Add another #Bucs rookie running back on the reserve/COVID-19 list: Raymond Calais, a seventh-round pick from Louisiana-Lafayette.— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) July 31, 2020
Calais is the Buccaneers sixth round selection out of Louisiana-Lafayette. He brings real potential to the return game, and will have to miss a portion of training camp along with third round rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn
Also added to the Reserve/Covid-19 list is 2nd year running back Aca’Cedric Ware.

This makes yesterdays signing of LeSean McCoy more clear, as the team is hurting for depth at the running back position.
It also opens up the opportunity for bubble players such as Dare Ogunbowale to make the roster, as a quality pass catcher and blocker are slim on the waiver wire.
