Caputo, who spent rookie training camp last May with the New Orleans Saints, played under current LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda at Wisconsin from 2012-2015, including the last three as a starter.
Over his career with the Badgers, Caputo compiled 144 total tackles, to go along with 100 assisted tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 3 interceptions.
A native of Imperial, Pennsylvania, Caputo spent two weeks with the Los Angeles Rams last August, before being released before the beginning of the regular season.
