Herron, 23, was take in sixth round of last year’s draft by the Buccaneers, so it’s interesting to see them move on so quickly.
Herron has another three years remaining on his four-year, $2.332 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $510,00 for the 2015 season.
In 2014, Herron appeared in eight games for the Bucs and caught six passes for 58 yards receiving and a touchdown.
