Buccaneers Place DB David Rivers On IR After Clearing Waivers


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed DB David Rivers on injured reserve Thursday after clearing waivers.

Rivers, 24, originally signed on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State in 2017. He lasted just a month in Green Bay before catching on with the Jets a month later.

The Buccaneers signed him to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular season and he later had a short stint with the Dolphins before returning to Tampa Bay.

During his college career at Youngstown State, Rivers recorded 45 tackles, one sack, 3.5 tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, and an interception over the course of 25 games.
