More from Brianna Dix,

“On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made two roster moves. The Bucs announced that wide receiver Deven Thompkins and offensive lineman Brandon Walton – who were both set to become exclusive rights free agents – signed one-year contracts with Tampa Bay. Exclusive rights free agents are players with expiring contracts and two or fewer seasons of accrued free agency credit that are not allowed to negotiate with any other team.”

Thompkins has been a key special teams player and a quality depth piece at the wide receiver position. He joined the Buccaneers as undrafted free agent in 2023. His impact on special teams has been great. Thompkins has also been used as a wide receiver, mostly on jet sweeps and end-around plays.
