Tampa Bay Buccaneers Promote OT Reid Fragel to Active Roster

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need help protecting No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston, and former Ohio State TE/OT Reid Fragel is the next man up.

Fragel came to Tampa earlier this year off waivers from the Atlanta Falcons. He made the initial 53-man roster before being waived and signed to the practice squad.

Entering Week 4, Fragel apparently has again proved his worth. The Buccs named the offensive tackle to their 53-man roster on Wednesday; the former Big Ten champion replaced waived running back Mike James.

The Buccaneers host the Carolina Panthers, an organization that features several Buckeye starters, on Sunday.

After stops in Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Atlanta... let's hope this is Fragel's time.
