According to the Tampa Tribune, as of Saturday morning, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially signed all their 2011 draft picks. And according to Pewter Report, they have also officially signed all their restricted and exclusive-rights free agents.
Coming into today, the Bucs had only one last draft pick to sign: sixth round pick Allen Bradford, a running back from Southern Cal. All their other picks signed earlier in the week, and have already been working out at the Bucs’ training camp. For news on these signings and analysis on the future roles of these players, please see our other articles on Adrian Clayborn, Da’Quan Bowers, and Mason Foster.
As for the restricted and exclusive-rights free agents, the folks at Bucs Nation have the news:
Rudy Carpenter, Connor Barth, Micheal Spurlock, James Lee and Elbert Mack had already signed their tenders yesterday. The Bucs now added Demar Dotson, Michael Bennett, Frank Okam and Corey Lynch to that list.
The Bucs have also signed 16 undrafted free agents this week, and they have been busy resigning a number of their players from last year: Davin Joseph, Jeremy Trueblood, and Quincy Black. They made one free agent signing — punter Michael Koenen — and they have rumored to be in on a couple high-end free agents. They may still pursue a free agent or two on the market, but as the Bucs seem content to build through the draft, I wouldn’t expect any bombshells.
But as always, we’ll keep you updated on any moves the Bucs make over these upcoming weeks.
