Jenna Laine of ESPN reports that the Buccaneers brought in five players for workouts on Wednesday including: WR Da’Ron Brown, TE Clay Burton, DB Daniel Robertson, LB Jason Fanaika, LB Quentin Gause, WR Matt Hazel, LB Brandon Hepburn, LB Randell Johnson, DE Chris McCain, WR Jamal Robinson and DT Sealver Siliga.
Siliga, 26, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Utah back in 2011. He lasted just a few months with the 49ers before signing on with the Broncos and later being traded to the Seahawks for G John Moffitt. Seattle elected to waive Siliga a few months later before he signed to the Patriots’ practice squad.
The Patriots didn’t tender Siliga a restricted offer, which allowed him to test the market as an unrestricted free agent. The Seahawks signed him to a contract back in March before putting him on injured reserve and later cutting him loose coming out of the preseason.
In 2015, Siliga appeared in 13 games for the Patriots and recorded 28 tackles and no sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 79 interior defensive lineman out of 123 qualifying players.
Brown, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Chiefs back in May of last year. He was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to their Kansas City’s practice squad.
The Chiefs elected to bring Brown back on a future/reserve contract this past January, but he was once again among the roster cuts coming out of the preseason. The Patriots signed Brown to a contract a few weeks ago only to cut him loose a few days later.
During his college career, Brown caught 155 passes for 2,295 yards receiving and 19 touchdowns while contributing another 160 yards rushing and two touchdowns on the ground.
Brown has yet to appear in an NFL game.
