USF's Andre Davis signed to Bucs practice squad
The Bucs have signed former USF receiver Andre Davis, who rewrote the Bulls' receiving record books, to their practice squad, along with former Wisconsin guard Ryan Groy.
Davis went undrafted this spring and signed with the Bills, only to be among their final cuts in August. He pulls off the rare Tampa trifecta, having starred for Jefferson High and USF before signing with the Bucs. Groy, who started three games for the Bears last season and was traded to the Patriots in the preseason, has size to play guard or tackle at 6-foot-5, 320 pounds.
Davis has 13 USF receiving records, including career yards and touchdowns, and he'll become the fifth rookie WR on the Bucs' overall roster -- Donteea Dye is on the 53-man roster, and the Bucs had three on the practice squad in Adam Humphries, Rannell Hall and Evan Spencer. One was likely promoted to the active roster to replace Louis Murphy, who is out for the season after a knee injury Sunday.
