Buccaneers Sign RB Russell Hansbrough & LB Josh Keyes To P.S., Waive WR Jonathan Krause


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced they have signed RB Russell Hansbrough and LB Josh Keyes to their practice squad and waived WR Jonathan Krause in a corresponding move.

Keyes, 23, signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College back in 2015 and bounced on and off the team’s practice squad.

He was unable to make the team coming out off the preseason but was signed to their practice squad a few days afterward. He also had a brief stint on the Chiefs’ practice squad before returning to Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers signed Keyes to their practice squad coming out of the preseason and later promoted him to their active roster. This is the second time Keyes has been cut and signed to the team in less than a week.

This season, Keyes has been active for four games and recorded three tackles.

Hansbrough, 22, signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri. He was one of the team’s final roster cuts before signing onto their practice squad.

In fact, Tampa Bay waived Hansbrough a few weeks ago, making this his second time joining the team’s practice squad. He has yet to appear during an NFL game.

During his four-year college career, Hansbrough recorded 467 rushing attempts for 2,344 yards (5.0 YPC) and 15 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 30 receptions for 128  receiving yards (4.3 YPC).
