Former Kansas wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the St. Petersburg Times reported Sunday.

Briscoe, a sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, was waived by the Cincinnati Bengals over the weekend.

According to the Times, Briscoe will report to Tampa Bay's practice squad after the Buccaneers outbid other teams for his services. The newspaper reported that Briscoe will be paid somewhere around the league rookie minimum salary, which is $325,000.

Josh Freeman is used to throwing to Jayhawks, so this is a perfect fit. Good sign Tampa Bay!

Geez. It would have been nice if he went somewhere a little set at QB, but I guess a job's a job.

Just hope he and Aquib Talib don't party too much and smoke too much ganja

Agreed KG. Kellen Winslow will probably be Freeman's favorite target in the passing game because of the lack of WR depth. Plus, the Bucs GM is a Lawrence and KU alum, so I'm sure he'll get his opportunity.

Bleed, I lived in Tampa for the last 5 years. I'd wait until late October to catch a Bucs game, unless you can swing club seats. The heat in the early part of the season at kick off is unbearable. There's a good KU group that meets at Hattrick's downtown for KU games too.

There's very little experience on that team, at WR. They now have 3 2010 draft picks on the 53 man squad. He's gonna get a much better chance down there.

I just moved to Tampa. Maybe they'll bump him up and I'll be able to watch him play.
