Tampa Bay waived Dafney (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Less than a week after being moved to injured reserve, Dafney is now slated to become a free agent and will be able to sign with a team once he proves his health. Through 15 games in the NFL, the 26-year-old tight end has logged four catches for 60 yards and a touchdown.

Moved to IR

Dafney (undisclosed) reverted to the Buccaneers' injured reserve Wednesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Dafney was waived with an indury designation Tuesday and subsequently went unclaimed. He is now facing the possibility of missing the entire 2023 campaign, unless if both he and Tampa Bay can reach an injury settlement at some point.

Waived with injury

The Buccaneers waived/injured Dafney (undisclosed) on Tuesday, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

Dafney managed to bring in both of his targets for 22 yards in Tampa Bay's preseason finale, but he's now nursing an undisclosed injury. If he clears waivers, he'll be set to revert to the Buccaneer's IR list.

Pair of grabs in preseason finale

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-27

Dafney secured both targets for 22 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens on Saturday night.

Dafney checked in second among the Buccaneers' tight ends with 21 snaps while tying for the position lead in receptions and setting the pace in receiving yards. The 26-year-old had a serviceable preseason relative to opportunity, posting a 4-33 line on five targets. However, with David Wells seemingly enjoying the inside track to the No. 3 tight end role after recording a touchdown Saturday night, Dafney may have to beat out rookie fifth-round pick Payne Durham to garner a spot on the final roster.

Signs future deal with Bucs

Dafney signed a reserve/future contract with the Buccaneers on Monday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Dafney appeared in 15 games for the Packers between the 2020 and 2021 seasons. He'll try to carve out a depth role in a Buccaneers tight end room that includes 2022 draft picks Cade Otton (fourth round) and Ko Kieft (sixth round).

Time up on practice squad

The Colts cut Dafney from the practice squad Thursday.

Dafney will be replaced by Keke Coutee on Indianapolis' practice squad. The tight end logged 10 appearances with Green Bay during the 2021 campaign, but he hasn't appeared in a single contest this season.
