The Buccaneers welcome 56 tryout players to One Buc over the weekend but as of Monday, only added four to the roster. To make room Tampa Bay waived two players and terminated the contracts of guard Roger Allen and former USF standout George Selvie.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced some roster moves after the weekend rookie mini-camp and tryout. Of the 56 tryout players, four were signed to deals.

Jheranie Boyd Wide Receiver 6-2 190, North Carolina

Boys struggled last season at North Carolina catching just four passes and nabbing one TD reception. Boyd - who was not invited to the combine - ran the 40 in 4.45 seconds against the wind and 4.43 seconds with the wind at his Pro Day back in April according to scouting reports. The former Tar Hill also produced a 42-inch vertical jump and an 11-foot broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.44 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.03 seconds.

Big things were expected from Boyd during his senior season but he struggled to recover from a leg injury. As junior Boyd finished with 14 catches for 292 yards and five scores, averaging a team-high 20.9 yards per reception

Jace Daniels Tackle 6-4 300, Northern Michigan

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound left tackle started all 11 games for NMU during his junior and senior years, earning All-GLIAC second-team honors in 2011 and first-team accolades in 2012. Daniels has a decent chance of making the roster as the Buccaneers are thin at the tackle position with starters Demar Dotson and Donald Penn, and just Jamon Meredith and Mike Remmers listed as tackles on the team’s roster. Scott Reynolds noted the strong play of Daniels in his rookie mini-camp practice report, as he stonewalled Steven Means in one of the drills over the weekend.

According to the Marquette Mining Journal Tampa Bay was Daniel's preferred choice after going undrafted because they was the lone franchise that had his back from start to finish according to Daniels.

"They were the only team that stuck with me through the whole thing," Daniels said on April 28 after the draft. "They're the ones taking a shot on me right now, so that's why I decided to go with them."

Chris Denton Wide Receiver 5-11 195, Mount Union

Denton earned numerous accolades after finishing his career at Mt. Union including being named D3Football.com All-America First Team, All-North Region First Team , All-OAC First Team (returner) and All-OAC Second Team (wide receiver). Denton played in 15 games last season and had 73 catches for 960 yards with six touchdowns. During his two seasons at Mt. Union Denton totaled 1,537 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons while at Mount Union.

Denton is also known as a special teams ace, setting an NCAA record with five punt returns for touchdowns.

Ka'lial Glaud Linebacker 6-2, 230 Rutgers
Glaud was recruited and played for Bucs head coach Greg Schiano. Glaud came to Rutgers to play linebacker but made the switch to defensive end in 2012. As a senior Glaud appeared in all 13 games, making 12 starts and totaled 39 tackles and three sacks on the season. The former Scarlet Knight earned The Paul Robeson Award at team’s banquet, given annually to individual whose performance, leadership and dedication on and off the field has had the greatest impact on Rutgers football.

In other roster news, the Buccaneers also announced the free agent signing of former Panthers defensive lineman Andre Neblett (6-0, 310). Neblett played in 11 games last season, starting two after being suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. The former Temple Owl had 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks in 2012, and has 40 tackles and three sacks since being signed by Carolina as an undrafted free agent in 2010.

To clear roster space Tampa Bay also announced that it waived defensive tackle Richard Clebert, wide receiver D.J. Monroe and running back Akeem Shavers, while terminating the contracts of guard Roger Allen and defensive end George Selvie.

    Boyd looks like a real find by DOM and could make a good backup to Williams. Jace Daniels had to make a real good impression and sounds like he could be a good backup at Left Tackle. I can't wait now for the Preseason to see the battle of the run back specialists. Nice to see Denton set an NCAA record for touchdowns on run backs. Hope he can duplicate that with the faster game in the NFL. Glaud could make a weakside LB backup but he will have to beat out some of the backups we have accumulated and show great on special teams. All in all this will give us a lot better depth this year than we had last year. And let's congratulate DOM on signing a veteran DL to boost our rotation on the DL. One cut on Spence is he tended to wear down late in ball games when he got no breather. Now we know Gibson can hold his own there too, but with his age can't do it all game long. Now with Neblett we have good depth at DL. Go Bucs!!!

    Hearing about these undrafted hopefuls is great, but I can't help but think about the rebuilt secondary...Featuring Revis and Barron covering one half of the field and Banks and Goldson covering the other with Wright (and/or Barber) in the slot when they're in nickel. If the Bucs can generate some push with the D Line and the two tackling machines at LB in Foster and David can stay healthy, then this defense could be one of the best in the league. Switch to offense where the O line is just as intimidating. Freeman should have all the time he needs to find open receivers and put up lots of points. Martin could also have another huge impact with the smash mouth line the Bucs have assembled. Bucs are guaranteed to be more physical than the teams they face(AFC East, NFC West, NFC South twice, Detroit, and Philly) this year and that will make all the difference.

    @ Makski Chris Denton’s Super Regional Combine Results: 40 Yard Dash - 4.58 seconds, 5-10-5 Agility Shuttle - 4.05 seconds, Vertical Leap - 36” inches, Broad Jump - 9’7” feet.

    Everyone relax on the Rutgers thing already. The Bucs aren't going to sign Rutgers players just because of the coach. They still have to beat out the other tryout players. Also, didn't I read somewhere that New England invited 6 or 7 Rutgers players to their tryout?? I wonder if any of them made it to the NE roster.

    I like the addition of Denton, but don't we have about 11 return men on the team now? Don't know how we are going to sort out all of those guys before the season starts. Does anybody know what kind of a 40 he ran? I don't have the time to look it up now. Hopefully one of these guys or Michael Smith will win the gig quickly so we have an idea who it will be before the season.

    If you were a Rutgers player who just graduated and didn't get drafted but wanted to continue playing football, would you go to a tryout where the staff at least knew who you were? Thats what the Rutgers kids did too.

    Some people just need something to be snarky about. Notice I'm trying to be nice with my language.

    billyreese68; I agree with you on this one.

    Mark, didn't Boyd leave practice? His college bio isn't impressive either, how does he get signed if he couldn't finish the tryout?

    How did I know the Rutgers player would stick?

    There were like seven Rutgers tryout players; only one made it.
