Second-year wide receiver Jonathan Krause is back with the Bucs after Tampa Bay signed him to the practice squad Wednesday.
Krause spent the offseason and all of preseason with the Bucs before being waived Sept. 3. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound receiver played in all four preseason games, making four catches for 73 yards. He also returned three punts for an average of 13.7 yards.
Other than Tampa Bay, Krause has spent time with the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers. He was waived by the Chargers on Sept. 22.
The Bucs now have their practice squad filled up again with 10 players. Krause joins C Josh Allen, WR Jeremy Butler, DT Rodney Coe, CB Javien Elliott, C Ben Gottschalk, S Isaiah Johnson, LB Cameron Lynch, DE Ryan Russell and TE Danny Vitale.
We may have been thin at the WR position before the season but we are stocked up now when and if Louis Murphy is activated off of PUP and Cecil Short gets over his hammy.
Wonder here is if and when that happens and Jackson continues his sub par play if the Bucs will keep him on the roster. Probably so because even if they jettison him they are liable for his salary.
Not sure if any of these second tier WR’s are the answer, but from my vantage point, Jackson just doesn’t look like the same guy he was in 2014. The staff just might have to make a hard decision if things don’t improve soon. Regardless, Jackson’s contract and career will likely end this season. It was good while it lasted.
