Former 1st-rounder hasn't played since 2000
TAMPA, Fla. -- Wide receiver Sylvester Morris, a one-time first-round draft pick of Kansas City, signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, three seasons after he caught his last pass.
Taken by the Chiefs in the 2000 NFL Draft, Morris caught 48 passes for 678 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie. However, knee and hip injuries have sidelined the former Jackson State standout over the past three seasons.
Morris is the sixth receiver the Bucs have signed this offseason.
