Buccaneers signed Florida WR/KR Solomon Patton.

Patton (5-foot-8 1/2, 179) made only eight career starts for the Gators, but set UF school records for single-season kick return average (29.2 yards) as a senior, and career average (27.7 yards). He had a 100-yard kickoff return touchdown in 2013. Patton finished his college career with 52 catches for 635 yards (12.2 YPR) and six TDs. With 4.38 wheels, Patton could be an impact return specialist even if he never develops an NFL receiving game.
