- The Buccaneers announced that they waived LB Steven Jenkins and OT Emmett Cleary on Tuesday.
Gettis, 26, was a sixth-round pick of the Panthers back in 2010. He spent four years with Carolina and appeared in a total of 17 games during this time. However, Gettis hasn’t played in a game since 2012 and has dealt with some injuries over the course of his NFL career.
Tampa Bay has a lot of receivers on their roster right now, so Gettis will be competing with a group that consists of: Louis Murphy, Lavelle Hawkins, Chris Owusu, Eric Page, Skye Dawson, Russell Shepard, Tommy Streeter, Solomon Patton and Quintin Payton.
