The Buccaneers have lost three straight games and they are tweaking their roster ahead of next Monday’s date with the Panthers as they try to snap the losing streak.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that the Buccaneers have promoted wide receiver Jeremy Butler to their active roster. Butler signed to the Buccaneers’ practice squad after failing to make the Ravens this summer.

Butler caught 31 passes for 363 yards in eight games for the Ravens last year and caught 16 passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns this preseason.

The Bucs promoted Freddie Martino from the practice squad a couple of weeks ago with Cecil Shorts ailing, but waived him along with linebacker Josh Keyes on Monday. They signed defensive lineman John Hughes to fill one spot and Butler will hold down the other one.

    Congrats Jeremy. The best WR on the Ravens this preseason. Here’s wishing you a 100 yard, 2 TD game on sunday.
