The Tampa Buccaneers announced Thursday that they’ve signed LS Drew Ferris to a futures contract for the 2018 season.
As of now, the Buccaneers have signed nine players to futures deals including:
- LB Eric Nzeocha
- OT Givens Price
- DB Reese Fleming
- OT Brad Seaton
- FB Austin Johnson
- WR Devin Lucien
- G Avery Young
- WR Jake Lampman
- LS Drew Ferris
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Ferris wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in May of 2016. He was set to make base salaries of $450,000 and $540,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Seahawks cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
During his college career at Florida, Ferris appeared in 38 games.
