Allen Bradford LB NYG Apr 05 '12
The Seahawks have decided to move Allen Bradford from running back to linebacker.
Bradford was a five-star linebacker recruit out of high school, but the USC coaching staff, led, not coincidentally, by Pete Carroll, quickly moved him to running back. Bradford was drafted in the sixth round by Tampa Bay in 2011, but saw only five carries before being waived and later claimed by his old coach. A special teams role is his best shot at a roster spot.

Seahawks signed RB Allen Bradford, TE John Nalbone, CB Coye Francies, DE John Graves, C Brent Osborne and S Jesse Hoffman to reserve/future contracts.
Bradford broke camp with the Bucs, but was limited to just one game and five carries despite a wave of injuries behind LeGarrette Blount in Tampa's backfield. Nalbone made two appearances for the Dolphins in 2010, but has zero career catches. Osborne, Hoffman, Graves and Francies are roster fillers.

Bucs waived RB Allen Bradford.
A highly surprising move since it was revealed Thursday that LeGarrette Blount's knee sprain could sideline him for the next two weeks. It's quite possible the Bucs are clearing a roster spot for a veteran running back. A sixth-round pick, Bradford will be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Bucs declared RB Allen Bradford, CB Anthony Gaitor, OT Demar Dotson, OT James Lee, FS Larry Asante, CB Myron Lewis, and WR Sammie Stroughter inactive for Week 2 against the Vikings.
The Bucs' three game-day backs are LeGarrette Blount, Earnest Graham, and Kregg Lumpkin. Look for Dezmon Briscoe to get a snaps bump with Stroughter out indefinitely after foot surgery, and Arrelious Benn coming off a rough opener.

Bucs declared RB Allen Bradford, TE Zach Pianalto, T Demar Dotson, G Derek Hardman, CB Myron Lewis, CB Anthony Gaitor and S Larry Asante inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
No surprises for the Bucs, who enter Week 1 as one of the healthier teams in the league. Both Earnest Graham and Kregg Lumpkin are active as complements to LeGarrette Blount. Aqib Talib is set to shadow Calvin Johnson while Ronde Barber monitors Nate Burleson.
