In addition to adding defensive tackle Steve McLendon in a trade with the New York Jets this week, the Bucs have also activated receiver John Hurst from the injured reserve and have signed cornerback Mazzi Wilkins to their practice squad after being waived last month, per Greg Auman of The Athletic.

Hurst landed on the injured reserve with an ankle injury prior to the Bucs’ Week 1 game against the Saints and the addition of Wilkins comes after undrafted free agent Parnell Motley was acquired off of waivers by the San Francisco 49ers last week.

This team seems to be rich in wide receiver depth, especially with Tyler Johnson beginning to show some promise. Wish I could say the same about our CB depth. The slow footed Mazzi Wilkins has never inspired me with a lot of confidence.

Quite honestly with the tempo the Bucs played with against a top team this in this league, whatever changes we make to try and fix our biggest problems is a good step.

we showed our gel as a defense last week another Florida player to the mix is always a good thing

Biggest position we need to address is backup QB. If Brady goes down, we’re f**ked. After that, maybe a replacement for Donovan Smith. Dude is flashes of Kenyatta “10 yards, repeat first down” Walker.
