Though it remains to be seen whether Tony Dungy will be returning to the Bucs, a free-agent wideout who has been languishing on the shelf could be joining the team.
According to Pewter Report, former Jaguars wideout Matt Jones will work out for the team on Tuesday, along with four other receivers.
The others are David Tyree, Yamon Figurs, Chris Davis, and Jordan Kent.
Though Jones entered the league with more fanfare, as a converted quarterback drafted in round one four years ago by Jacksonville, Tyree has the more impressive accomplishment on his resume — the pinning of a ball against his helmet to help deliver an unlikely win over the previously 18-0 Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
Jones previously worked out for the Titans, but he has gotten no offers.
The move is likely a shot across the bow at Michael Clayton, who lobbied for more balls to be thrown his way — and then had trouble catching them on Sunday.
“You have to be accountable for what you ask for, be careful what you ask for, be careful what you wish for,” coach Raheem Morris said of Clayton on Monday.
To reinforce that point, Morris apparently will spend part of the day Tuesday figuring out whether the five men who have been wishing for another chance in the NFL will seize the moment.
And catch the ball.
