Outside Linebacker Roster Cuts (2)
The competition at outside linebacker has really started to heat up over the course of the last two weeks and we’re now going to see just who has earned the trust of the coaching staff.
The Buccaneers need to make two cuts at OLB as they have already made two cuts to inside linebackers.
The competitors? Quinton Bell, Michael Divinity Jr., Cam Gill, Anthony Nelson and Kahzin Daniels. These are all really young and talented guys who have potential in their futures, but there’s simply no way to keep them all on the active roster and that’s the dilemma.
Nelson is the primary backup and he has a spot. So, that leaves us with Bell, Divinity Jr. Gill and Daniels. Two go, two stay. Divinity Jr. and Gill are rookies while Bell and Daniels have minimal experience. They’ve all had some bright spots in camp, but they’ve also had some downfalls.
At this point, as much as it pains me to say it, I think Divinity Jr. and Bell are the two cuts while Gill and Daniels survive.
