Bucs already busy signing free agents

TAMPA – The season may be over but the work at One Buc Place never stops. In recent days the Bucs have been busy signing players who they hope will one day turn into the next Donald Penn, Greg White or Earnest Graham.
It’s all part of the off-season routine. Teams regularly sign what they call “street free agents’’ to reserve/future contracts that will allow them to be on the team’s roster come the first day of the league year in March.
Only players who were not on any NFL team’s active roster when the 2005 season ended are eligible for such signings. Those signed by the Bucs to free-agent/future contracts so far include:
DE Marquies Gunn (Auburn), DB Marcus Hamilton (Virginia), G Brian Johnson (LSU), DB Darrell Hunter (Miami, Ohio), TE Daniel Fells (Cal-Davis) and WR Hankton Cortez (Texas Southern).
