Waived NFL player reporting to Red Sox spring training

Linebacker Brandon Magee was placed on waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wednesday, and now he’s headed to Boston Red Sox spring training… to play.

The Red Sox confirmed Wednesday that Magee is reporting to the team’s minor league complex in Fort Myers, Fla.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity they gave me at the time. Right now, I’m focused on spring training,” Magee told the Tampa Bay Times.

Magee first pursued a baseball career when he participated in spring training with the Red Sox in 2014.

Magee played in nine games for Tampa Bay in 2014, tallying one tackle on defense and six on special teams.

Magee first joined the Bucs just before last year’s training camp. He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State in 2013, signing with the Dallas Cowboys.

Magee was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns and appeared in eight games as a rookie, playing primarily on special teams. The Browns waived him in July.

He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008.
