Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Two more rookies onboard



The Bucs signed two more of their draft picks today, with fifth-round choice Greg Peterson and sixth-round selection Adam Hayward signing deals.

Peterson, a defensive tackle from North Carolina Central, is expected to compete for a backup role in training camp. He was a Division II All-American in his two years at NCCU.

Hayward, a linebacker from Portland State, started 11 games there after transferring from Colorado State. He had 11 sacks and 19 tackles-for-loss in 22 games at Portland State.

The Bucs have now signed four of their 10 draft picks. Also signed are fourth-round choice Tanard Jackson and seventh rounder Marcus Hamilton. But there is some heavy lifting left to do. First-round pick Gaines Adams isn't expected to be signed before next week, when most first-rounders will be finalizing their deals as camps set to open. Ditto for the team's pair of second-round picks, Arron Sears and Sabby Piscitelli.
