Goodbye, E.J. Wilson

August 31st, 2012

It seems E.J. Wilson, who prior to the New Schiano Order had some of the most (ahem) interesting Twitter posts that were sent out at 2 a.m., is no longer a Bucs player.

The ubiquitous Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, rather than those relying on now-deleted Twitter postings from an MSMer, is doing gumshoe journalism and is tracking down agents of players believed to be on the bubble, including Wilson’s.

@RCummingsTrib: Add DL E.J. Wilson to the list of those released by the Bucs. Agent confirms the surprising news. Wilson looked very good during camp

Yes, Wilson had some strong practices and games, including the win over the Patriots in preseason.

Sadly for Wilson, Joe will long remember his politically incorrect Twitter ramblings in the middle of the night (like how he hated women because all he wanted was sex and women wanted a relationship) than Joe will of him making any plays on the football field.

    dang! I hope ronde can play DL

  2. Chris FWC Says:

    They cut the wrong EJ!!

  3. bucfanjeff Says:

    …and thinner, and thinner…

  4. Jarret Says:

    Just keep droppin’ those d-lineman. Looks like the Bucs are goin’ to a 3-4 lol

  5. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I’m doing my best to trust that Schiano has a grand master plan for the defensive line. Maybe they’ve claimed someone off waivers they like? Perhaps signed a free agent we don’t know about yet? Wow.

    That’s Okam, Wilson and Okoye down. There aren’t many DT’s left standing. Trying not to get worried here.

  6. Buc Fan #237 Says:

    Well… we need players that played like this team did:

  7. Lion Says:

    Scratching my head here. We literally have zero depth on the D-line and they are cutting d-lineman. What is going on?

  8. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Obviously there is a plan in place. We aren’t going into the season this thin at DT. Just have to wonder who is in the plans.

  9. Lion Says:

    @Chris FWC

    Good one, lol.

  10. Orlandobucfan Says:

    I was thinking the same thing. Lmao

  11. Miguel Grande Says:

    Don’t worry, FL Boy, Woody Cummings said that Schiano told him that it takes 25-30 years to understand this defense. You don’t really need depth at DT.

    Roy Miller and GMC can handle the load. Remember last year?

    The Little General and the Rockstar have it all under control, just like Bobby Valentine with the Red Sox.

  12. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    So they cut a D-lineman who performed fairly well and cut a D-lineman who could not stay on the field enough to perform… just does not make sense. I will trust they know what they are doing.

  13. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Gibson, White and Nix the only remaining depth at DT.

    There has to be a plan. Keep telling myself that.


  14. FLBoyInDallas Says:


    Sarcasm aside, it’s obvious they were as disappointed with the depth at DT as they were at OG. I just don’t know how successful you can be overhauling your DT depth so close to the start of the season. There’s no way they go into the game against Carolina with Gary Gibson, Jordan Nix and Teryl White as depth. No freaking way. They HAVE TO have a couple guys already lined up.

  15. bucfanjeff Says:

    I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…

  16. FlBoy84 Says:

    If the team can’t find some upgrades at OG & DT from the 1200 or so players that are released this week, then something’s majorly wrong in the scouting department.

  17. Miguel Grande Says:

    I would love to be at the Buccaneer Palace to watch the new DL guys sprinting their way on to this team.

    I hope their legs can recover by the bye week.

  18. Oahubuc Says:

    WTF is going on here? Legit question, since I assume they must have some confidence in some guys hitting the wire.

  19. Big Marlon B Says:

    anddddd there goes Miguel’s obligatory conditioning test reference again. it just wouldn’t be a day at JBF without it

  20. Rican Says:

    Im sorry there just noway that these two cuts would have been made without a major splash play that we don’t know about in the works. E.J under the mantra of Greg “earned” a spot this preseason so I’d have to think they are just being courteous and allowing him the ability to find a team he can have a chance to play on? IDK im flabbergasted.

  21. Garv Says:

    Mr. errrr DR. Grandee of Honduras of some other God forsaken country that would take him and his drug addled BS, is always complaining about something.
    The glass pipes falling from trembling fingers and shattering on the pavement will do that to a “man.”


  22. Miguel Grande Says:

    I think you guys are beginning to see what I have been seeing all along. The Emperor Napoleon is wearing no clothes. It’s disturbing.

    How butch is that?

    In about 25-30 years we’ll begin to understand this defense.


  23. BucFan20 Says:

    lamo. Look who’s crying now. They are not STUPID. Let’s get rid of everyone with no plan. If they don’t fit they don’t stay. Would you rather them try it their way? Or Just see what we saw last year. I think I’ll let the new staff have their game plan.

  24. Rican Says:

    “You can be a little more cautious at times (with players) and we’ve tried to do that (with Okoye), but at the end of the day, you’ve got to go out and earn a spot,” Schiano said Thursday.
    That explains Okoye but how does that explain Wilson who most definitely has performed?
    Than there is this quote “I think some have done some good things, but there’s not a huge mix to play into,” he said. “It’s not an area where we have a lot of depth. So it’s one area where, when you get behind the front-line guys, it gets a little thin.”
    Soooooooooo…… you cut your only depth? I dont think Schiano is a man of contradiction so I’ll trust that he’s not a walking oxymoron for now. Please don’t disappoint.

  25. Robbie G Says:

    WOW, with the lack of depth on the D line, this might come back to bite us in our behind.
    Okoye gone, Prince gone, hmmmm I dunno my fellow Bucs fans…

  26. albuc44 Says:

    oh now I see more people joining the panic button wagon…. come on over awful view from here… :/ …. there is no way that your going to replace cuts with other cut players and think you are gonna make magic happen over night with guys who havent even got to learn our system yet.. its not every year you get A donald Penn this rate we will need 5 of those to help with OL and DL …. waiting on the Rockstar

  27. D Says:

    I have no idea what’s going on but our defensive brain trust is not seeming very brainy right now. Control freaks are usually egotists. Are we seeing ego-cuts or practicality cuts, as this point? Was Wilson just not doing Schiano’s “Buccaneer Way?”

  28. OAR Says:

    That awkward moment when your the only one laughing at your humor.

  29. OAR Says:

    We really should stop asking “Grande how stupid can you be?” Cause, he’s taking it up as a challenge.

  30. Patrick Says:

    Maybe a big trade is coming??? This is the third DT they’ve released!

  31. Rican Says:

    I hope so my high hopes for the season are fading more and more along with the already questionable Freeman.

  32. bucnjim Says:

    Oar took the words out of my mouth! Please GO cheer for another team! This team will surprise so many people this year. Then the I told you so idiot’s will disappear.

  33. bucnjim Says:

    There is a plan! You think they are just cutting players for the hell of it? Not very intelligent for some of you!

  34. Rican Says:

    We shall see

  35. buxter Says:

    Sounds like Big Mike needs to take a tube of Preparation H and squirt it in his ear.

    I’ve got a little more faith than some because it’s as simple as this. The staff knows there are better people coming available.

    The scary part is not knowing whom.

  36. teacherman777 Says:

    @D- Dead on.

    Coach might be taking his power to his head a bit.

    I think this cut is about personality.

    We have no depth. Fact. No need to argue. We are going to pay Okoye $700,000 half his contract for nothing. Why not give him a test run for the first half of the season too!?

  37. Lion Says:

    Word on the street is Tiquan Underwood got cut.
