On Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived third-year linebacker Brandon Magee, who first joined the team just before last year's training camp.
Magee first entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State in 2013, signing with the Dallas Cowboys. He ended up with the Cleveland Browns as an early-September waiver claim and appeared in eight games as a rookie, playing primarily on special teams. The Browns waived him in July of 2014 and the Bucs put in a claim. He started the 2014 season on Tampa Bay's practice squad but was promoted to the active roster in mid-September.
Magee appeared in nine games for the Buccaneers, contributing nine tackles on special teams and one additional stop on defense. A pectoral injury suffered against the Detroit Lions in Week 14 brought his season to a premature end.
Magee has also pursued a baseball career, most recently participating in extended spring training with the Boston Red Sox in 2014. He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008.
