The Tampa Bay Buccaneers inked two players at positions of need on Thursday after holding their voluntary workouts. RB Robert Hughes and S Ron Girault are the latest members of the Buccaneers. Both players entered the NFL as undrafted free agents.
Girault was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an UFA in 2008 and has also spent time with the New York Jets. The Buccaneers released S Tanard Jackson earlier this week and during voluntary workouts this week, veteran CB Ronde Barber was moved into the safety position during the workouts. Safety is a position of need now for the Buccaneers and rookie head coach Greg Schiano has personal knowledge of Girault. Girault was a four-year starter at Rutger University where he posted 271 tackles and ten interceptions in his career.
RB Robert Hughes spent a portion of 2011 on the Chicago Bears practice squad. Hughes, a Notre Dame product, rushed for 1,392 yards in 47 games at Notre Dame while recording 15 touchdowns.
