Jacquies (pronounced ja-QWEESE) spent the 2012 preseason with Miami before being waived in the final round of cuts and added to the New York Jets practice squad later that season. The Dallas native was with the Jets during the 2013 offseason and preseason before being waived in the final round of cuts and joining the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad. He will wear No. 56 for the Buccaneers.

In his pro career, Butler has played in 26 games, recording four tackles, one forced fumble and six special teams tackles. Originally entering the league in 2010 as a fifth-round pick (164th overall) of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Butler - who played collegiately at Clemson - has spent time with Pittsburgh, Arizona, Washington, Buffalo and San Diego during his four-year NFL career. He will wear No. 26 for the Buccaneers
