Buccaneers Signing CB Maurice Fleming To Practice Squad, Releasing CB David Rivers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing CB Maurice Fleming to their practice squad on Tuesday and releasing CB David Rivers from the unit, according to Greg Auman.

The Buccaneers’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. LB Riley Bullough
  2. OL Mike Liedtke
  3. LB Eric Nzeocha (International)
  4. WR Bobo Wilson
  5. DT Channing Ward
  6. FB Alan Cross
  7. S Isaiah Johnson

Fleming, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia back in May. He stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract.

The Buccaneers waived Fleming with an injury designation and later placed him on injured reserve after clearing waivers. However, he was waived from I.R. with a settlement soon after.

During his college career, Fleming recorded 78 tackles, two tackles for a loss, an interception, two forced fumbles, a recovery and 15 pass defenses over the course of 27 games.
