Two try-out players that attended Tampa Bay’s rookie mini-camp have been signed by the Buccaneers. Cornerback Mark Myers and guard Ruben Holcomb were added to the team’s 90-man offseason roster as the Bucs parted ways with safety Josh Liddell, wide receiver Devin Lucien and linebacker Antonio Simmons.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Myers is a native of Orlando, Fla. and played at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla. where he had nine career interceptions, including a pick-six during his senior year, and returned two punts for touchdowns for the Fire and averaged close to 18 yards per return. During his four seasons with the Fire, Myers totaled 91 tackles, 25 passes defensed and led the team with four INTs in 2016 as a junior.
Holcomb, who played at the University of Indianapolis, was an All-American left tackle last year at the Division II level. The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Holcomb anchored an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks per game (0.5) at the Division II level. He started 44 consecutive games and helped Indianapolis to its first undefeated regular season since 1953.
