Buccaneers Place OL Ben Gottschalk On I.R. & Promote Two

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Tuesday that they’ve promoted OL Josh Allen and CB Javien Elliot to their active roster and placed OL Ben Gottschalk on injured reserve.

Gottschalk, 24, signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of SMU back in May of last year. He was unable to make Kansas City’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was later added to their practice squad.

After a brief stint with the Buccaneers, Gottschalk signed on with the 49ers in May of last year before he was waived during the preseason. The Buccaneers elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract this past January and later added him to their practice squad at the start of the season.

The Buccaneers promoted Gottschalk  a few weeks ago.

In 2016, Gottschalk has been active for two games for the Buccaneers.

White, 26, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech back in 2013. He spent a good amount of time on the Packers’ practice squad, but managed to make the 53-man roster last year.

However, White was unfortunately waived to make room for James Jones. He wasn’t out of a job for long, as the Giants signed him to their practice squad just a few days later.

The Giants brought White back on an exclusive rights deal back in April but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. He’s been on and off of the Jets’ practice squad since the start of the season.

In 2015, White appeared in 12 games for the Giants and recorded seven receptions for 88 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Riggs, 24, wound up signing on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame back in May of last year. He was able to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason last year but was unfortunately cut loose last week to make room for Josh Kline, who was claimed off of waivers.

Riggs has been on and off of the Titans’ practice squad this year.

In 2015, Riggs appeared in 11 games for the Titans and recorded 14 tackles, a forced fumble, a recovery and two pass defenses.
