Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bucs defensive end Jacquies ?Smith is on a visit with the 49ers right now. The Bucs gave him an original round tender (under $1.8 million) so they could sign him without draft pick compensation (was an UDFA)?. He is coming off a torn ACL that he suffered in the season opener in 2016.

Michigan safety Jabrill Peppers told ESPN's Michael Rothstein that he met with the Bucs after his pro day workout today. He also met with the Saints and Cardinals on Thursday.

Bucs secondary coach Jon Hoke worked out Washington safety Budda Baker on Wednesday. He's worked out for six teams so far. At 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, he's a bit undersized, but has a knack for flying around the ball. Very instinctive. Sure-tackler. There's some Tyrann Matthieu to him.

Source tells me UConn safety Obi Melifonwu had a private meeting today with Bucs defensive backs coach Brett Maxie. He had a really solid pro day Wednesday. Showed great movement, fluidity, footwork and was explosive when he accelerated. Scouts really like his length too. He posted a 44-inch vertical at the combine (one inch off the combine all-time record) and his 6-foot-4 frame gives him the ability to match up against bigger receivers and tight ends.

Source tells me Bucknell offensive tackle Julien Davenport is meeting with Bucs offensive line coach George Warhop tonight for dinner and has a private workout with him tomorrow. He's got upcoming private workouts with the 49ers, Cowboys and Giants and met with the Chargers before his pro day last week. He's 6-foot-7, has an 87.5 inch wingspan and is a former basketball player. Great footwork.

Keenan McCardell puts wide receiver Rodney Adams through drills at USF pro day. He also had him return punts at the end of the workout.

USF wide receiver Rodney Adams has been training with Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston in Orlando. Lot of experience working with a quarterback who improvises and makes plays outside the pocket. Very productive on special teams too.

USF running back Marlon Mack has an upcoming private workout with the Titans. He's also had multiple talks with the Bucs, has spoken with the Falcons, Colts and Jets.

I'm told that Toledo running back Kareem Hunt has a private workout with the Bucs tomorrow. Runs with good pad level, low center of gravity and is patient. He averaged 123.6 yards per game over the last three seasons and produced 113 explosive plays (runs of 12 yards or more) in four seasons were second-most in college football. He's a great value pick in this draft for a team that wants to address other needs earlier on.

Per his agent Mike McCartney, former Bucs quarterback Josh McCown has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Jets.

A source tells ESPN's Field Yates that kicker John Lunsford has been waived. He was expendable now that the Bucs have Nick Folk challenging Roberto Aguayo for the kicking job.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

I'm told that Toledo tight end Michael Roberts has a private workout scheduled with the Bucs. He's 6-foot-4, 261 pounds and had 16 touchdown catches in 2016, more than any other tight end in college football. Still waiting on his official 40 time from his pro day today, but hearing he was able to shave some time off of the 4.86 from Indy.
