The pre-season is over and it’s cutting season for the Buccaneers and 31 other NFL franchises. Some players are finding out they’ve achieved lifelong dreams while others are in search for new opportunities.
To say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had an up and down 2016 would be an understatement. There have been plenty of players who stood out in practice and in the limited action afforded in the four contests held for both good and bad reasons.
From player tantrums to questions about work ethic and dedication, this team has seen some of the lowest while they’ve had surprise efforts from undrafted free-agents who entered camp as virtual unknowns.
Now, Dirk Koetter and his staff of coaches have made their decisions on how the Bucs’ initial 53-man roster will look, and it’s got a mixed bag of expected names followed up with a handful of surprise moves.
I’m sure all fans of the franchise will have their opinions and thoughts on who should have been kept and who shouldn’t, but for now let’s take a look at the roster as a whole.
Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing your 2016 Tampa Bay Bucs!
