Bucs sign RB Bobby Rainey off waivers from Cleveland (unconfirmed)

New, comments

Unconfirmed reports are surfacing that the Buccaneers have claimed the former Hilltopper. Rainey went undrafted in 2012 but has spent time on both Baltimore and Cleveland's rosters. Rainey will add depth in the absence of Doug Martin, who may or may not be headed to I.R. depending on who you talk to.

Looks like Rainey is at least headed this way according to his twitter account.

As a Western Kentucky alum myself, I'm pretty excited about this. I felt Rainey should have been taken in fifth or sixth round that season, and wanted the Bucs to draft him. Very excited if this turns out to be true.
