Dez Briscoe Waived By Tampa Bay Buccaneers

New, 1 comment

After a dynamic career at Kansas, wide receiver Dez Briscoe has had a rougher time finding a place to call home in the National Football League. Despite some impressive touchdown totals, Briscoe was released today by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a sweeping announcement of several roster changes. Given the change in regime and coaching staff, it was clear that many moves would continue to be made all throughout the offseason and preseason. Briscoe is just one of the latest along with defensive tackle Brian Price.

From the team's announcement, "The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have traded DT Brian Price to the Chicago Bears for an undisclosed 2013 draft pick, pending a physical. The team also announced that they have signed LB Thomas Williams to a two-year contract, as well as waived WR Dezmon Briscoe and DB Devin Holland."

Briscoe was a sixth round choice in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals after ending his career as the Jayhawks all time receiver with 3,240 receiving yards. He's been with the Bucs for the last two seasons.
