Not going to lie, I'm writing this because I'm one of a handle full of Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fans (hey at least we're not the Browns). Actually, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have quite a few players and coaches from Boise State. Our head coach Dirk Kotter was the head coach of the Broncos from 1998 to 2000. And who can forget the Muscle Hamster Doug Martin being drafted by the Buccaneers in the first round of 2012 . Jeremy McNichols was also drafted but in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, and Tyler Shoemaker was signed as a UDFA in 2012.

And it looks like the ties to Tampa Bay got a little deeper today when the Buccaneers signed UDFA Thomas Sperbeck to the roster.

Former Boise State wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck is about to get another shot in the NFL.
Sperbeck signed a free-agent deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, according to a source.
Off The Field, a local training facility where Sperbeck has been rehabbing an injury tweeted about the news.

As a die-hard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, this excited me. Sperbeck was a great receiver for the Broncos and holds the all-time receiving record for the Broncos. However, I think his chances of making the team are slim. The Bucs are actually deep at wide receiver with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, Chris Godwin, Adam Humphries, and drafting Justin Watson from Penn in the 5th round.

Regardless, GO BIG BLUE and GO BUCS
