Bucs re-sign practice squad receiver

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued to bolster their roster for the offseason, signing their 10th future free agent. It just happens to be another player the Bucs are familiar with.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed wide receiver Taye Biddle to a future free agent contract, according to a league source.

The second-year receiver out of Mississippi signed with the Bucs on Sept. 2 after the Carolina Panthers released him. At the time, Biddle was believed to be signing as a kickoff return specialist.

But, two days later the Bucs released Biddle after signing linebacker Jeremiah Trotter to back up Barrett Ruud.

The Bucs re-signed Biddle to the practice squad on Sept. 6 and he remained there the rest of the season.

Biddle is the 10th player to sign with the Buccaneers since the end of the postseason. Signings like Biddle's won't count against the Bucs' roster load until March.

The other signings are WR Charlie Spiller, WR Cortez Hankton, TE Daniel Fells, DB Darrell Hunter, DE Marquies Gunn, DB Marcus Hamilton, OG Brian Johnson and OT Dennis Roland and TE Keith Heinrich.
