Rams signed G Davin Joseph to a one-year contract.
Joseph went to two Pro Bowls as a Buc (2008, 2011), but tore his patellar tendon in 2012 and was among the worst guards in the NFL last season. He's been on the street generating little interest since getting released three months ago. It's a low-risk deal for the Rams, who will ask Joseph to compete at guard. If he regains his drive-blocking form, Rodger Saffold could kick out to right tackle. May 28 - 10:34 AM

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Rams are "set to sign" free agent OG Davin Joseph.

The Rams were linked to Joseph at the start of free agency, but ended up waiting over two months for his price to come down. Going on 31, Joseph would presumably be signed to start, meaning either No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson or Rodger Saffold would be kicked out to tackle.

Free agent OG Davin Joseph recently visited the Patriots.

It's Joseph's third-known visit since getting released by the Bucs on the eve of free agency, but first in nearly a month. Coming off a dreadful 2013, Joseph would just be a depth signing, though he could compete with RG Dan Connolly.

According to Bryan Broaddus of the team's website, the Cowboys will "not" sign free agent OG Davin Joseph.

The Cowboys hosted Joseph on April 16. They have a need at right guard, so the fact that Dallas won't be adding Joseph suggests his medicals may still be an issue. Joseph's performance tumbled in 2013 as he attempted to return from a 2012 patellar tendon tear. He's also drawn light interest from the Rams.

Free agent OG Davin Joseph is visiting the Cowboys.

Joseph visited the Rams over a month ago after getting his release from the Bucs. He's entering his age-31 season and had a disappointing 2013 after coming back from a torn patellar tendon. The Cowboys currently have Ronald Leary and Mackenzy Bernadeau penciled in at left and right guard, respectively.

The Rams are hosting OG Davin Joseph for a free agent visit.

St. Louis is getting desperate at guard after whiffing on Geoff Schwartz, losing Chris Williams to Buffalo, and seeing Rodger Saffold overpaid in Oakland. They're also in danger of losing Shelley Smith. Joseph struggled mightily in his 2013 return from a torn patellar tendon. He's entering his age-31 campaign.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins could be interested in free agent RG Davin Joseph.

Joseph was released by the Bucs over the weekend and has ties to new Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey. Miami needs help all over the offensive line. LT Branden Albert is set to sign with the Dolphins on Tuesday. He and C Mike Pouncey are the only locked in starters. Joseph will turn 30 during the season and may be damaged goods.

Bucs released RG Davin Joseph.

The move saves $6 million against the cap. The Bucs had been shopping Joseph but obviously could find no suitors for the overpaid guard. The former first-round pick has been a shell of his former self since returning from a 2012 patellar tendon tear. He'll likely find a soft market in free agency.
Mar 8 - 12:33 PM

Teams reportedly believe Bucs RG Davin Joseph could be had in a trade.

With a new regime in town, there's going to be housecleaning. Joseph was a two-time Pro Bowler and lane-paver in the run game prior to his 2012 patellar tendon tear, but was horrific upon his return in 2013. He'll turn 31 in November and is owed $6 million. The Bucs wouldn't get more than a late-round pick.
Mar 6 - 9:20 AM

Bucs RG Davin Joseph (knee) was a full participant as the team convened for its offseason program this week.

"Rehab is over with," confirmed Joseph, who tore his right patellar tendon last preseason. "[I'm] working out with the team, getting ready for the season, pushing with no limitations." Joseph is one of the better run-blocking guards in football. His return will be a boon to Doug Martin's efficiency in 2013.

Bucs RG Davin Joseph says he is fully recovered from his torn right patellar tendon that caused him to miss the entire season.

"I've always had minor issues with my patellar and I think my right knee is stronger now than it's ever been," he said. Joseph suffered the injury in preseason and underwent surgery in late August. With Joseph and LG Carl Nicks (toe) returning to health, it's a boon to Doug Martin's already-high fantasy stock. When healthy, the Bucs offensive line is one of the most powerful run-blocking units in the league.

Buccaneers placed RG Davin Joseph on injured reserve with a torn left patellar tendon, ending his season.

He'll undergo surgery on Monday. There was speculation Joseph had "only" suffered a broken kneecap, but now he'll be sidelined for upwards of a year. It's a massive blow for a Bucs team hoping to rely on a power-run game, and significantly weakens an interior line that was one of their only obvious strengths. G/C Ted Larsen will slide into the lineup opposite All-Pro LG Carl Nicks. Joseph, who was named to his second Pro Bowl last season, turns 29 in November.

Per Bucs sideline reporter Dave Wirth, RG Davin Joseph's left knee injury is a broken kneecap, and he'll be sidelined at least three months.

There's a glimmer of hope Joseph could return this season, but he'll still more than likely be placed on injured reserve. A broken kneecap would be preferable to a host of torn ligaments, but it's still awful news for a team counting on a power-rushing attack and powerful play from their mauling right guard. What was going to be one of the Bucs' only obvious strengths -- interior offensive line play -- is now a question mark with G/C Ted Larsen expected to line up opposite All-Pro LG Carl Nicks.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs believe RG Davin Joseph's left knee injury is season-ending.

Joseph will undergo further testing, but his year is likely through. It's a crushing blow for a Bucs team hoping to install a smash-mouth rushing attack under new coach Greg Schiano, as Joseph is amongst the league's strongest interior linemen. He was named to last season's Pro Bowl. G/C Ted Larsen is the first man up opposite All-Pro LG Carl Nicks.

Bucs RG Davin Joseph was carted off the field with a left knee injury in the second quarter of Friday night's preseason game.

Multiple observers suggested the injury looked serious, and Joseph was replaced by Ted Larsen. Losing Joseph could be a large blow to Tampa's offensive line, which is a power-blocking unit. Joseph is perhaps their most powerful lineman.
