Report: Bucs Cut Connor BarthAugust 29th, 2014
Per WDAE-AM 620, the Buccaneers’ flagship station, Barth has gotten the boot from the roster.
It seems undrafted, inexperienced Patrick Murray won the job — or Jason Licht has a move in store.
Barth, per ESPN, had a base salary of $2 million this season and could have earned up to $3.15 million via roster bonuses. Joe suspects an unemployed kicker would come significantly cheaper.
Former Pro Bowler Rob Bironas, who the Bucs worked out this month, made 25 of 29 field goals (86.2 percent) last year (2-for-3 from 50+ yards) and was perfect on extra points. Barth missed all of last season and is a 84.2 on field goals for his career.
