The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have signed punter Jacob Schum and waived safety Derrick Wells.
                                                                                                                                       
Schum (5-11, 211) originally entered the league as a college free agent out of Buffalo with the Cleveland Browns in 2013, before being waived that offseason. Schum spent the 2014 offseason between the Buccaneers and the New York Jets and spent time on Tampa Bay’s practice squad last season. He spent the 2015 offseason and preseason with the Jets, before being waived on August 18.
                                                                       
In two preseason games this year, Schum punted four times for 205 yards (51.3 avg.), with one downed inside the 20. The Hamburg, New York native will wear No. 5 for Tampa Bay.
