Of this group, the Buccaneers signed Huguenin and James to their practice squad.

Peterman, 24, was taken in the fifth-round of last year’s draft by the Bills. He signed a four-year, $2.63 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $555,000 for the 2018 season.

The Bills made the decision to finally move on from Peterman last Tuesday.

In 2018, Peterman has appeared in four games for the Bills and completed 54.3 percent of his passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 50 yards and touchdown.

Jones, 28, is a former fourth-round pick by the Steelers in the 2013 NFL Draft. He finished out the final year of his four-year rookie contract and returned to Pittsburgh on a two-year contract last offseason.

However, the Steelers elected to release Jones coming out of the preseason and they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

In 2017, Jones appeared in three games for the Steelers and recorded 23 completions on 28 attempts (82.1 percent) for 239 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Smith, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in 2015. He was in the final year of his four-year, $5.872 million rookie contract that includes $3.667 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season when the Jets waived him this past July.

Since entering the NFL, Smith has suffered two torn ACLs.

In 2016, Smith was limited to appearing in just four games and caught one pass for 20 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Marquez, 26, originally signed on with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech back in 2015. After making Los Angeles’ active roster for two straight years, he was waived in November of last year.

He signed on with the Lions’ practice squad shortly after clearing waivers and was promoted to Detroit’s active roster for the final game of 2017. The Lions elected to waive him in September.

In 2016, Marquez appeared in 14 games for the Rams and recorded three receptions for 37 yards receiving (12.3 YPC) and no touchdowns.
