We’re at that time of the summer when NFL teams are constantly shuffling their rosters. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added another offensive lineman to their ranks today.
Tampa Bay signed free agent tackle Jonathan Hubbard, the fourth offensive lineman the team has picked up in the last 11 days. Hubbard, who was waived by the Dolphins last week, is the third tackle the team has added in that time frame, along with Jake Benzinger and Brandon Walton.
Hubbard played in Miami’s first preseason game before getting cut. He’s in his second NFL season after starting 21 games at Northwestern State in 2018 and 2019.
Tampa Bay has until 4 p.m. ET tomorrow to announce a corresponding move for Hubbard. That’s when the league requires teams to have their rosters trimmed to 80 players.
We’ve signed T Jonathan Hubbard.#GoBucs

Tampa Bay has been working through a slew of offensive line injuries during training camp, which has necessitated them adding personnel up front.
The team is set at offensive tackle with Donovan Smith on the left side and Tristan Wirfs manning the right, but perhaps Hubbard can crack the roster as a backup at those spots.
