Bucs kick tires on six tight ends, four receivers

When the Bucs head to MetLife Stadium on Sunday, they won’t have to worry about dealing with cornerback Darrelle Revis, since he now, you know, plays for them.

But the Bucs still have concerns about the men who’ll be running routes and catching passes, as evidenced by the fact that they tried out 10 of them on Tuesday.

Per a league source, the Bucs looked at six tight ends (Kevin Brock, Derek Carrier, Kellen Davis (pictured), Dan Gronkowski, Richard Quinn, and Hayden Smith) and four receivers (Skye Dawson, Jared Green, Charles Hawkins, and Brandon Kaufman).

The Bucs also tried out quarterbacks Jordan Rodgers and Mike Hermann, who likely were there not to be evaluated but to throw the passes to the players who were.

Tampa has yet to sign any of the players, but there’s still several days to go before Sunday.

    Now all they have to do is kick the tires on their 6 owners.

    Why not look at a receiver with ‘elite’ skills? A receiver like Braylon ‘Hands of Stone’ Edwards.

    3 days before the season starts and you’re STILL holding tryouts?? what’s that say about your scouting department? Even more, what’s that say about your team???

    Bucks are in trouble!!!

    @woodrree:

    It’s called acquiring depth. Let that sink into your thick skull if possible. Nothing to see on pft except lame Bucs articles inviting the trolls to come out and spout their usual tired, repetitive nonsense. I love it because it’s a sign that things are headed in the right direction and we got some people worried. Go Bucs!!

    Kick in the butt if they sign Hayden Smith

    I wonder if the Bucs defense will be good enough to stop Cam Newton, Drew Brees, and Matt Ryan for 6 games?

    Hope they sign Kaufman, dude lit it up in college and would have played for a D1 school if he didn’t blow out his knee his senior year in high school

    WR was supposed to be a position of depth this season, I guess not.

    Bucs have been hurting for a decent TE since Dave Moore.
