Buccaneers Promote CB David Rivers, Sign TE Donnie Ernsberger To P-Squad


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Wednesday that they’ve promoted CB David Rivers to their active roster and signed TE Donnie Ernsberger to their practice squad.

Here’s the Buccaneers updated practice squad:

  1. OL Cole Boozer
  2. TE Tanner Hudson
  3. DL Jeremiah Ledbetter
  4. LB Eric Nzeocha (International)
  5. DE Patrick O’Connor
  6. WR Bobo Wilson
  7. OT Ruben Holcomb
  8. WR Bernard Reedy
  9. RB Ralph Webb
  10. DE Demone Harris
  11. TE Donnie Ernsberger

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. Rivers was waived from injured reserve during the preseason before signing on to the Bucs’ practice squad in October.

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.
