Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Waived by Bucs on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krause will not make the Bucs' 53-man roster, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old receiver certainly had his moments in camp and early in preseason, but ultimately didn't do enough to beat out Evan Spencer and special-teams ace Russell Shepard for the final two spots on the receiver depth chart. Krause was also given a long look at punt returner and his ability to contribute at that position, along with solid measurables, should afford him additional opportunities around the league.

Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Lackluster showing in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Krause secured one of four targets for 17 yards in Wednesday's 20-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.

The third-year receiver didn't exactly have the best weather within which to make a final pitch for a roster spot and was only able to secure a quarter of his targets in the sloppy conditions. Krause was impressive early in camp and also turned a two-catch, 50-yard game against the Jaguars in the second week of preseason. That contest was also the last in which Krause received an opportunity in the punt return rotation, gaining 18 yards on his sole runback. Due to fellow wideout Bernard Reedy receiving the bulk of returner reps over the last two weeks, Krause has been primarily relegated to trying to work his way onto the final roster through his receiving exploits, and didn't quite deliver in that capacity Wednesday.

Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Prospects not looking good heading into preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krause's chances to claim one of the Bucs' final receiver spots appear dim heading into the preseason finale versus Washington, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old had impressed early in camp and amassed three catches for 56 yards over the first two exhibition games, but his participation was notably reduced in last Friday's victory over the Browns. Krause received only nine snaps in that contest and was not targeted, while also being shut out of the punt return rotation. He figures to have some extended opportunity to showcase his skills in Wednesday night's finale versus the Redskins with the top receiving trio of Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries expected to play sparingly, if at all.

Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Leads all receivers in yardage in Saturday preseason victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Krause secured two of his three targets for 50 yards in Saturday's 27-21 preseason victory over the Jaguars. He also gained 18 yards on his sole punt return.

The third-year receiver followed up a string of impressive training camp practices with an impressive showing, including a pretty 41-yard connection with third-string QB Ryan Griffin late in the fourth quarter. Krause has opened some eyes in the battle for a backup receiver spot over the first three weeks of camp, while also making a strong case for the open punt return job. His fate, like that of fellow competitors for a spot on the crowded wide receiver depth chart, appears destined to be decided over the final two preseason contests.

Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Impressing teammates, coaches during first two weeks of camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Krause has made a significant impression on both coaches and teammates during his first two weeks with the Bucs, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old has seemingly made head-turning plays in almost every practice, making a strong case for one of the Bucs' hotly-contested receiver spots. Krause has also been one of several players auditioning for the punt returner job and will get his first chance to make an impression in preseason action Thursday against the team he was most recently with, the Eagles. Although he had a solid college career at Vanderbilt, Krause's early success has taken even his main boss by surprise. "I didn't even know that guy's name," coach Dirk Koetter said last week, "and [general manager] Jason [Licht] and those guys pulled him off the waiver wire, talked about his history. For a kid that missed all of OTAs and just came out here, he's doing well. He's definitely in the mix."
