    A day after the Chicago Bears waived wide receiver Emanuel Hall, he has already found a new NFL home.

    According to multiple reports, Hall has been claimed on waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The move, first reported by ESPN’s Field Yates and Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, means that the Buccaneers are now on the hook for the $30,000 that was guaranteed in Hall’s contract.

    The undrafted free agent receiver was seen by many observers to be a potential dark-horse candidate for the Bears’ opening night roster, but after missing the team’s first preseason game, the Bears elected to waive him on Tuesday afternoon.

    The Bears will next take the field on Friday evening when they take on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
