Buccaneers Worked Out CB Josh Shaw & DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches


According to Howard Balzer, the Buccaneers brought in free agent DT Rakeem Nunez-Roches and CB Josh Shaw for tryouts last Friday.

Shaw, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2015. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.773 million contract and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season.

The Bengals waived him with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to the team’s injured reserve list. Cincinnati cut him loose soon after.

In 2017, Shaw appeared in all 16 games for the Bengals and recorded 36 tackles, no sacks or interceptions and three pass defenses.

Nunez-Roches, 24, is a former sixth-round pick out of Southern Miss by the Chiefs back in the 2014 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year rookie contract but wound up being waived and signed to the team’s practice squad.

The Chiefs eventually promoted him to their active roster and tendered him at the original-round level this offseason. However, Kansas City somewhat surprisingly waived Nunez-Roches a few weeks after he signed his restricted tender.

The Colts quickly claimed him off waivers back in May only to cut him loose as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

In 2017, Nunez-Roches appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 24 total tackles and 0.5 of a sack.
