Melton, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bears back in 2009. The Bears used their franchise tag on Melton back in 2013, but allowed him to depart and sign on with the Cowboys as an unrestricted free agent the following years.

The Buccaneers elected to sign Melton to a one-year contract in May of last year.
