The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed punter Jacob Schum on Wednesday.

The 5-foot-11, 211-pound Schum 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 was on Tampa Bay’s practice squad last season. He spent the 2015 offseason and preseason with the Jets, before being waived on Aug. 18.

In two preseason games this year, Schum punted four times for a 51.3-yard average, with one downed inside the 20.

The Bucs also waived safety Derrick Wells, an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota.
