Allen Bradford Released

October 13th, 2011

LeGarrette Blount goes down and out with a knee injury and the Bucs cut rookie running back Allen Bradford?

It’s true, so Twittered Rick Stroud, the St. Pete Times beat writer.

@NFLStroud – Bucs release RB Allen Bradford has been released by the Bucs.

Presumably, the move was made to create a roster spot for safety Tanard Jackson so he can play Sunday against the Saints, only six days after ending his 56-week suspension for substance abuse.

Perhaps the Bucs bring back Bradford on their practice squad, but as of now 2010 fifth-round pick Ahamad Black is on the practice squad despite the Bucs’ multiple injuries in the secondary, Bradford is in limbo, and seventh-round tight end Daniel Hardy was cut long ago.

It’s a lot harder to make the young Buccaneers and/or rockstar general manager Mark Dominik didn’t belt late-round home runs this year.

    They are RB hunting as we speak. Believe they are scanning the waiver wire, practice squads and some Fa’s still out there. Tiki Barber anyone??? lols.

    And if there was ever a week Mike Williams and the WR corp need to have a big day. This is it. I also hope the @$$ whooping Freeman took against the 49ers have humbled and lit a spark in him to be great again..

    I see this going Brees and Freeman going throw for throw.

    Well, I can’t wait to see what the next roster move is. I’ll be damned if we go into this game with Graham and Lumkin only.

  3. Mauha Deeb Says:

    Bradford has to clear waivers before the Bucs may sign him to the practice squad.
    I don’t care either way.

  4. stimpy Says:

    Graham and Lumpkin just aints going to do it.

  5. Tom Says:

    Man, if they bring anyone else in he wouldn’t know the offense well enough to play for a few weeks anyway… except Cadillac.

  6. wc3310 Says:

    Bradford runs with zero confidence… “tippy toes” either doesn’t knw how to read blocks or the big leagues may be to much for him

  7. Blake Says:

    I hope this is one of two moves, so we can maybe see Madu from the practice squad or some other RB step in. Graham/Lumpkin combo could get ugly.

  8. 941-Bucs Says:

    Mabu and Allen were good in preseason.. speaking what happen to that guy allen. He looked shift and speedy.

    Oh where is Kareem Huggins too?

  9. Dean Says:

    If they go into this game with Lumpkin and Graham chalk it up for a loss. No depth at RB. Doms fault. If the Bucs were to cut EG and lumpy, no other team signs them! EG is slow has no moves doesn’t break tackles and has a tendency to fumble. Why is he in the NFL?

  10. Patrick Says:

    Thank genius Dominick for letting go of Cadillac and getting nobody to replace him or compliment Blount. Running back was an obvious need all offseason and they just ignored it and were cheap once again. All this hype for LUMPKIN all offseason. Well where is he?! If he’s so good Dom, why don’t you play him?

    I said all along that we’d be in trouble if Blount got hurt. Now it’s reality!

  11. Captain Stagger Says:

    Huggy is either released or on IR, and Bradford was a confusing pick since day one. Lumpkin has never shown promise, not even in college.

    Where is Chad Spann and Nic Grigsby right now? I swore one if them could be this years Blount.

    Spann can go every down, and Grigsby with a 4.3 40 and a ton of catches would have been an interesting toy.

  12. macabee Says:

    Nick Grigsby has just been deleted from the MIami PS and Chad Spann is on the active roster of the Colts. The guy most similar to Blount is John Clay, 6-1, 248lbs, Wisconsin, currently on the Steelers PS. Can’t vouch for his chances in the NFL, but he was a beast at Wisc when healthy.

  13. Oahubuc Says:

    Wouldn’t be a problem for a new guy to learn the offense. Everyone knows our offense.

  14. Oahubuc Says:

    Activate Olson. Throw him out there. It would lend the game something enjoyable.

  15. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Dominick in my opinion made a few glaring errors this offseason but none worse than not having a capable back-up running back on this roster. Considering how hard Blount hits (and gets hit) you have to expect these type of small injuries to the guy. No knock on him, thats the way it is in this league. But to let Caddy walk and have nothing in the cabinet is a very poor decision indeed and I fear it will cost the Bucs this week. Freeman & Williams will have to have stellar games to have a shot. The way they have been playing lately………………….Sorry to say, but I’m taking the Saints to cover this week boys.

    I really needed a good laugh after a long day.. thank you, pretty much true.

  17. Kryq Says:

    Allen is on the bears practice squad.

  18. robbin Says:

    well well well weres cadillac oh they let him go and hes doing work in st louis wow thats gay uggghhh the buccss piss me offf i swear there dumb thank god im a die hard tampa bay fan

  19. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Hey Joe,

    According to BSPN, Brandon Lloyd may be on the trade block with the Broncos looking for a mid round pick in return. If it is true, wouldn’t this be an ideal player for the Bucs to pursue?

    -Blount is out so we’ll need a dynamite offence to carry the weight
    -Would take much of the pressure off Williams while creating one of the most dynamic duos in the league
    -We sure have the payroll to cover his salary
    -Would show the Bucs fans that ownership is serious about fielding a winner

    Looking for some negatives here. Attitude? Injuries? any reason not to?

  20. gotbbucs Says:

    bangkok, he’s had one good year in the nfl and he’s 30 years old. not worth a 3rd or 4th round pick in my opinion.

  21. BKNYfootballhead Says:

    Hey Dean, Patrick & Bangkok,
    I here the Raiders are looking for a GM. You can use me as a reference, if you’d like; I played high school football, I coach a pee-wee football team, I’m pretty good at Madden, and I’m currently in 2nd place of my fantasy football league.


    I hope Mossis Madu gets his a shot on the roster. He displayed nice speed and decent hands. He’s been in the cabinet, so to say, therefore he probably knows the offense pretty well by now.

  22. McBuc Says:

    BKNY…LOL…exactly! I am all for Mossis parting a sea of saints.
