Buccaneers Sign DL Jerel Worthy, Waive/Injured LB Shaheed Salmon


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Monday that they’ve signed DL Jerel Worthy to a contract and waived LB Shaheed Salmon with an injury designation.

Should Salmon clear waivers tomorrow, he would revert to the Buccaneers’ injured serve list.

Worthy, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2012. However, he lasted just two years in Green Bay and sustained a serious knee. Upon returning, the Packers traded him to the Patriots for a conditional draft pick, but he wound up being cut loose at the start of the 2014 season.

Worthy had had brief stints with the Chiefs and Lions before signing on with the Bills during the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to cut Worthy during the 2017 season.

In 2017, Worthy has appeared in five games for the Bills and recorded five tackles and no sacks.
