The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially signed nine players to their practice squad on Sunday including:
- RB Dare Ogunbowale
- WR Bobo Wilson
- TE Tanner Hudson
- OL Cole Boozer
- DE Pat O’Connor
- DE Demone Harris
- CB Javien Elliott
- S Godwin Igwebuik
- LB Eric Nzeocha (International)
Ogunbowale, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in May of last year. The Texans cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.
After being released by Houston, Ogunbowale had a brief stint with the Buccaneers before eventually signing on to the Redskins’ practice squad. The Redskins called him up a few weeks later only to cut him loose in March.
Ogunbowale signed on with the Buccaneers last month but was among their final roster cuts.
During his college career at Wisconsin, Ogunbowale rushed for 1,518 yards on 319 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with 60 receptions for 507 yards receiving and 15 total touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 40 games.
