Dare Ogunbowale was cut by the Buccaneers as a result of the overcrowded backfield. The Bucs signed Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy to one year deals and they drafted Ke’Shawn Vaughn in the third round.
Ogunbowale, who played nearly 700 snaps last season between offense and special teams, is a casualty of the Bucs’ sudden collection of running backs. Tampa Bay drafted rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn in the third round in April. In August, it signed 34-year-old LeSean McCoy.
Former Bucs running back Dare Ogunbowale is headed to Las Vegas and will be joining the Raiders. Could be just to the practice squad but could join the 53-man roster instead. First of Bucs' cuts to move on to another NFL team.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) September 6, 2020
As reported by multiple outlets, including SB Nation’s Big Cat Nation, the Jags have officially added Ogunbowale to their active roster. After the Jags released Fournette, and Ryquell Armstead was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, their backfield is now depleted. The former Bucs running back should do very well for them in a depth role and special teams.
