Bucs Re-Sign Cody Riggs to Practice Squad

The Buccaneers made another change to their 11-man practice squad on Wednesday, bringing back CB Cody Riggs and releasing RB Dare Ogunbowale


The injuries that have caused a recent shakeup on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' active roster have also led to changes on the team's practice squad. On Wednesday the Buccaneers made another move on that 11-man unit, re-signing cornerback Cody Riggs and releasing running back Dare Ogunbowale.

That's the Bucs' second practice squad move in two days. On Tuesday, the team filled the open spot created by last Saturday's promotion of offensive lineman Mike Liedtke by re-signing defensive end Sterling Bailey.

This is the second time that Riggs has been a late-season addition to the Buccaneers' practice squad. He first came to Tampa last November, in time to spend the last five weeks on that crew, after which he was signed to a reserve/futures contract for 2017. Riggs then went to training camp with the Buccaneers this past summer, playing in all four preseason games and contributing four tackles. He was waived on September 3.

Riggs (5-9, 187) first entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in 2015 with the Tennessee Titans. He made the Titans' team as a rookie and was on and off the active roster in 2016, appearing in a total of 14 games with seen tackles, two passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Ogunbowale spent just one week on Tampa Bay's practice squad, signing last Wednesday. He played his college football at Wisconsin and logged time on the Houston Texans' practice squad before coming to Tampa.
