Former Clemson defensive lineman Tavaris Barnes has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a workout on Tuesday according to multiple reports.

In 2016, Barnes played for the Seattle Seahawks but didn't make the active roster during the season. In 2015, he made the New Orleans roster as an undrafted rookie free agent, playing in 12 games and making five tackles in 131 snaps.

During his Clemson career, Barnes had 64 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, 14 quarterback pressures, two pass breakups, one caused fumble and two recovered fumbles, including one for a touchdown, in 881 snaps over 47 games (four total starts).
