Buccaneers Sign Jets Cornerback in Free Agency

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Jordan Whitehead from the New York Jets, and now, they've dipped back into that well to sign another defensive back.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially signed a player who hasn't been with the team before — and funnily enough, he comes from the same team that Jordan Whitehead just did.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported on Friday that the Bucs are signing New York Jets cornerback Bryce Hall. Hall recently visited Tampa Bay on Thursday, so the deal got done pretty quickly.

Hall will likely serve as a CB3, competing against Zyon McCollum (should he not get the CB2 spot opened up after the Carlton Davis trade). He's played four seasons with the Jets, but he's only started one of them — during that campaign in 2021 in which he played in all 17 games, he had 66 solo tackles and 13 assists.

Hall played in nine games last year and had five solo tackles and two assists, but he also had one of his two career interceptions in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles when he picked off Jalen Hurts in the fourth quarter — the Jets would eventually deliver Philadelphia their first loss of the year.

Hall is the second free agent that Tampa Bay has signed from another squad so far, with the first being Jordan Whitehead, who also came from the Jets. Whitehead has been a Buccaneer before, though, so Hall will have to get used to the system — nonetheless, he could act as some good depth for Tampa Bay as the team looks to shore up some other areas heading into the NFL Draft.
