  2. RB Nathan Cottrell
  3. OL Coy Cronk
  4. WR Josh Hammond
  5. OL Jared Hocker
  6. WR Tim Jones
  7. DL Jeremiah Ledbetter
  8. OL Badara Traore

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Ledbetter, 27, is a former sixth-round pick by the Lions out of Arkansas in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.5 million rookie contract when he was waived coming out of the 2018 preseason.

Ledbetter signed on with the Buccaneers’ practice squad shortly after clearing waivers unclaimed. After a brief stint on the Ravens’ practice squad, he returned to Tampa Bay’s in 2019 and re-signed to a futures contract in the following year. 

From there, Ledbetter returned to the Buccaneers and had a short stint with the Cardinals before joining the Jaguars midseason. 

For his career, Ledbetter has appeared in 20 games and recorded 18 total tackles and 1.5 sacks.
