The Bucs are waiving punter Sterling Hofrichter to make room for new tight end Bug Howard. Rookie Jake Camarda has the punting job, but we knew that as soon as he was drafted.

Bug Howard played for the Atlanta Legends in the Alliance of American Football and for the USFL’s Philadelphia Stars.The Buccaneers are the 7th NFL team he’s played for. This is obviously a camp/practice squad type signing at best.
