Bucs sign punter, release Bradley

TAMPA, Fla. -- One last bit of minor news before I leave One Buccaneer Place. The Bucs just announced they have signed sixth-round pick Brent Bowden. They also released receiver Mark Bradley.

The Bowden news is no surprise. He’s a punter the Bucs selected out of Virginia Tech and this is the time of year when late-round picks sign their contracts. The Bradley news actually is a bit more interesting. He was a guy the Bucs claimed off waivers from Kansas City late last season and some people in the organization thought he had some upside at the time.

Apparently, the opinion changed during offseason workouts. Also, it’s probably a sign the Bucs are pleased with how rookie receivers Arrelious Benn and Mike Williams are progressing.
