Seven athletes from five countries will showcase their talents in front of scouts from all 32 clubs at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training facility during the NFL International Player Pathway Pro Day on April 1.

Started in 2017, the International Player Pathway Program provides elite international athletes the opportunity to compete at the NFL level, improve their skills and possibly earn a spot on an NFL roster.

Participants will work out for scouts in hopes of being signed as a free agent or being selected for a 2019 practice squad position. Following the on-field workouts, clubs will be able to conduct informal interviews with the players.

Players not signed to free agent contracts will be eligible for an international player practice squad exemption on an AFC East team. The AFC East has been chosen at random as the division that receives a roster exemption for an eleventh practice squad member for the 2019 NFL season.
