DePaola was released by the Bucs on Friday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
DePaolo is a vested veteran who isn't subject to the waiver wire. Thus, he's immediately eligible to sign with another team.
DePaola (knee) signed with the Bucs on Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
DePaola will compete for long-snapping duties with Garrison Sanborn, but it'll be intersting to see if he's going to be healthy enough for Week 1 anyways since he's currently recovering from an ACL tear.
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.
