The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have claimed wide receiver Jonathan Krause off waivers, according to Dov Kleiman. The Bucs could do with some extra depth at wide receiver as they head into training camp, and Krause’s speed will add an extra dimension.
Jonathan Krause entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and has spent time with the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and New Englant Patriots. He played in two games for the Eagles last year, catching two passes for 11 yards.
The 5’11, 190 lbs. receiver played his college football at Vanderbilt, and ran a blazing 4.37-second 40-yard dash at his 2014 pro day. If he can bring that kind of speed to the Bucs’ roster, and couple it with actually catching balls, there may be a place for him with the Bucs — though that is more likely to be on the practice squad than the 53-man roster, given the team’s stiff competition at the bottom of that position group.
