The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have placed wide receiver Louis Murphy and guard J.R. Sweezy on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform List, safety Elijah Shumate on the Active/Non-Football Injury List and signed offensive lineman Joel Hale.
Hale (6-4, 295), who spent rookie mini-camp with the Buccaneers this past offseason on a tryout basis, played collegiately at Ohio State, working primarily on the defensive line. The Greenwood, Indiana, native played in 46 games for Ohio State.
The team also announced that offensive lineman Garrett Gilkey has been waived with a failed physical.
