Buccaneers Promoting DE Ryan Russell To Active Roster

According to Greg Auman, the Buccaneers are promoting DE Ryan Russell from their practice squad to their active roster.

Russell, 24, is a former fifth-round pick by the Cowboys of the 2015 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year, $2,482,988 rookie deal and was set to make $525,000 this year before he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Cowboys later signed Russell to their practice squad only to cut him loose a few days later.

In 2015, Russell appeared in one game for the Cowboys.
