Breaking News: Just IN Houston Texans AGREE TO SIGN ANOTHER TOP EXPERIENCED STAR FROM NFL

TAMPA — Zyon McCollum will fill the vacuum left by the Bucs’ trade of starting cornerback Carlton Davis to the Lions last week.

But that also meant that the secondary would have one or two openings for some much-needed depth.

Tavierre Thomas, a free agent from the Texans, and the Bucs reached an agreement on a one-year contract on Monday, strengthening their defensive backfield even further. For the nickel cornerback position, he will face competition from Christian Izien.

Last season, Thomas, 28, participated in nine games for Houston, starting five of them. Thirty of his 51 stops were solo, two were forced fumbles, and one was pass defensed.

After Davis was traded, Thomas becomes the second free-agent cornerback to join the Bucs, following former Jet Bryce Hall. Jordan Whitehead, an ex-Jets safety, was also signed by Tampa Bay.

In the Bucs’ 39-37 loss against the Texans in Houston the previous season, Thomas had a strong performance. With 10 tackles, including six solo stops and one tackle for loss, he led the team.

The 205-pound, 5-foot-10 player joined the Cardinals in 2018 as an undrafted free agent after graduating from Ferris State.

After spending three seasons with the Browns, Thomas spent another three with the Texans. He ended the 2023 season on injured reserve after sustaining a hamstring injury in December.
