Bucs plan to sign 3-4 tryout players from rookie minicamp

Bucs coach Raheem Morris said the team will likely sign 3-4 tryout players from the rookie minicamp.

Morris planned to meet with GM Mark Dominik Sunday afternoon to finalize decisions. The Bucs have had success signing players from this camp in the past, including kick returner Clifton Smith. The Bucs can bring 80 players to training camp.

One of the players the Bucs worked with after practice Sunday was Wake Forest defensive tackle Boo Robinson.

"Some of these guys hopefully we can bring back,'' Morris said. "Some of these guys get put in the hopper when you need things and you need people. These camps have been really good to us for years and we like how they go.

"Your draft picks don't count until they sign. That's always helpful. You can get extra bodies. Just going on an average, we've always signed about 3-4 guys out of this thing. Some of them stick, some of them go all the way until the end. Some of them go to training camp with you. We've got a couple guys we've got in mind that did a pretty good job all camp.''
