Buccaneers Worked Out Five Players

According to Howard Balzer, the Buccaneers brought in five players for workouts on Wednesday including former Steelers WR Eli Rogers.

The full list of tryouts includes:

  1. P Trevor Daniel
  2. WR T.J. Jones
  3. WR Tommylee Lewis
  4. WR Eli Rogers
  5. RB Marcus Murphy

Rogers, 26, wound up signing on with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Louisville back in 2015. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1,580,000 contract with the Steelers before returning to the team on a one-year contract last summer. 

Rogers returned to the Steelers in March on a one-year contract but was released coming out of the preseason. 

In 2018, Rogers appeared in three games for the Steelers and caught 12 passes for 79 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Jones, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Lions back in 2014. He played out the final year of his contract and re-signed with Detroit to a one-year deal last season. 

Jones finished out his contract with the Lions and signed a one-year deal with the Steelers back in April, but was cut loose soon after. The Giants later signed him to a contract only to release him coming out of the preseason. 

Jones returned to the Giants soon after. 

In 2019, Jones has appeared in three games for the Giants and caught three passes for 38 yards receiving and one touchdown.
