The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived cornerback Jude Adjei-Barimah with an injury designation. Taking his spot on the 91-man training camp roster is a familiar face: long-snapper Andrew DePaola.
DePaola handled the Buccaneers' long-snapping duties for the past three seasons, though he suffered a knee injury in the 2016 season finale. He became a free agent in the offseason when the team declined to extend a qualifying offer that would have made him a restricted free agent. In the meantime, Tampa Bay signed veteran long-snapper Garrison Sanborn, who had spent the previous nine seasons with the Buffalo Bills.
Adjei-Barimah played in 23 games with eight starts over the past two seasons for the Buccaneers. He also suffered a knee injury late in the 2016 campaign and was injured again at the beginning of training camp. He first joined the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in the summer of 2015. Adjei-Barimah's injury means the team's nickel-corner job comes down to a battle between Javien Elliott and Robert McClain.
