The Bucs signed seven former practice squad players to futures contracts Monday.
Joining the regular roster is Jon Bradley, Scott Jackson, Robert Johnson, Derek McCoy, DeAndrew Rubin, Ronyell Whitaker and Kevin Youngblood.
Practice squad contracts expire at the end of the regular season, making all seven players free agents.
Most of the players spent a portion of the 2004 season on the Bucs' practice squad. Bradley, a defensive tackle, was on the active roster for six weeks. He recorded six tackles and his first career sack. Whitaker, a defensive back, spent the final month of the 2003 season on the 53-man roster.
