The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have waived (injured) wide receiver Travis Jonsen on Monday. Jonsen, who was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Montana State, was apparently injured his quadriceps during the team’s workouts after training camp began.
The Bucs re-signed Jaydon Mickens, who was released last week, on Sunday, likely due to Jonsen’s injury. Jonsen is not eligible to return to the team via the practice squad – or the active roster – until Week 5 of the regular season.
The Bucs currently have 11 receivers on their camp roster right now, including Pro Bowlers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, holdovers Scotty Miller, Justin Watson, Bryant Mitchell, Cyril Grayson, John Franklin, and Tyler Johnson, this year’s fifth-round draft pick, in addition to undrafted free agents Josh Pearson and John Hurst. Tampa Bay will likely keep five or six receivers on the team’s 53-man roster.
