Giants' Bobby Rainey: Joins Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bobby Rainey has signed with the New York Giants , reports.

Rainey played in all 16 games for the Buccaneers last season, with the vast majority of his contributions coming on special teams as a kick and punt returner. Although he played well at running back for the Bucs' league-worst 2014 team, Rainey's role with the Giants will likely be rooted in special teams work, with his presence simply providing depth in the backfield.

Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey: Nets no yards on returns, has fumble in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Rainey did not net any yards on his sole punt return and also lost a fumble in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers.

The fourth-year pro had a rough afternoon by fumbling on his only punt return, a mistake the Panthers would eventually convert into an early second-half touchdown. Rainey lost the ball at the Buccaneers' 22-yard line after having gained five yards, leading to a recovery and three-yard return by the Panthers' Joe Webb. Although he ranked ninth in the NFL with 9.9 yards per punt return and averaged a solid 24.7 yards on 19 kickoff run backs, Rainey did cough up the ball a total of seven times (recovering six) in 2015. He also was used sparingly from scrimmage after having totaled 938 yards rushing and 342 through the air in his first two seasons in Tampa. The 26-year-old only received eight total touches in 2015, largely as a result of Doug Martin's participation in all 16 games and Charles Sims' impressive emergence as the pass-catching back. Having only signed a one-year restricted free agent tender with the Bucs prior to the 2015 season, Rainey heads into the offseason with uncertain prospects for the 2016 campaign.

Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey: Nets zero yards on two punt returns, fumbles twice in Week 16 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Rainey did not net any yards on two punt returns, fumbling twice but recovering both.

It was an unusual afternoon for Rainey, who yielded a kickoff return to rookie Donteea Dye and muffed back-to-back punts in the third quarter as well. Rainey actually gained three yards after recovering the first muff, but those were negated by a holding penalty on Alterraun Verner. Although he was unable to add to his impressive 2015 return totals Sunday, Rainey has already amassed 757 combined yards in kickoff and punt runbacks this season.

Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey: Gains 38 yards on two kickoff returns in Week 15 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Rainey tallied 38 yards on two kickoff returns in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams.

Rainey failed to log any punt returns for the second straight week, and posted two unspectacular kickoff runbacks. The special-teamer nevertheless remains one of the more solid returners in the league, and does an above-average job of setting up the Bucs offense in a favorable position week-to-week.

Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey: Gains 31 yards on one kickoff return in Week 14 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bobby Rainey gained 31 yards on one kickoff return in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints, and did not log any punt returns.

The Bucs' special teams maven turned in one of his typically solid kickoff runbacks in what was his only opportunity with the ball in Week 14, as he notably failed to log any punt returns for the first time all season. Rainey remains one of the top returners in the league, and will get his next opportunity to shine in Thursday night's road tilt against the Rams.
