Final Cuts Today; Busy Weekend Ahead

August 31st, 2012

Joe realizes that loads of readers are not rabid, obsessed Bucs fans like Joe. Loyal Joe readers might find it hard to believe, but the majority on these pages only visit a few times per month.

So Joe is just taking a moment to let everyone know the Bucs must chop their roster down to 53 players, or fewer, by 9 p.m. today.

All day long, Joe will be monitoring roster moves that are sure to leak, and the fallout from official cuts. Stick with Joe all weekend as the Bucs should be busy on the waiver wire and setting their practice squad.

    Thanks for all the hardwork, Joe. I think even those that love to hate the Bucs appreciate what you’ve done for us fellow fans. I visit multiple times a day as well. The Bucs are my crack, and Joe is my dealer. : ) I feel great about the upcoming season…IF our first string can stay healthy. If not…yikes! GO BUCS!!

    Josh Freeman has been…. put on notice. If he doesn’t complete 55% of his passes and convert on more than 50% of his 3rd downs, then I predict that he will be replaced by Olgolvy. (Fan, 2012).

    rennie curran cut per his twitter account.

  8. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    I bet Madu and Hughes get cut. I would say they have been cut, but I have no link to back it up.
    I thought Smith outplayed Madu anyway, so this is no surprise.

  9. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    Petrus, Lewis, McDonald, Rogers, Tandy, Gilberry, Te’o-Nesheim, Nix, White, Pianalto, Curran, Goode, Hughes, Meredith, sowell, Noble, Cox, Shipley, Stroughter

  10. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    The above are my predicted cuts, with maybe 3 of these guys making it.

    I think Baker and A. Black make the team.

  11. Kryq Says:

    Rennie Curran has been cut.

  12. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    Thanks, Joe. You rock!

  13. Chris FWC Says:

    G/T Wynn is the worst I’ve ever seen try to play G.

    No Dallas Clark?

  14. Chris FWC Says:

    Ah, just saw him at the bottom.

  15. NJBucsFan Says:

    Rotoworld has Tandy and Grimm cut with Madu and Okam.

  16. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

  17. NJBucsFan Says:

    According to rotoworld…yes.

  18. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Wow…didn’t see Okoye gone. Our DL is going to be a weakness yet again this yr.

  20. OAR Says:

    Finally, with pre-season over and the final cuts soon to come, we can get this season started! I’m very excited about my Bucs this year for a change!
    Go Bucs!

  21. lurker Says:


    i thought grimm was more important to the defense than gmc, according to thomas.

    okoye is sorta a shocker, though.

  22. Fritz50 Says:

    Joe, just to let you know, I visit several times a day. You’re my last site in my morning rounds ( best for last ) & evening wrap-up. Plus several times in between on days, like today, when things are hopping. I REALLY appreciate the time , dedication, & sheer work involved for you, & am more than willing to add to your count totals. Thank you !

  23. Teddy Says: is reporting Grimm was cut as well, although they could’ve gotten it from the Rotoworld report.

  24. gatorinarkansas Says:
