The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed two tryout players to contracts on Sunday including Southeastern CB Mark Myers and University of Indianapolis OL Ruben Holcomb following the team’s rookie minicamp, according to Greg Auman.
The Bucs confirmed the signings and announced the release of S Josh Liddell, WR Devin Lucien and LB Antonio Simmons.
Lucien, 24, is a former seventh-round pick by the Patriots out of Arizona State in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was in the first year of a four-year rookie contract when the Patriots decided to waive him and sign him to their practice squad.
New England re-signed him to a futures contract back in February but was eventually waived with an injury settlement at the start of the 2016 season. Lucien had brief stints on the Colts, Chiefs, and Texans’ practice squads before joining the Buccaneers.
Lucien returned to the Buccaneers on a futures contract this past January.
During his four-year college career, Lucien recorded 124 receptions for 1,826 yards receiving (14.7 YPC) and 12 touchdowns.
Holcomb wound up going undrafted out of Southeastern a few weeks ago before securing a tryout with the Buccaneers soon after.
During his senior year at Southeastern, Holcomb recorded 16 tackles, a forced fumble, an interception and a pass defense over the course of 12 games.
