The defending Super Bowl champions are adding depth to their secondary.
The Buccaneers are signing free-agent cornerback Antonio Hamilton on a one-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, per agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Hamilton appeared in all 16 games last season for the Kansas City Chiefs, whom the Bucs faced in Super Bowl LV. The 28-year-old played most of his snaps on special teams and managed to collect 12 total tackles.
An undrafted veteran of five seasons, Hamilton spent the weekend at Bucs minicamp trying out for the team. He joins a young, athletic secondary that grew right before our eyes during Tampa's championship run that featured three road wins against Washington, New Orleans and Green Bay.
