J.J. Howland: Waived by Tampa Bay

The Yale product admittedly is fighting an uphill battle for a roster spot with Kyle Rudolph, Cameron Brate and Cade Otton seemingly locked into the top three slots at tight end, with that potentially being the maximum number of players the team keeps at the position. For the moment, Greg Auman of The Athletic projects Howland will be a candidate for the practice squad if he continues to impress in the final two exhibitions.... See More ... See Less
