The Buccaneers have released three players, but at the same time, signed two rookies to contracts:
- The most notable cut has to be LB Angelo Crowell, who has a total of 346 tackles and 7 sacks since his rookie season in 2003.
- The other two players who are no longer on the team are S Emanuel Cook (who never lived up to the expectations placed on him coming out of college), and LS Chris Mauriello.
- Besides releasing three players, the Bucs did sign two of their draft picks – DE Erik Lorig and LB Dekoda Watson have officially signed their first ever NFL contracts.
