Five Safeties, Seven Receivers Make The Cut

September 4th, 2010

Welcome to your 2010 Buccaneers.

The Bucs have made their final cuts, and here’s who got the ax, per 

*  CB Brandon Anderson
* S Vince Anderson
* RB Carlos Brown
* WR Michael Clayton
* C Jonathan Compas (waived/injured)
* G Marc Dile
* T Xavier Fulton
* DE George Johnson
* TE Jeron Mastrud
* LB Rico McCoy
* DT Dre Moore
* DT Carlton Powell
* TE Ryan Purvis
* C Donovan Raiola
* CB Derrick Roberson
* LB Lee Robinson
* DE James Ruffin
* QB Jevan Snead
* FB Rendrick Taylor
* CB Trae Williams

Joe’s really excited for Micheal Spurlock, who really earned his spot, although there might not be much work for him.

Joe is stunned the Bucs are going to carry seven wide receivers, including rookies Arrelious Benn, Mike Williams and Preston Parker, plus Reggie Brown, Maurice Stovall and Sammie Stroughter.

Goodness, there’s only one football!

Corey Lynch also was rewarded, and the Bucs are hanging on to five safeties, including Sabby Piscitelli, Tanard Jackson, Cody Grimm and Sean Jones.

    I guess we are going to be seeing more 5 receiver sets and nickel base defense this year.

  2. Dew Says:

    Reggie Brown and Sabby are trade bait right now IMO.

  3. Spirit of '76 Says:

    I don’t think we are done with additions and subtractions. The waiver wire has some nice potential pieces and adding some superior talent to what is currently on the roster is what I see coming. We still need help on the offensive line, backs and defensive ends. if there is someone out there that is better than what we currently have, those changes will be made. And as we stand at #3 in line, we have a very good chance of making some more upgrades. This current roster is far from being etched in stone.

  4. chargedcbh Says:

    I agree with Spirit 76, don’t forget we have to make one more cut week 2. When we get back Talib.

  5. Says:

    Im surprised that Ryan Sims made the cut. Im pretty sure he did absolutly nothing last year along with. Sabby and Clayton, And Derrik Ward. I guess you only have to produce on offence???

    Keep your words short and sweet. Just in case you have to eat them.

  8. TJ Says:

  9. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

  12. JimBuc Says:

    few more changes to come

  13. Gary Says:

    Goodbye mike Clayton!

  14. Javier n Wimauma Says:

    What a sad list of nobodys… its no wonder Sabby made it… this team is worthless.

    I guess Madden 2011 is right, the Bucs roster is in a sad state.

  15. JimBuc Says:

    “Javier n Wimauma Says:

    Further proof that you live in the land of make believe.

  16. Matt Says:

    Only issue is that we’re going to be a little thin on the OL.

    Let’s hope we don’t have any injuries…

  17. eric Says:

    Upon hearing of this roster, the rest of the NFC South has forfeited the Division Title.

    No need to even try and compete with these Hall of Famers with Rah at the helm.

  18. Dave Says:

    Javier n Wimauma
    do you and ERIC

    have a clue what rebuilding is? Seriously, you come on here and bitch and whine like a little girl about the personal and how things have been done for 2 years now…

    GET OVER IT, we all know what this is … rebuilding through the draft because the Glazers are broke.

    Seriosuly… GET THE F*** OVER IT and embrace the youth movement and enjoy watching them grow and mature..

    Or leave

  19. Joey d Says:

    Brown and sabby r useless

  20. BigMacAttack Says:

    I keep hearing Metallica and “For Whom the Bell Tolls”.

    Rock on!!!

  21. Tampa2Josh Says:

    @Javier n Wimauma I destroy anyone I play in madden and I’m always the bucs, lets rock…

    …can’t believe Sabby made the cut, hopefully he’ll be a special teams stud and Grimm and Lynch’s awesome play will keep him off the field.

  22. Pete Dutcher Says:

    The only surprises I see on the cut list are:

    DT Dre Moore (I thought he was in much better shape than in the past, and so another year might have helped him a lot; although we are stacked at DT)

    C Jonathan Compas ( I guess this might have been the last year of his contract, but this move leaves us with no backup at center…and that killed us last year)

    So, our current team is:

    C – Faine, Jeff

    CB – Barber, Ronde
    Biggers, E.J.
    Lewis, Myron
    Mack, Elbert

    DE – Crowder, Tim
    Lorig, Erik
    White, Stylez G.

    DE/DT – Moore, Kyle

    DL – Bennett, Michael

    DT – McCoy, Gerald
    Miller, Roy
    Price, Brian
    Sims, Ryan

    FB – Pressley, Chris

    OG – Joseph, Davin
    Vincent, Keydrick
    Zuttah, Jeremy

    K – Barth, Connor

    LB – Black, Quincy
    Hayes, Geno
    Hayward, Adam
    Koutouvides, Niko
    Ruud, Barrett
    Watson, Dekoda

    LS – Economos, Andrew

    P – Bowden, Brent

    QB – Carpenter, Rudy (3)
    Freeman, Josh (1)
    Johnson, Josh (2)

    RB – Graham, Earnest (2)
    Huggins, Kareem (3)
    Smith, Clifton (4;KR)
    Williams, Carnell (1)

    S – Grimm, Cody
    Jackson, Tanard (1)
    Jones, Sean (1)
    Lynch, Corey
    Piscitelli, Sabby

    OT – Hardman, Derek
    Lee, James
    Penn, Donald (1)
    Trueblood, Jeremy (1)

    TE – Gilmore, John (3)
    Stevens, Jerramy (2)
    Winslow, Kellen (1)

    WR – Benn, Arrelious
    Brown, Reggie
    Parker, Preston
    Spurlock, Micheal
    Stovall, Maurice (2)
    Stroughter, Sammie (3)
    Williams, Mike (1)

    ON I.R.
    LB – Alston, Jon
    T – Dotson, Demar
    DE – Gilbeaux, Brandon

    SUSPENDED Game 1
    CB – Talib, Aqib

    Interesting that Pressley has become the Starting Fullback. I was hoping he would make the team, but I didn’t expect him to overtake Graham at the position. It will be nice to see Graham at RB again.

    My biggest concern right now is Center. Faine already got injured last year, and we saw how badly it affected the team. We need to get a decent guy in here for a one year deal then draft one next year.

    I guess Zuttah is our new backup center, unless our long snapper can fill in in a pinch.

    May favorite two guys to make the grade…Michael Spurlock and Cory Lynch.

  23. Pete Dutcher Says:

    As to Javier and Eric and their criticisms…

    …as I look down the team roster, I find it difficult to name a position where we are not pretty good with the starters…maybe really good in all of them but Safety (Sean Jones; He’s passable but not great).

    As a matter of fact…when I look at the above list…I feel confident this team could exceed expections THIS year, depending on how long it takes our DL to gel.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. But I guess they had to have at least a little vet exp with the DT unit. Still, I was never high on Dre Moore, but considering he came into the league severely overweight and how trim he’s looking now compared to then, it at least shows he’s become a hard worker. More time would have been well spent.

    Is he still elegible for Practice Squad?

  25. eric Says:

    As I look down the roster I see two new starters on offense, Vincent and Williams. And on defense McCoy and Jones.

    This is the best the manchild can do?

  26. McBuc Says:

    Eric…your last post was foolish. You had two days of a good attitude, and now you are back to bashing just to bash. Keep it up and you may end up on the Radio and Javier list.

  27. TrueBlue Says:

    Going into their first and second years Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Derrick Brooks and most all Pro Bowlers were pretty much no-bodies. So this team may yet be okay. Will there be any Pro Bowlers in this bunch? Who knows. But I like what I see. If hating on them makes you feel superior, enjoy your sad little outlook. Just glad I don’t have to be you.

  28. Gary Says:

    Eric is just someone who can’t help but be a sarcastic pessimist. It just takes getting used to. Javier and radio are just mindless haters, that I will never get used to.

  29. TrueBlue Says:

    It’s likely that some of these guys just like to stir up the real Buc fans, taking some sick humor in it. So be it. Flies are an annoyance as well, but most people just brush them away and go on enjoying the picnic.

  30. eric Says:

    Am I wrong as to the new starters?

    I got it from the bucs own depth chart.

  31. McBuc Says:

    Oops, sorry Eric, I misread your post. I thought you were saying they were the only true starters. I see what you meant. Sorry about that.

  32. Dr. Dave Says:

    Sabby = trade bait

  33. Radio Mushmouth ( Mr. Credibility ) Says:

    Why would any trade for sabby if he sucks as bad as all of you claim ??

  34. BamBamBuc Says:

    Eric, I would figure Kyle Moore is a new starter as well. And, you could say Roy Miller is a new starter this year. He definitely wasn’t the “main” starter at DT last year, although he finished the year starting more games. Also, it’s undetermined who will open at the Z WR spot, but if Stroughter is on the field, he also was not a starter last year, although he had a lot of playing time. Regardless, we aren’t opening the season with an injured AB and Clayton at WR, so to open the season, we have 2 new starters there over last years opener.

    If you’re comparing starters opening this season to starters ending last season, I’m not upset with 2, as they won 2 of 3 to finish the season, and played pretty tough down the stretch. So, I guess I still don’t see your point.

  35. BamBamBuc Says:

    I guess I am wondering if you (Eric) think that Talib and Barber are bad CBs? Hayes, Ruud and Black bad LBs? They’re all starting again, and I think they’ll do pretty well. They’ve given no indication of being worse than last year. What about Tanard Jackson? Should he have been replaced as a starter by Grimm or Lynch? Maybe Freeman shouldn’t be our franchise starting QB? Put JJ or Carpenter in? How about the O-line… one was replaced… Are Penn, Faine, Joseph not good starters? Maybe K2 should ride the pine while Stevens plays?

    I admit we didn’t upgrade at RB or DE, but I don’t think we got worse either. We did upgrade at WR (you may say AB is better, but he was injured from preseason on, so I’d say Williams is better than an injured AB for sure). We did upgrade at DT (there’s no way you’re saying that GMC/Price/Miller isn’t better than Hovan/Sims/Miller). So, how many more of the starters did you think they could replace in one offseason? They’ve added depth with young guys like Watson, Benn, Grimm.

    Yes, they need to address RB, DE, and O-line still, but they can’t get everything in one offseason. Especially one where most UFA’s are still RFA’s.

  36. BigMacAttack Says:

    I don’t think the Bucs are done yet. I’d look for a couple 2 or 3 players to come in off the wire, so cuts should go deeper.

    Uh Sabby, Bubbye.

  37. BigMacAttack Says:

    Report: Bucs claim Patriots C Ted Larsen off waivers

    The Bucs began raiding NFL teams for talent by claiming center Ted Larsen off waivers from the New England Patriots, according to

    The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Larsen was a sixth-round pick by the Patriots from North Carolina State. The Patriots had hoped to sneak him through waivers and re-sign him to their practice squad.

    There’s #1. Bubbye Sims…

  38. Joe Says:


    Bucs also picked up a scrub running back Joe believes. At least he remembers reading that on Twitter.

  39. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Cool, at least the threat I felt at Center wasn’t ignored by the coaching staff. I mentioned above that Center was now a weakness in depth; not that I think the coaches would ever read anything I posted, but it’s good to know they see the same things I saw and are making an effort to correct the problem.

    I have to point out that the objective is not to add new starters each year, it’s to develop good enough players so that there is not a need to add new starters each year. So in that respect, things are proceeding fine.
