The Buccaneers have signed veteran snapper Jeremy Cain, while the Patriots have added Charley Hughlett in the past few days. Cain has prior experience with Bucs coach Lovie Smith from his time with the Bears. Cain has also snapped in the regular season for the Titans and Jaguars and been in training camp with the Redskins and Eagles. Cain will compete with client Patrick Scales for the snapping job and likely marks the end of the line with the Bucs for Andrew Economos, who has handled the snaps in Tampa Bay since 2006.
Hughlett, who was in camp with the Cowboys in 2012 and 2013, will challenge Danny Aiken in New England. Aiken recently signed a one-year deal to remain with the Patriots.
