The Buccaneers moved two off and one on their practice squad on Tuesday, which left them with an open spot on that eight-man crew heading into the week of preparations for the St. Louis Rams. Not surprisingly, that spot was filled before the week’s first practice on Wednesday, as the team signed rookie wide receiver Jabin Sambrano, formerly of the Colts.
The 5-11, 175-pound Sambrano signed with Indianapolis as an undrafted free agent this past May. He went to camp with the Colts and played in the preseason, seeing his most significant action as a kickoff returner, where he ran back four kicks for 107 yards (26.8 avg.). Sambrano also caught one two-yard pass and returned two punts for six yards.
A Temecula, California native, Sambrano started for three seasons at Montana, earning second-team all-conference honors as a senior after catching 36 passes for 362 yards and 10 touchdowns.
