D’Cota Dixon has reportedly found a landing spot.
The former Wisconsin safety was one of 27 tryout players at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie minicamp this weekend and ended up being one of the four players they signed.

The Athletics Greg Auman confirmed the signing.
Dixon was a three-year starter for the Badgers, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors as a junior and third-team honors as a senior. Though he dealt with injuries throughout his time in Madison, he finished his career with 177 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and five interceptions.
The Florida native was also a force off the field, including winning the 2018 Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award.
Dixon joins three other former Badgers — running back Dare Ogunbowale, linebacker Jack Cichy and defensive lineman Beau Allen — with the Buccaneers.
