The Bucs announced that they have signed four players out of rookie mini-camp after their performances last Friday and Saturday.

Safety D’Cota Dixon, outside linebacker David Kenney, tackle Riley Mayfield and wide receiver Spencer Schnell will all be at practice when the Bucs get back to organized team activities on Tuesday.

Concurrently, the Bucs waived tackle Israel Helms, wide receiver Malik Taylor, and tight end Isaiah Searight while releasing running back Kerwynn Williams. These moves were made to make room for the newly signed players.

Dixon played in the Big Ten Conference at Wisconsin and Mayfield spent his college career playing for North Texas in Conference USA. Both Kenney and Schnell played for Illinois State, which is a FCS team. Kenny also began his career in the Big Ten at Indiana before transferring to Illinois State.

As Greg Auman reported, Dixon will wear number 38, Kenney has number 46, Mayfield is wearing 75, and Schnell will have 83 on his jersey.

Wow! We get nothing for losing Kwon and Hump and replacing them with God knows what, ridiculous. Holes are all over this roster. The O line is still horrible – the same as it was last year. Everyone will blame Jamies and the RB’s, but it’s the O line stupid! And the D line may be worse. We are so weak in the trenches it kills me. But glad we got three DB’s that run 4.3, 4.4. Six draft picks dedicated to DB’s in last two drafts and we can’t block or rush the passer. How does Jason Licht still… Read more »

the big comp pick payoff is a year later (i think), when about 10 dudes on 1 year contracts don’t come back and are (hopefully) replaced with drafted players coming up behind them. still, it’s hard to believe the bucs get nothing when the highest paid replacement they brought in was a fraction of the salary either of those guys scored in their new deals
