The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed cornerback James Rogers and defensive tackle Teryl White Wednesday and both players are eligible to compete in Friday night’s preseason opener at Miami.
Those two additions filled spots on the 90-man roster after the Bucs released cornerback Derrick Roberson and defensive end Jayme Mitchell left the team. Roberson played for new Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano at Rutgers and spent some time with the 2009 Buccaneers.
Rogers was used at both corner and wide receiver at Michigan and recently played in the Arena League. After a solid career at North Carolina Central, White played for British Columbia of the Canadian Football League.
