I just got a look at the list of signing bonuses the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave to their undrafted rookie free agents, and it’s pretty enlightening.
Apparently, the Bucs think defensive end Chaz Sutton, offensive tackle Matt Patchan and defensive tackle Euclid Cummings have the best chance of making the roster. Those three rookies received the highest signing bonuses from the Bucs.
Sutton led the way with a $15,000 signing bonus. Patchan was next at $14,850 and Cummings was third with a $10,000 bonus.
The rest of the signing bonuses are as follows: receiver Solomon Patton $9,000, linebacker Nate Askew $7,500, offensive lineman Josh Allen $5,000, receiver Aaron Burks $5,000, guard Andrew Miller $5,000, cornerback Keith Lewis $3,000, and safety Mycal Swaim $3,000.
Quarterback Brett Smith, who already has been released, received a $3,000 signing bonus.
