The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Wednesday that they have signed wide receiver Kevin Cone and tight end Taylor Sloat to the practice squad.
Cone (6-2, 218) originally entered the NFL as a college free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in 2011. The Georgia Tech product has spent the past three seasons (2011-13) with the Falcons, playing in 29 games with one reception for 12 yards, while also adding 10 special teams tackles. Cone has also played in one postseason contest (2011).
Sloat (6-3, 245), a college free agent out of UC-Davis, took part in Tampa Bay’s rookie mini-camp this past offseason.
The team also announced that they have waived linebacker Carlos Fields and tight end Ian Thompson from their practice squad.

I’m glad to see the Coach and GM moving players in and out of the PS then either to the 53 man roster or the streets.
