Buccaneers Re-Sign LB Riley Bullough, Place LBs Kwon Alexander & Jack Cichy On IR

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially re-signed LB Riley Bullough to a contract on Monday.

This comes after the news that Tampa Bay Buccaneers has placed LBs Kwon Alexander and Jack Cichy on injured reserve with season-ending ACL tears.

Bullough, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State back in May. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Buccaneers cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.

The Buccaneers eventually promoted Bullough to their active roster. However, he was once again cut loose at the start of the 2018 regular season.

In 2017, Bullough appeared in three games for the Buccaneers and recorded two tackles.

Alexander, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2015. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2,758,320 contract and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season.

Alexander will be an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career next year.

In 2018, Alexander had appeared in six games and recorded 45 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles and two pass defenses.

Cichy, 22, was taken in the sixth round of this year’s draft by the Buccaneers. He agreed to a four-year, $2,605,376 that included a $145,376 signing bonus.

Cichy stands to make base salaries of $480,000 and $750,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Cichy appeared in six games for the Buccaneers and recorded four tackles and no sacks or interceptions.
