerback room and competition with Nate Brooks, Herb Miller, Chris Wilcox and Cameron Kinley for the final spot(s) on the depth chart.
Following Hamilton is the signing of tight end Jerell Adams per Greg Auman.
Bucs are also signing former Giants tight end Jerell Adams to a one-year deal after he was a tryout player at rookie minicamp. Now will compete with Tanner Hudson and Codey McElroy for fourth tight end spot.

Adams made several solid catches and did enough to catch the coaches eyes as a try out player. Adams, 28, last stop was with the Houston Texans in 2019, with his best seasons coming in 2016-2017 with the New York Giants. Which saw him compile 24 catches for 214 yards and one touchdown. He’ll compete with Tanner Hudson and Codey McElroy for a potential fourth tight end spot on the roster or the top practice squad spot.
With the two signings it currently puts the Buccaneers roster at 85 players with Antonio Brown yet to officially re-sign. Leaving four spots to reach the 90 man limit. I could see a punter and possibly another running back being brought in soon. Keep it here on Bucs Report for the latest new la regarding your Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
