The 2018 NFL Draft is complete and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already landed a few coveted undrafted free agents. NFL teams start trying to sign these UDFAs the second the draft ends but most moves become official this week.
While most UDFAs end up being little more than camp bodies, there are players that make the 53-man roster each season. The prospects all went undrafted for a reason, but they all have the potential to make it in the NFL in some role. And sometimes, teams strike gold with an Arian Foster or Tony Romo.
We have every player the Bucs have signed below.
Austin Allen, QB, Arkansas
Brian Bridgewater, TE, LSU
Donnie Ernsberger, TE, Western Michigan
Riley Ferguson, QB, Memphis
Demone Harris, DE, Buffalo
Godwin Igwebuike, S, Northwestern
Evan Perrizo, DE, Minnesota State
Erv Philips, WR, Syracuse
Jason Reese, TE, Missouri
Antonio Simmons, DE, Georgia Tech
It's a relatively small group for the Bucs, although they might not be done yet.
Perhaps the most notable player on the list is Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson, who began his career at Tennessee before transferring. He put up great stats in both seasons as Memphis' starter, throwing for 7,955 yards with 79 touchdowns and just 19 interceptions in 26 starts.
Austin Allen is another quarterback the Bucs are trying out as it's clear they're trying to find some younger depth behind Jameis Winston.
Tight end was the other position Tampa Bay is trying to add depth to, shown by them signing three notable tight ends (Brian Bridgewater, Donnie Ernsberger, and Jason Reese) in this group.
