Report: Jeff Demps to join Buccaneers

September, 9, 2013
At long last, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to get a good look at Jeff Demps.

The track and field star reportedly will join the Bucs on Monday, according to Scott Reynolds. The Bucs picked up Demps as part of the LeGarrette Blount trade in the offseason. But Demps spent the summer running track.

Now, he’s ready to play football. Demps, who played running back in college at the University of Florida, might be a project. But he has world-class speed.

The Bucs will look at Demps as a return man and a backup running back.
