Buccaneers' Sean Renfree: Inks futures deal with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Renfree signed a future/reserve contract with the Buccaneers on Friday, The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Renfree appears to have a legitimate path toward making the final roster in Tampa Bay, as 2016's No. 2 QB, Mike Glennon, seems destined to land elsewhere via free agency for a chance to earn a starting gig. In turn, third-stringer Ryan Griffin should bump up into the No. 2 role, clearing room for Renfree to secure No. 3 duties.

Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Has rollercoaster rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguayo finished the 2016 season with a 22-for-31 tally on field goals, as well as a 32-for-34 mark on extra-point attempts.

Aguayo was one of the more talked-about rookie kickers in recent memory, given his surprise second-round selection last spring. The FSU product endured the requisite ups and downs that seem to affect the majority of first-year players, except that the spotlight shone particularly bright on his mistakes given the individualistic nature of his position. There were definitely times when it looked like Aguayo had this NFL thing figured out -- such as a pair of separate three-game stretches when he was perfect on all his kicks -- but they would inevitably be followed by games with some confounding misses from fairly manageable distances. The 40-to-49-yard range seemed to particularly bedevil Aguayo, as he was only able to connect on four of 10 attempts from that area of the field. That particular statistical nugget might best crystallize what has to be the biggest concern for the soon-to-be second-year player and the Bucs alike; NFL teams eventually have no use for a kicker, regardless of draft position, that can't consistently convert from what is usually the most common range for field-goal attempts throughout the course of a season. A diligent worker by all accounts, Aguayo will undoubtedly focus on honing his accuracy throughout the offseason. However, the Bucs aren't going to let him cruise into the 2017 campaign without competition, already having inked former Liberty University kicker John Lunsford, who booted an NCAA-record 12 field goals of over 50 yards, to a futures contract on Jan. 4.

Buccaneers' Josh Huff: Makes minor impact in short 2016 Bucs stint
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Huff secured three of six targets for 41 yards, rushed once for five yards, and gained 72 yards on six punt returns during the Bucs stint of his 2016 campaign.

Huff's 2016 season wasn't dull by any stretch, with the third-year receiver opening the season as a starter in Philadelphia, picking up DUI, drug possession and weapons charges, getting subsequently released by the Eagles, and then latching on with the Bucs and eventually making his way onto the active roster. The University of Oregon product had shown more than enough playmaking ability in his two-plus seasons with the Eagles, during which he'd notched 48 receptions on 75 targets for 482 yards and four touchdowns in 34 games, while also compiling 1,165 yards and touchdowns of 107 and 98 yards on 42 punt returns. Huff was promoted to the Bucs' active roster on Dec. 6 after a near month-long stay on the practice squad and was also signed to a two-year contract extension on the same day, ensuring that he'll have a chance to continue developing his skills in Tampa for the foreseeable future. Blessed with excellent speed and a diverse skill set, Huff is a fantasy prospect with some upside heading into the offseason, given the team's need to find multiple viable options in the passing game alongside Mike Evans. Huff's special teams acumen gives an additional boost to his potential value in formats that take return yards and touchdowns into account.

Buccaneers' Cecil Shorts: Future in doubt after catastrophic knee injury in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shorts finished the 2016 season with 11 receptions (27 targets) for 152 yards and no scores over nine games. He also returned one kickoff for 19 yards.

The sixth-year pro arrived in Tampa five days prior to the season opener after a surprise release by the Texans, and it could well prove to be the final stop of his career. Shorts suffered a catastrophic knee injury in Week 13 versus the Chargers, one that saw him tear the ACL, MCL and PCL in his right knee. Going on 30 years of age, the Mt. Union product is thus likely to encounter significant difficulty in regaining both the necessary explosion and requisite interest from teams that would enable him to once again acquire gainful employment in the league. Shorts also had trouble achieving separation on a consistent basis when he was healthy in 2016, as he notably went without a reception in three of the nine contests he was active for, and tallied just one catch in four others. A veteran with a solid track record, Shorts was thought to have a realistic chance of vaulting Adam Humphries for the slot receiver role when he was first signed, but then actually was handed the reins of the No. 2 job once Vincent Jackson (knee) was lost to injury. Having failed to make a significant impact in that role and now also facing an extensive rehabilitation, he doesn't figure to be on the NFL radar in 2017 at a minimum.

Buccaneers' Freddie Martino: Logs first eight catches of career in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martino hauled in eight of 11 targets for 142 yards and a touchdown in 2016 over 13 games.

The 25-year-old speedster finally saw some meaningful regular-season game action in 2016, after having logged only one previous appearance back in 2014 with the Falcons. Martino's history with Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter facilitated his opportunity in Tampa, which began during last offseason's OTAs. The North Greenville product proceeded to have an uneven training camp, but did finish the preseason with eight receptions on 14 targets for 95 yards, with the bulk of that production coming in the final exhibition tilt. He then sandwiched a pair of practice squad stints around a brief stay on the active roster before being promoted for good on Oct. 22. Martino logged at least one reception in six of the remaining nine games of the season, with his best outing a four-catch, 56-yard effort against the Chargers in Week 13. After playing 2016 on a prorated one-year deal, Martino is an exclusive rights free agent that should have a solid opportunity to compete for a depth receiver spot in 2017, considering the Bucs' need for downfield speed at the position behind Mike Evans.
