The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made their second roster move since the start of training camp, releasing a quarterback and bringing in another offensive lineman.
The team released a statement at 8:02 a.m. today announcing that 29-year-old quarterback Dan LeFevour has been let go and 25-year-old offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann will take his roster spot.
Per the team statement: Hauptmann (6-foot-3, 305-pounds) originally entered the league as a college free agent with the Cleveland Browns in 2013. In his NFL career, the Los Angeles native has spent time with Browns, Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. In 2013, Hauptmann spent 13 weeks on the Seahawks’ active roster, but was inactive for 10 games and did not play in three others. The Florida International product has been a part of two Super Bowl championship teams, winning Super Bowl XLVII with Seattle and Super Bowl XLIX with New England.
Hauptmann now gives Tampa Bay 16 offensive linemen on its training camp roster, including free-agent signing J.R. Sweezy, who started camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.
LeFevour entered the league in 2010 as a sixth-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals out of Central Michigan but has never posted any stats in an NFL game.

I know I’m being a smartass here, but isn’t it pretty normal for offensive linemen not to have any stats, aside for the rare fumble recovery or tackle after a turnover?
