The Bucs announced yesterday that they signed DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim away from Philadelphia’s practice squad and waived Frank Okam. A Buccaneer assistant had to run and tell John McCargo, who was already starting to clean out his locker.
Te’o-Nesheim (pronounced tuh-OH-NESS-ime) entered the league with the Philadelphia Eagles as a third-round pick (86th overall) in the 2010 Draft. In his rookie season, Te’o-Nesheim played in six regular season games and made one start, recording five tackles, one sack and one special teams tackle.
Third round picks shouldn’t be on the practice squad two years after being picked, so there’s something up here. He is supposed to be very versatile and play with a lot of effort, so maybe he’s just not that talented. Or maybe h’e sos winded from saying his name that he doesn’t have enough energy to play. Fun fact: Te’o-Nesheim broke Ron Holmes‘s record for sacks at Washington. If you’re not old enough to remember, Holmes was a Buccaneer first-round pick
