Buccaneers Sign Solomon Patton

TUESDAY, 11:38am: The Bucs have officially signed Patton, waiving tight end D.J. Williams to accommodate the move, per Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com.

MONDAY, 2:54pm: The Buccaneers will sign punt returner/kick returner Solomon Patton off of the Cardinals’ practice squad, his agent tells Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune (via Twitter).

Patton, 24, has appeared in six games each for the Cardinals and Bucs this season. The wide receiver has mainly seen work as a kick returner in the NFL as he has just one reception to his credit this year. Patton has returned ten punts for 112 yards and 17 kicks for 393 yards. Pro Football Focus (sub. req’d) isn’t kind to Patton’s work as a kick returner, ranking him 160th out of 172 players.
