Buccaneers Waive DB Maurice Fleming From I.R. With Settlement

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially waived DB Maurice Fleming from injured reserve with a settlement on Friday.

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.

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.
