Predicting the final 2020 roster cuts for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have just seven more cuts to go to get their roster down to the 53-man limit for the upcoming 2020 season.

The Buccaneers announced a massive amount of cuts beginning Friday morning that consisted of a total of 19 players. Two prominent names included in that group were RB Dare Ogunbowale and K Matt Gay and Tampa Bay isn’t done yet.

As we head down the stretch with Saturday’s deadline looming, the Bucs have to make seven more roster cuts and we know a little bit about what the breakdown will look like.

The Athletic’s Greg Auman predicts that the Bucs will cut two offensive linemen, two outside linebackers, a wide receiver, a safety and one more player from a position of their choice.

Going off of that information that we mostly agree with, we can begin to zero in on the potential cuts and who might be left standing at each position.

Here’s a look at our predictions for the final roster cuts that will be made by the Buccaneers, beginning with the offensive line.

Offensive Line Roster Cuts (2)

You’ve got to make at least two offensive line cuts- though some might say that the OL will also have a third cut.

Looking at the current OL, C Zach Shackelford looks in prime position to be cut due to the other veteran centers on the roster. With Bailey and Leverette (both offensive guards) being cut, it only makes sense that the Bucs would cut a center and then they’ll have the tough decision to determine who is the final cut.

John Molchon and Aaron Stinnie seem to be the final choices. At this point, we’re going to Molchon and keep Stinnie.
