Jhajuan Seales is getting a second chance to make an NFL team.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday signed Seales to their 90-man roster, as part of the team’s first transactions in training camp. Seales, who graduated from Port Arthur Memorial in 2012, was first picked up by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent shortly after the NFL Draft but was waived a month later, according to the Buccaneers.

The Bucs also signed fourth-year safety Marqueston Huff, a former Tennessee Titan and Baltimore Raven from the University of Tennessee.
