Buccaneers Promote CB Mazzi Wilkins, Sign CB John Franklin III To PS


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Wednesday that they’ve promoted CB Mazzi Wilkins to their active roster and signed CB John Franklin III to their practice squad.

Greg Auman first reported both of these moves for the Buccaneers. 

Here’s the Buccaneers updated practice squad:

  1. S John Battle
  2. OT Brad Seaton
  3. QB Chad Kanoff
  4. C Anthony Faniano
  5. WR Ishmael Hyman
  6. RB Aca’Cedric Ware
  7. DT Jeremiah Ledbetter
  8. WR Codey McElroy
  9. DE Quinton Bell
  10. CB John Franklin III

This comes a day after the Buccaneers surprisingly cut former first-round CB Vernon Hargraves

Wilkins, 24, wound up going undrafted out of South Florida back in April. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Buccaneers but was waived coming out of the preseason.

Tampa Bay re-signed Wilkins to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

During his college career at South Florida, Wilkins recorded 109 tackles, a half sack, three interceptions and 19 pass defenses over the course of four seasons and 40 games.
