As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers work their way towards the 75-man roster limit by Tuesday afternoon, the Bucs cut 12 players today.
The players cut are as follows:
The majority of the cuts aren’t surprising. Cutting Cain and Thompson means Andrew DePaola has won the long snapper job and it was already obvious Jorvorskie Lane had won the fullback job.
However, cutting Jace Daniels and Jason Foster is somewhat surprising but it shows they weren’t within a realistic chance of making the final 53. Both had been on the second-team all preseason, while Daniels had practiced with the first-team starters earlier in training camp.
Page had a chance to earn a place on the roster with his return game skills but he’s since been overtaken by Solomon Patton, who looks like he’s won that gig moving forward. Streeter opened some eyes in training camp and caught a 6-yard touchdown pass in the preseason opener but it wasn’t enough as the Bucs have a number of better options at receiver.
The other cuts were a case of too much depth and ability at their position.
The Bucs must still make three more cuts by the 4 p.m. Tuesday deadline. Tampa Bay next plays Thursday night against the Washington Redskins in its final preseason tilt.
