Buccaneers Sign Top Undrafted Running Back

Tampa Bay may have gotten an undrafted free agent bargain. After being linked to Bijan Robinson (who went top-10) for months, the Tampa Bay

Buccaneers didn't choose a running back. However, the Buccaneers quickly signed a top undrafted running back.

On Saturday night, former Syracuse star Sean Tucker signed an undrafted free agent contract with Tampa Bay.

Tucker had a record-setting career with the Orange but dropped down boards due to an injury that prevented him from working out at the NFL Combine.

The Maryland native had a private Pro Day last week after being medically approved earlier this month.

He bench-pressed 29 times and had a 38-inch vertical jump. Tucker performed a 4.33-second and 4.39-second 40-yard sprint on social media in March.

If healthy, Tampa Bay may have gotten a bargain among undrafted free agents. Tucker was a great running back in his class before this strange scenario.

He started four games at Syracuse and never looked back. Tucker set the single-season rushing record in 2021 with 246 carries for 1,496 yards and 12 touchdowns

He was a First-Team All-American and two-time All-ACC selection in college. He played 33 games, rushing for 589 yards and 27 touchdowns and caught 64 receptions for 622 yards and four additional touchdowns.

The 5-foot-10, 209-pound prospect joins Tampa Bay running backs Rachaad White, Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Chase Edmonds,

and Patrick Laird. If he can replicate his Syracuse success, Tucker might make the 53-man roster or practice squad.
