Mike James - #25 - Running back - 5'10" - 223lbs
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: James -- whose 2013 season ended with a broken left ankle last November -- is progressing well in his recovery, the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Impact: The report notes that James, who played at about 228 pounds last season, has added some muscle to his upper body. Meanwhile, James has been running and in his words, is "very, very close" to being fully cleared. Once he's up to speed, James (who now checks in at 232 pounds) is in line to compete with Bobby Rainey for work behind the Bucs' top back, Doug Martin.
Mike Glennon - #8 - Quarterback - 6'6" - 225lbs
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Glennon plans to compete with Josh McCown for Bucs' starting QB job, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Impact: Although the free agent signee McCown wil enter training camp as the No.1, Glennon's respectable showing as a rookie combined with McCown's uneven track record should give Glennon a chance to play in 2014 at some point. However, if the Bucs' draft a QB high in the 2014 draft, then all bets are off.
Marvin Booker - Defensive End - 6'2" - 244lbs
News: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived Booker.
Impact: The linebacker is now a free agent.
Lavelle Hawkins - #15 - Wide Receiver - 5'11" - 194lbs

Major Wright - #31 - Safety - 5'11" - 204lbs
News: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed Wright.
Impact: Wright spent the first four seasons of his career with the Chicago Bears, who drafted him in the third round in 2010. He's started 42 of 54 career games and returned three of his nine interceptions for touchdowns. He reunites with former Bears coach Lovie Smith.
