      Brown is signing with the Panthers,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

      Analysis: Released by the Chiefs last week, Brown will likely still need to fight for a spot on Carolina's final roster. The 29-year-old safety has made 20 starts in 55 career NFL appearances, but he's never been able to match the promise of his eight-interception 2012 campaign with the Giants.

      Spencer (knee) remains a contender for one of the Bucs' final receiver spots, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Analysis: The 23-year-old missed last Friday's game against the Browns with a knee injury suffered against the Jaguars the previous week, but has been back on the practice field this week. Spencer figures to receive plenty of reps in Wednesday night's preseason finale as the Bucs attempt to finalize the back end of their wide receiver corps. The former Buckeye has had a quiet showing through the two exhibition contests he has participated in, securing just two of six targets for 27 yards.

      Glennon is a main reason that head coach Dirk Koetter expresses optimism about the team's depth at quarterback, and is thus unlikely to be dealt heading into his contract year this season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Analysis: The four-year veteran appears destined for another season of holding the clipboard behind Jameis Winston, unless a quarterback-needy team comes calling with an offer the Bucs can't refuse. One such squad could conceivably be the Vikings, whose fans voted for Glennon as their top choice to replace the fallen Teddy Bridgewater (knee) in an online poll late Tuesday as reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. However, Koetter appears to value the insurance policy of having a backup in Glennon who started 18 games in 2013-14, particularly with likely third-string signal-caller Ryan Griffin having yet to take a regular-season snap in the NFL. With Glennon likely on the move next offseason to a potential starting opportunity elsewhere, his presence on the roster in 2016 would provide the Bucs with the luxury of grooming Griffin for one additional season.

      Krause's chances to claim one of the Bucs' final receiver spots appear dim heading into the preseason finale versus Washington, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Analysis: The 24-year-old had impressed early in camp and amassed three catches for 56 yards over the first two exhibition games, but his participation was notably reduced in last Friday's victory over the Browns. Krause received only nine snaps in that contest and was not targeted, while also being shut out of the punt return rotation. He figures to have some extended opportunity to showcase his skills in Wednesday night's finale versus the Redskins with the top receiving trio of Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries expected to play sparingly, if at all.

      James (rest) returned to practice Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

      Analysis: The fourth-year back was once again toiling away Tuesday in his quest to secure the third running back spot, a battle that figures to come down to Wednesday night's preseason finale against the Redskins. James will likely get a solid amount of work in a game that both Doug Martin and Charles Sims may take a seat for, leaving the former Miami Hurricane to display his wares alongside fellow candidates Peyton Barber and Russell Hansbrough. James does have the edge on that pair of candidates with respect to experience in head coach Dirk Koetter's system, having been on the Bucs' roster and practice squad for two separate stints last season, despite not receiving any carries.
