Biggs: Bucs plunder Dallas' practice squad for CB Mickens

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have signed cornerback Mike Mickens off the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys. Mickens was a seventh-round draft pick by Dallas after setting a school record with 14 interceptions during his college career at Cincinnati.

Mickens might have been a higher draft pick had he not suffered a knee injury late in his senior season.

To make room for him, the Bucs released cornerback Marcus McCauley, who was signed late last month.
