The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have waived linebacker Brandon Magee. The rarely-utilized defender and special teams player didn’t take long to latch on with another team, indicating to the Tampa Bay Times that he was headed to spring training with the Boston Red Sox.
While not pursuing a career in the NFL, Magee is interested in trying in his hand at baseball as an outfielder. Magee played both football and baseball in college at Arizona State and was drafted by the Red Sox in 2012. He was with the Red Sox through spring training last year before joining the Bucs.
Magee played in nine games for the Buccaneers in 2014 before going on injured reserve in December. He tallied one tackle on defense and six on special teams.
