Buccaneers and former Raiders defensive end Karl Nasib have reached an agreement on a one-year deal , according to ESPN’s Adam Sheft. The value of the deal is unclear.
Nassib became the first active NFL player to declare gay in June 2021. He then donated $100,000 to the Trevor Project, an organization dedicated to crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth. He repeated that donation in June.
The 29-year-old was selected by the Browns in the third round of Penn State’s 2016 NFL draft. He spent the first two years of his career in Cleveland before being cut in September ’18. Tampa Bay picked him up shortly after, and he appeared in 15 games in ’18 with career-high sacks (6.5) and tackles (12).
He signed a three-year deal with the Raiders in 2020 but was released in March. Last season, he appeared in 13 games off the bench with 21 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
