The Browns have a new safety, as today they were awarded defensive back Sabby Piscitelli off waivers from the Bucs, who despite being a former starter was dumped earlier this week.
Piscitelli was drafted by Tampa Bay in the second round (64th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft, and has appeared in 45 career games with 20 starts, recording five interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. This season, he appeared in all 11 games with the Buccaneers, totaling 13 tackles and one interception.
Piscitelli started 36 of his 48 career games at Oregon State (2003-06), where he totaled 178 tackles, three fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, one sack and tied for second in school history with 15 interceptions. Born on August 24, 1983, the 6-3, 225-pound Piscitelli is a native of Boca Raton, Fla.
