Buccaneers Sign Linebacker To Reserve/Futures Contract


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed linebacker J.J. Russell to a reserve/futures contract. As reported by Greg Auman of Fox Sports, Russell was cut Monday and cleared waivers.

What’s a Reserve/Futures Contract? It’s exactly the same as a regular active-roster contract, with the regular rules for minimum veteran salaries, cap charges, signing bonuses, etc. The only difference is that it doesn’t take effect until the start of the next League Year.
