The Bucs have waived Jaydon Mickens, Spencer Schnell and Nasir Player, which brings their roster down to 81, with one more cut to make to reach the new 80-player training camp squad cap by mid August.

The Bucs have now have three players in a single position group (running back) placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. It is unclear who had contact with who, and if there was contact, but it illustrates how a single position could be wiped out on a given week in the regular season.

The Bucs have placed two more players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, which means they either tested positive or were in close proximity to someone who did: running backs Raymond Calais and Aca'Cedric Ware. Ke'Shawn Vaughn is already on the list and he too is a running back.

Bucs rookie right tackle Tristan Wirfs on criticism that he's too nice: "When you put a defender on his back and help him up with a smile on your face and do it over again, I think that's gonna frustrate him more than if you're talking crap to him the whole game."

Veteran RB McCoy reaches deal with Bucs

Veteran LeSean McCoy, who finished the 2019 season ranked third among active players with 11,071 career rushing yards, has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Buccaneers, agent Drew Rosenhaus said.

LeSean McCoy's signing will push Ronald Jones and Dare Ogunbowale. The Bucs needed a running back who could contribute in the passing game and McCoy has done that in previous stops. They also had a vacancy at the position with rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn being added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week.

Adam Schefter ESPN Senior Writer 

Veteran RB LeSean McCoy reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per Drew Rosenhaus. “He's very excited to play with established vets like Brady and Gronk in trying to win another championship,” Rosenhaus said.

The Bucs have waived tight end Jordan Leggett and safety Deiondre' Hall, reducing their roster to 84 players. They'll need to reduce it to 80 though, due to new camp roster limits with COVID-19 (it's typically capped at 90 players).

Recovered Brate: Bucs workouts 'calculated risk'

Cameron Brate, who has recovered from a mild bout with the coronavirus, said Thursday participating in the Buccaneers' informal player workouts this offseason was a "calculated risk."

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs tight end Cam Brate admitted to being starstruck by Tom Brady. He said, “The first time he texted me, I had to get double confirmation from other people that it was actually Brady. He said, ‘Hey this is Tom. Give me a Facetime when you can.' So I had to reach out to Chris [Godwin] and Mike [Evans] and be like, ‘Hey. Is this Tom?' Cuz I didn't want to be calling some random dude thinking it was Tom Brady.”
