According to Howard Balzer, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought in six players for tryouts on Tuesday including QB Joel Stave.
The full list of tryouts for the Buccaneers includes:
- CB Marcus Burley
- CB Jarnor Jones
- DE Patrick Gamble
- WR Devin Lucien
- TE Beau Sandland
- QB Joel Stave
Stave, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, waived at the start of the regular season before signing on to the Vikings’ practice squad.
The Vikings cut Stave loose back in November of last year and he later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad after clearing waivers. Stave didn’t last long with the Seahawks but was eventually signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad where he finished out the season.
Kansas City elected to move on from Stave as they cut their roster down to 53 players. The Redskins signed him to their practice squad but released him from the unit.
The Raiders brought him in for a workout last week but did not sign him to a contract.
During his four-year college career, Stave threw for 7,635 yards while completing 59.5 percent of his passes to go along with 48 touchdowns and 37 interceptions.
