3 Buccaneers cuts that make the most sense after preseason
By Rob Leeds
The preseason gave the Buccaneers a lot to chew on and evaluate for their 53-man roster. Here is who should get the boot sooner rather than later.
The Buccaneers have some tough decisions ahead as they try to figure out what they can do with their 53-man roster to put the team in the best position to compete for another Super Bowl.
As nice as it would be to keep everyone associated with the franchise, cuts are going to come, and some guys that are well-liked by the team and the fans are going to be some of the casualties.
The Buccaneers don’t have a ton of open spaces due to the sheer number of defined players that can’t be in danger of losing their jobs, but there are a few cuts that could surprise some of the fans.
One way or another, these seem quite easy to predict.
You can’t miss kicks in the preseason if you want to win a job from a veteran like Ryan Succop. Borregales was able to show off his leg and his distance well, but the accuracy just wasn’t there. Succop just makes too much sense for a team that can’t afford to take a step backwards at the position.
It’s hard to make the team if you can’t play.
Perriman was a good receiver for the Bucs in stretches and has been a big part of some cool moments, but the odds were already long for him to make the roster, and not playing did not help those prospects.
Grant Stuard showed us that he was still good as a special teams player, but his performances as a linebacker were lacking. The Buccaneers can do better with a guy that can actually play both roles rather than a one-trick pony.
