Andrew DePaola: Unlikely to be healthy for start of 2017 season
DePaola (knee) is unlikely to be healthy for the start of the 2017 season, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
DePaola, who was one of the Buccaneers' restricted free agents, tore an ACL in Week 17 and did not receive a tender this offseason, presumably due to his current health concerns. Instead, the team signed longtime Bills long snapper Garrison Sanborn to take his place. While it appears DePaola's time in Tampa Bay is over, the soon-to-be 30-year-old could resurface elsewhere when he returns to full health.
