Godwin Igwebuike: Waived by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived Igwebuike on Friday.

Igwebuike was considered a long shot at landing on the Eagles' final 53-man roster, and he has now been been let go early. After going undrafted in 2018, he ended up playing six games between the Buccaneers and 49ers, but only on special teams. He will likely need to play a similar role elsewhere if he finds a new landing spot.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles claimed Igwebuike off waivers from the 49ers on Tuesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Igwebuike was an undrafted rookie in 2018 and played six games between the Buccaneers and 49ers, playing strictly on special teams. The Eagles already have their starters at safety, so Igwebuike will look to carve out a place on special teams in Philly as well.

49ers' Godwin Igwebuike: Claimed by San Fran
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike was claimed off waivers by the 49ers on Tuesday.

Igwebuike was waived by the Buccaneers on Monday after being promoted from the team's practice squad earlier this month. He recorded one tackle as he played in one of two games while on the team. The 24-year-old brings some much needed depth to the safety spot with Jimmie Ward (forearm) on injured reserve, and Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and D.J. Reed (heel) also nursing injuries.

Godwin Igwebuike: Let go by Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike was waived by the Buccaneers on Monday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Igwebuike was initially promoted to the Buccaneers' active roster on Nov. 16, but he's now parted ways with the team. In his lone game with Tampa Bay, Igwebuike played 12 special teams snaps and recorded one assisted tackle. The undrafted rookie will now be subjected to league waivers and will be free to search for a depth role if he goes unclaimed.

Buccaneers' Godwin Igwebuike: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers promoted Igwebuike from their practice squad Friday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Igwebuike was promoted to the 53-man roster following Tampa Bay's decision to waive Demone Harris. The undrafted free agent will offer the Buccaneers' secondary some much-needed depth in the absence of starting strong safety Justin Evans (toe), who is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Giants.
