Bucs place Jeff Demps on IR, claim Bradley McDougald off waivers

The Buccaneers waited a long time for Jeff Demps to finish with his track commitments and turn his attention back to the football field.

Once Demps arrived, they didn’t get much time to see what he could do before his season came to a close. The Buccaneers placed Demps on injured reserve Wednesday, a few weeks after Demps had groin surgery.

Demps played just two games with the Bucs, serving as a running back and kick returner. He ran once for 14 yards, caught three passes for 21 yards and returned four kicks for 93 yards in his brief time with the team. Demps has world class speed, but he hasn’t been on the football field enough with either the Buccaneers or the Patriots to know if that’s enough to make him a viable threat.

The Buccaneers filled Demps’ roster spot by claiming safety Bradley McDougald off of waivers from the Chiefs. McDougald played one game for the Chiefs and was waived on Tuesday when the team activated defensive back Sanders Commings from his temporary stay on injured reserve.

    I think its fair to say that Belichick won this Blount-for-Demps trade scenario.

    Seems like Demps just uses NFL money to fund his track career.

    That LeGarrette Blount trade is looking pretty good right about now…

    Actually, the Bucs, who haven’t won much of anything on or off the field this season, won the Blount trade hands down. Let’s not forget that Demps was a throw in to the original trade, which was Blount for the draft picked used to select Mike James, the young RB who ran all over the Seahawks last week.

    I knew this guy would end up a real winner
