Buccaneers Waive DE Channing Ward, Sign OL Jerry Ugokwe

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Wednesday that they’ve signed OL Jerry Ugokwe and waived DE Channing Ward with a non-football injury designation.

Ward, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Ole Miss back in 2016. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason during his rookie season but was waived a few months later.

Since then, Ward has been on and off of the Buccaneers’ practice squad.

In 2017, Ward appeared in one game for Tampa Bay but did not record a statistic.
