The Buccaneers continue to fortify their offensive ranks.
The Bucs inked former Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard to a one-year deal Monday, per NFL Network.

Tom Brady and Bruce Arians both personally recruited Bernard, one of the NFL’s best receiving backs, after his release from Cincinnati. Another weapon for Brady and the Super Bowl champs.
Bernard was reportedly personally recruited by head coach Bruce Arians and Tom Brady.
Bernard has spent his entire career with the Bengals since being drafted in 2013, earning a reputation as one of the NFL's top receiving backs.
For a Buccaneers team with two road graders in Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette at running back, Bernard will provide an added dimension to Tampa Bay's offensive attack.
This isn't a good sign for last year's third-round pick Ke'Shawn Vaughn, who struggled in his rookie year.
