The Buccaneers have been active in free agency, but primarily on the offensive side of the ball and late Thursday night signed another receiver – former Toledo record-setter Eric Page.
While not the big names fans are hoping for, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to add more players to their roster. Late Thursday night Tampa Bay signed free agent receiver Eric Page who was signed last season as an undrafted free agent by the Denver Broncos, but released last summer with an injury settlement.
Page played his college football for Toledo and ended his career as the schools all-time leading receiver. Page caught 306 passes for 3,443 yards and 25 touchdowns in three seasons for Toledo.
Most assumed defense would be the free agent priority this offseason but it is clear the Buccaneers aren’t done tinkering with their record-setting offense. So far this offseason the Buccaneers have added wide receivers Page, Kevin Ogletree, Steve Smith in addition to tight end Tom Crabtree. Tampa Bay also added former Rutgers running back Brian Leonard and released running back D. J. Ware.
Tampa Bay’s receiving corps now have the above mentioned players, plus 2012 holdovers Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Tiquan Underwood and Chris Owusu.
Head coach Greg Schiano said just after the season ended he wanted more competition and general manager Mark Dominik has obliged – at least offensively.
