The Buccaneers claimed defensive lineman Carl Nassib off waivers from the Browns, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Nassib, who became a star of Hard Knocks by offering financial advice to his teammates, was waived by the Browns on Sunday after they made some waiver claims of their own.

Nassib, 25, was a third-round pick of the Browns in 2016.

He appeared in all 16 games last season and had 30 regular-season appearances in his two seasons in Cleveland, with 15 starts. Last year, he started 12 games.

Nassib has 52 career tackles and 5.5 sacks in his career.
