The Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed offensive guard Hayworth Hicks off waivers from Kansas City and waived wide receiver David Gilreath on Monday. Hicks also spent time with the Jets and Colts this season, though the rookie out of Iowa State has yet to play in a game.
Gilreath began his professional career as an undrafted free agent -- he signed with the Colts in 2011 and bounced from the Bills to the Rams to the Steelers over the next six months. Tampa Bay claimed him off waivers from the Steelers on Nov. 29 of this year. He appeared in three games for Pittsburgh during November and did not have a reception. Those three games are the extent of his NFL experience.
The Buccaneers have lost three games in a row, all of them by eight points or fewer. They'll try to end that streak when they meet the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.
