Raheem Morris and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave up on the Chris Bryan experiment, cutting the inconsistent punter on Tuesday. To replace him, the Buccaneers signed Robert Malone on Wednesday.
Malone entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State with the Jacksonville Jaguars and spent a portion of the off-season with that team.
He was an All-Western Athletic Conference first-team selection as a senior, punting 44 times for a 45.2 yard average with 17 punts inside the 20 and 15 punts of 50 yards or more.
Here’s to hoping that Malone is able to help out the Bucacneers’ offense and defense with booming punts that the coverage units can cover consistently.
