Buccaneers Waive CB David Rivers


The Tampa Buccaneers announced Friday that they’ve placed CB David Rivers on waivers. 

The Bucs needed to create a roster spot to make room for DT Ndamukong Suh, who agreed to a one-year contract worth up to $10 million.

Rivers, 24, originally signed on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State in 2017. He lasted just a month in Green Bay before catching on with the Jets.

The Buccaneers signed him to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular season and he later had a short stint with the Dolphins before returning to Tampa Bay. Rivers was waived from injured reserve during the preseason last year before re-signing with the Buccaneers midseason.

In 2018, Rivers appeared in two games for the Buccaneers but did not record a statistic. 

During his college career at Youngstown State, Rivers recorded 45 tackles, one sack, 3.5 tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, and an interception over the course of 25 games.
