The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Monday that they’ve released DT Jerel Worthy.
Worthy, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2012. However, he lasted just two years in Green Bay and sustained a serious knee. Upon returning, the Packers traded him to the Patriots for a conditional draft pick, but he wound up being cut loose at the start of the 2014 season.
Worthy had had brief stints with the Chiefs and Lions before signing on with the Bills during the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to cut Worthy during the 2017 season.
Worthy signed on with the Buccaneers during the preseason.
In 2018, Worthy has appeared in four games and recorded three tackles and no sacks for the Buccaneers.
