Bucs agree to terms with 11 college free agents
Two days after the end of the NFL draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms with 11 college free agents Monday. The team also released tight end Steve Maneri, in addition to waiving cornerback Bobby Felder and tight end Josh Baker.
The lone player with Florida ties in the Bucs’ college free-agent crop is former Florida wide receiver Solomon Patton, who had a career-high 44 catches for 556 yards and six touchdowns last season. He had a combined eight catches for 79 yards in his previous three seasons with the Gators.
Meanwhile, Maneri was signed in February and Baker in April. Felder was claimed off waivers last October after serving a short stint with the Minnesota Vikings following his entrance into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He has played in no regular-season games.
