The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today signed tight end David Wells to the team's practice squad.
Wells (6-6, 260) most recently spent time with the Tennessee Titans during training camp before being added to the practice squad and then released on Sept. 2. He originally entered the league as a college free agent with the Dallas Cowboys in 2018. He has since spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs (2018-19), New England Patriots (2020-21), Atlanta Falcons (2021), Indianapolis Colts (2021) and Arizona Cardinals (2021-22) prior to signing with the Titans this past training camp.
Wells has appeared in three career games, with one start, all for the Arizona Cardinals in 2021. The Clovis, California, native was a two-time All-Mountain West selection at San Diego State (2013-17). He will wear No. 89 for Tampa Bay.
In addition, Tampa Bay released tight end JJ Howland from the practice squad.
