News Sports: Former Cal running back Patrick Laird signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday. Laird was an unrestricted free agent in the NFL where he played three seasons.
The Bucks had a gap in their roster after Kenjon Varner was injured from an ankle injury sustained in Saturday’s preseason game.
He was a walk-on in Cal, but was the Bears’ top rusher when he rushed for 1,127 yards in 2017 and gained 961 yards on the ground in 2018. He also finished the last two seasons combined. His 96 caught his pass.
The team has to reduce his 90-man roster to his 85-players by today (Tuesday, August 16).
