The Tampa Bay Buccaneers attempted to add competition and depth to its wide receiver position Tuesday by signing Darnell Jenkins to their eight-man practice squad.
Jenkins, 26, has spent time with Houston and Cleveland since entering the NFL in 2008 as an undrafted free agent out of Miami, playing mostly as a practice squad member. The Browns released Jenkins on Nov. 10.
In four seasons with the Hurricanes, Jenkins caught 90 passes for 1,274 yards and five touchdowns.
The Buccaneers will announce a practice squad roster move to make room for Jenkins.
