Five Buccaneers veterans who may not make the cut

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the 2020 season with still quite the amount of decisions to make.

The Buccaneers are one of the favorites to make the postseason and compete beyond because of the addition of Tom Brady, among others, during the offseason.

As the franchise begins to look at potential roster cuts to get to 53 men, here are five veterans who may not make the  cut for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

5. Dare Ogunbowale

No one wants to see Dare Ogunbowale go anywhere.

Ogunbowale has great work ethic and he’s done an excellent job when given the opportunity, but his chances are going to be few and far in-between this season and that could lead to him being without a job relatively early.

Ronald Jones II is the clear-cut starter and newly-drafted RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn is now pegged as the second-stringer and third-down back because of his explosiveness and great strength. While there would still be room for Ogunbowale had Vaughn been the only drafted running back, it might be the addition of Raymond Calais that put it over the edge.

Calais presents a ‘homerun’ threat type of running back and could very easily play special teams. T.J. Logan has been a proven special teamer as well and there’s no reason to keep another running back on the active roster if you’re going to have all of these guys on the depth chart.

Could Ogunbowale simply be the odd-man out?
