Former Clemson and Dorman WR/Returner Adam Humphries defied the odds and after going undrafted stuck with the Tampa Bay Bucs through their final round of roster cuts Saturday.
Reports from Tampa indicate he’ll primarily be used as a return man but could also play receiver.
Former Boiling Springs and USC quarterback Dylan Thompson lost his bid to stick as the 49ers third-string QB as he was released.
Others with area ties released Saturday include:
Deshawn Williams, DL (Clemson, Daniel) Bengals
Damere Byrd, WR, (USC) Panthers
Brenton Bersin, WR (Wofford) Panthers
Dalton Freeman, C (Clemson) Bills
Da’quan Bowers, DE (Clemson) Tampa Bay
Teams can still sign eight players to their practice squads and those release Saturday have a chance to reclaim roster spots.
