TAMPA — The Bucs added special teams help and depth at positions they couldn’t address in the draft by signing Packers free-agent safety Raven Greene and Broncos linebacker Joseph Jones.
Green, 26, spent the past three seasons with the Packers. He recorded 51 tackles (two for loss) seven passes defensed, four quarterback hits, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception in 20 games.
The Bucs used their first-round pick on Washington edge rusher Joe Tryon and Auburn inside linebacker K.J. Britt. But they still could use some competition at that position and on special teams.
Jones, 27, spent the past four seasons with the Broncos (2017-20), playing primarily on special teams. He collected a team-high 26 total special teams tackles during that span. A native of Plano, Illinois, Jones played collegiately at Northwestern.
The Bucs did not draft a safety. They lost veteran safety Andrew Adams when he signed with the Eagles as a free agent.
