Buccaneers Sign Two Defensive Ends

The Buccaneers have added some reinforcement to their defense today, as the team has signed a pair of defensive ends. Mike Kaye of First Coast News reports (via Twitter) that the organization has signed Tavaris Barnes, while Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (via Twitter) that the Bucs added Sterling Bailey.

Tavaris BarnesBarnes, a former undrafted free agent out of Clemson, has spent time with the Saints and Seahawks. He ended up appearing in 12 games for Seattle during the 2015 season, compiling five tackles. Kaye had reported that the defensive end was working out for the team earlier today.

Meanwhile, Bailey joined the league as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia in 2016. The 24-year-old has had brief stints with the Colts, Seahawks, and Vikings, but he’s yet to make an NFL appearance.

The two players will be joining a crowded Buccaneers defensive end depth chart. Behind starters William Gholston and Robert Ayers, the team is currently rostering Noah Spence, Jacquies SmithDaVonte Lambert, Ryan RussellChanning Ward, and George Johnson. Of course, Ayers, Spence, Smith, and Russell are currently recovering from injuries, so today’s acquisitions might solely be intended for additional depth during OTAs.

Minor NFL Transactions: 4/28/16

While we prepare for the start of the 2016 NFL draft, teams around the league are still tweaking their rosters. Here are today’s minor moves:

  • The Ravens have officially re-signed guard/tackle De’Ondre Wesley, the team announced (Twitter link). Wesley had been an exclusive rights free agent, so he wasn’t going anywhere after being tendered by Baltimore.
  • The Dolphins announced today (via Twitter) that they’ve cut defensive back Damarr Aultman, wide receivers Tyler Davis and Robert Herron, defensive tackle Robert Thomas, and linebacker Terrell Manning. Of those players, only Manning – as a vested veteran – will immediately hit the open market, while the rest will have to pass through waivers.
  • The Seahawks have signed defensive end Tavaris Barnes, per Mike Kaye of First Coast News (on Twitter). Former Oregon tight end Brandon Williams also inked a one-year pact with the Seahawks, according to his agent Angelo Wright (Twitter link).
  • Having made two additions to their roster, the Seahawks also removed a player, according to Dov Kleiman of RantSports, who tweets that quarterback Phillip Sims has been waived. Seattle had signed Sims to a reserve/futures contract back in January.
