On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed long-snapper Dax Dellenbach to a reserve/futures contract for the 2017 season. He is the 15th player the team has added to its 2017 roster since the end of the 2016 season.
It won't be Dellenbach's first time at One Buccaneer Place; he took part in last year's rookie mini-camp in May on a tryout contract. Since finishing up his collegiate career at Florida State in 2012, Dellenbach has had tryouts with the Buccaneers, the Cleveland Browns and the Tennessee Titans.
Andrew DePaola has handled Tampa Bay's long-snapping duties for all 48 games over the past three seasons. However, DePaola is a pending unrestricted free agent and is also recovering from a knee injury suffered in the 2016 season finale.
Dellenbach, played his prep ball in Coconut Creek, Florida and began his collegiate career at Auburn in 2008 and 2009. After transferring to Florida State he took over the long-snapping duties in 2010 and was awarded a scholarship prior to the 2011 season.
