Bucs waive QB LeFevour, sign OL Caylin Hauptmann
Shoring up their offensive line depth while rookie Caleb Benenoch is sidelined with an ankle injury, the Bucs on Tuesday agreed to terms with offensive tackle Caylin Hauptmann, and waived No. 4 quarterback Dan LeFevour to make room.
LeFevour, 29, has never played in the NFL, but played for Bucs quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian when both were at Central Michigan. There were limited reps in practice for him, and his departure leaves the Bucs with three quarterbacks: starter Jameis Winston and backups Mike Glennon and Ryan Griffin. Tampa Bay kept all three on the 53-man roster all season last year, even though Glennon didn't take a snap and Griffin was inactive each week.
Hauptman, 25, is 6 foot 3 and 305 pounds and had worked out for the Bucs last week when they chose to sign rookie Joel Hale. He played at Florida International and has spent time in preseason and on practice squads with the Browns, Seahawks and Patriots but would face long odds to stick with the Bucs beyond the preseason.
