Allen Bradford claimed off waivers by the Seattle Seahawks

To make room for safety Tanard Jackson, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived running back Allen Bradford yesterday. They hoped to re-sign him to their practice squad today, but have missed out on that opportunity as the Seattle Seahawks have claimed the USC product per Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times.

Bradford was a sixth-round pick for the Bucs and the third 2011 draft pick to be waived this season, after S Ahmad Black and TE Daniel Hardy were waived after the preseason. Ahmad Black is currently on the Bucs' practice squad. 

With Allen Bradford gone, the Bucs have just two healthy running backs on the roster, as Legarrette Blount is injured and will almost certainly miss Sunday's game. Earnest Graham is expected to carry the load against the New Orleans Saints, while Kregg Lumpkin will be the backup. The Bucs do still have RB Mossis Madu on the practice squad, and it was suggested that he could be called up for Sunday's game. It seems that he will have to wait a while longer.
