Buccaneers: Charles Tillman, Ted Ginn among free agent visitors


The Buccaneers publicly confirmed five free agent visits on their website Wednesday, with three players listed in PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100 among those who have met with Tampa Bay.

Bears cornerback Charles Tillman (No. 49 on the Hot 100), Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Collins (No. 50) and Packers center Evan Dietrich-Smith (No. 92) are among the unrestricted free agents to have visited with Tampa Bay. Patriots reserve linebacker Dane Fletcher also has met with the Buccaneers, the club confirmed on its website.

Fletcher, Tillman, Collins and Dietrich-Smith had all previously been linked to Tampa Bay in various media reports.

The Bucs also announced that Panthers wide receiver/returner Ted Ginn had visited, which appears to be a bit of new free agency news. Ginn, 28, hauled in 36 passes for 556 yards and five TDs for Carolina in 2013. Ginn is also an accomplished kickoff and punt returner, with six career return TDs to his credit.
