Lucien, 25, is a former seventh-round pick by the Patriots out of Arizona State in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was in the first year of a four-year rookie contract when the Patriots decided to waive him and sign him to their practice squad.
New England re-signed him to a futures contract back in February but was eventually waived with an injury settlement at the start of the 2016 season. Lucien had brief stints on the Colts, Chiefs, and Texans’ practice squads before joining the Buccaneers.
Lucien returned to the Buccaneers on a futures contract this past January before he was waived a few months.
During his four-year college career, Lucien recorded 124 receptions for 1,826 yards receiving (14.7 YPC) and 12 touchdowns.
