The Tampa Bay Buccaneers promoted wide receiver Adam Humphries from the practice squad to the active roster on Wednesday.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Humphries has two receptions for 14 yards in three games with the Buccaneers this season. He is an undrafted rookie out of Clemson who spent the offseason with the Bucs and was on the team’s roster for the first four games before heading back to the practice squad.

The Bucs also signed wide receiver Andre Davis, offensive lineman Ryan Groy, defensive tackle Derrick Lott and linebacker Julian Stanford to the practice squad.

The 6-1, 211-pound Davis played at the University of South Florida and entered the NFL this past offseason as a college free agent with the Buffalo Bills. Davis spent the offseason and preseason with Buffalo, before being waived prior to the start of the regular season.

The 6-5, 320-pound Groy originally entered the league in 2014 with the Chicago Bears as a college free agent out of Wisconsin. He played in four games, with three starts, for Chicago during the 2014 season, while also seeing time on the team’s practice squad. This past offseason, Groy was traded to the New England Patriots, before being waived prior to the start of the regular season.

The 6-4, 314-pound Lott and the 6-1, 230-pound Stanford re-join the Buccaneers, with each having spent time on the team’s practice squad this season.
