Buccaneers Sign OT Caylin Hauptmann, Waive QB Dan LeFevour

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing OT Caylin Hauptmann to a contract on Tuesday, according to Jenna Laine.

  • The Bucs also placed QB Dan LeFevour on waivers Tuesday, according to Greg Auman.

Tampa Bay actually brought Hauptmann in for a few workouts, so he was clearly on their radar as a potential offensive line addition.

Hauptmann, 25, originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Florida International back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in Cleveland before he was later signed off of their practice squad by the Seahawks.

Seattle elected to cut him loose at the start of the 2014 season, but he was claimed off of waivers by the Browns. Hauptmann eventually caught on with the Patriots and was brought back on a future/reserve deal before being waived at the start of last year.

Hauptmann has yet to appear in an NFL game.

LeFevour, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Bears back in 2010. He lasted just a few months in Chicago before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Bengals.

Cincinnati cut LeFevour loose during the 2011 season. He later had a brief stint with the Colts before signing on with the Jaguars in at the end of the 2011 season.

The Buccaneers elected to sign him to a contract in April, which was his first opportunity with an NFL team since he was waived by the Jaguars at the start of the 2012 season.

LeFevour has yet to appear in an NFL game.
