Former Gator running back Jeff Demps and wide receiver Solomon Patton have signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad just one day after being cut. Both had solid camps for the Bucs but were questioned whether or not they would make the official roster. Now with their second opportunity to impress the Buccaneers staff, they must give their all if they want to land a spot on the active roster.

According to Thomas Goldkamp of Gatorbait, the minimum practice-squad salary is $6,100 per week which turns out to a $107,100 for a full 17-week season.
