    Important Note: Waiver claims will be released by the NFL tomorrow at 12 PM Eastern.

  2. Robert Says:

    Hope they get Logan back. TJ too…..but I doubt it. He’s probably pissed and rightfully so. Man showed out in preseason. At least at catching the ball.

  3. Rod Munch Says:

    Ah, I see what they did, only 3 safeties. Yeah, that’s a huge tell that Logan will get resigned.

    Surprised they kept Gio, as Vaughn played quite well, and White is the natural replacement for Gio. That might be an area where they gain back a roster spot.

    I really really can’t believe they kept Darden, he’s shown absolutely nothing, and I can’t believe he wouldn’t have made it through waivers and onto the practice squad. As a returner, Thompkins easily outplayed him, and as a WR he doesn’t offer anything. Puzzling move, but we’ll see how the actual roster shakes out, I can still see them dumping Darden.

  4. SB~LV Says:

    Of course a starting experienced interior lineman with a year left in the tank would be wise

  5. ClwJB Says:

    The OLine depth is thin – but it’s like throwing darts at a brick wall, what a lovely roster of players – LFG!!!!

  6. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Wouldn’t call that a SB team.

  7. Listnfrmafar Says:

    This is still BA’s team, GOOD LUCK Bucs fans!

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Let me guess…..the bubble players (in no particular order)

    Fred Johnson
    Brandon Walton
    Dee Delaney
    Pat O’Connor
    Olakunie Fatukasi

  9. Hodad Says:

    Pick up a center, guard, cut Gio. Don’t need 4 backs.

  10. Bucschamp Says:

    They gave Darden another chance.? He was ok at camp and hopefully translates to productive real game. We need speedy receivers now that our Oline is a bit weaker

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    Let me remind you that BA’s team won a SB.

  12. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Tampa, let me remind you, BA went 7-9, Tom Brady’s team won the SB, BA went along for the ride, until he didn’t and screwed up last season.

  13. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Agree that Darden should have been cut and Tompkins retained.

  14. Buc king Says:

    Kyle Rudolph?
    Dee Delaney?
    Fred Johnson?
    Fatuk wte the hell his name is?

    All big question marks for me.
    Personally I would be trying to move picks for..oline player that are better then current players even the 2 I didn’t name because they are I guess starters n lav is injured kinda of.

    The bucs need to shop the waiver line and dangle some picks to strengthen the lines on both sides and to find a fast te the can catch not named oj Howard. F him….
    Only way any receiver makes this team is brady endorsed so if your mad about tj or Thompson well to bad maybe they make the practice team.
    Hopefully they never play.

    I will have a list of players I think we should kick the tires of.
    I still think tretter would be a smart move if he can play guard and how long we go with out Jensen..
    Not knowing much about his injury because of lack of updates I’m assume he’s back week 8 to 10…

  15. David Says:

    Tyler Johnson is the only real surprise unless Logan Ryan does not sign back tomorrow as soon as Jensen goes on IR
    You can argue Miller or Darden were outplayed by Thompkins but we didn’t see every practice. From what we hear, Thompkins dropped a lot.

    I would say there is still going to be a lineman picked up on the waiver wire, maybe two. The depth is shaky.

    I also would not be surprised if Gio doesn’t last. The other three backs are better runners, he doesn’t bring anything to special teams, and he really didn’t show a lot in the passing game last year

  16. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Nassib showed NOTHING!

  17. Buc king Says:

    Nassib looks like pure trash 🗑.

  18. Alvafan Says:

    Didn’t they learn last year when they lost Mickens to the Jags. Just cause you drafted Darden to high doesn’t mean you have to keep him when there’s clearly better talent heading out the door

  19. Crickett Baker Says:

    Darden must be the secret love child of one of the coaches. I seem to remember someone saying it took him a year to understand the playbook, and he played like a junior high school kid.

  20. Bucanero Says:

    roster looks great, need better depth at OL and sign Ryan back. Are the Bucs bringing some cut players form other teams? Maybe try Leatherwood as a Guard?

  21. Listnfrmafar Says:

    If they’re keeping Darden to save face, that’s so bad for the team. This guy has done nothing as a returner, I question if he was worst in the league and nothing as a WR.

  22. SB~LV Says:

    There should be a perma list of the Darden haters..
    Not that I am high on him , he is the bottom of depth chart, but he came from a 16th grade HS program. He is bigger and calmer this year. He is certainly better than last year and has experience with the program. I’ve been high on Devin Thompkins since early TC , I can see that the tie breaker over Thompkins is the year of experience and familiarity with Brady.
    So …. I still have Dardens back!

  23. Rod Munch Says:

    Thompkins likely is on the practice squad, but he’d only be a returner, he’s tiny (listed at 155lb) so it’s doubtful he’d ever be more than a returner, but in that role he looked solid, and from what little I know about him, he wasn’t a college returner, so he’d have plenty of room for improvement.

    Jarden, in college, was played a little at returner and wasn’t very good at it, it’s always amazed me that the Bucs took him, seemingly, as a returner, since there’s nothing really special about his speed or quickness, and he’s undersized for a WR. According to Greg Auman, he says Arians called Darden the most improved player on the roster over the last month, so if you want to believe that and ignore the game footage, that could be why he’s still there. In any case, as others have said, we don’t see practice, so maybe they are in fact seeing something there that isn’t showing up on gameday. I just hope it’s not what it appears to be, and Licht just protecting a draft pick to make his draft record look better. I don’t think Licht would do that, not with a SB-caliber team.

  24. steele Says:

    I am still waiting for an explanation from the team about Logan Ryan. Anyone assuming Ryan is coming back could be in for a rude surprise.

    There is a lot of dead wood that survived and still on the roster, which has not been upgraded. Pretty much, this is still last season’s team, minus several huge pieces, and minus the one guy they brought in to stabilize the secondary.

  25. JimmyJack Says:

    My critism here is only 22 on defense.

    Everybody wants to single out Armstrong for ST. It is fair to put blame on him but part of the story is probably the way we build the roster. I count 4 WR who wont do a thing on ST. Perriman hasnt done much for us. Darden is ineffective until proven otherwise. I love having a lot of weapons but when you have 1 WR(Scotty) your hoping will be a reliable Special Teamer, I think its safe to say it comes at a cost.

    I like what Gio(he has value as a returner)can do and I like solid TEs like Rudolph but I could argue those positions would be better used for young energetic guys for kick coverage.

    We are all set to churn out another league leading offense(possibly better then the last 3 years) so I cant possibly be upset. We are also set to struggle on ST, like usual, and it looks to me that the way we build our roster is part of the reason.

  26. steele Says:

    Let’s say cutting Logan Ryan was purely numbers to do something about Jensen.
    Why cut LR? Why not do a wink-wink with someone else instead, someone at the bottom of the roster? It’s a bad look, totally disrespectful.

  27. Jerry Says:

    Listnfrmafar Says:
    August 30th, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Wouldn’t call that a SB team.


    I bet you said the same thing in August of 2020.

  28. Mike Says:

    Johnson, Walton and O’Connor would be my three bubble players, depending on who’s available to pick up.

  29. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyJack – I think as Joe says, the roster isn’t really set. They don’t have much depth on defense as you point out, but they certainly signing Logan back since they only got 3 safeties, so you get a spot back there.

    Keeping Darden as a #7 WR is something, I wouldn’t do that. White can return kickoffs, Scotty is better as a punt return than Darden (not a high bar), so there’s your returners.

    I don’t think we need Rudolph, although betting on rookie TEs is incredibly risky. But Rudolph looked slow as hell in the preseason, but they see him in practice and if he was that slow, they’d send him packing. I certainly would and just bring back OJ since he knows the offense and has developed into a decent blocker, where he played most of last season.

    I don’t see any value in keeping Gino. I liked when they signed him, but White is the man there, and it’s not like anyone else is signing him, so he’d be available to come back in from the couch if injuries required it.

    But I doubt the roster looks like this in a couple of days. We’ll see how gets the boot.

  30. Crunchbuc Says:

    Why not put Darden on waivers instead of Ryan. Ain’t nobody gonna claim Darden. He sux

  31. Anonymous Says:

    Darden is pure fun tho…
    Every team should have a crazy on field jokester…
    He’s halfway to the ground before he even gets moving

  32. August 1976 Buc Says:


    Denying the facts again lololol

    There is a 2nd Shiny Lombardi at 1 Buc Palace, and just so there is no revisionist history here, BA was the Head Coach of the 2020 team.

    Last time I looked Brady was the QB, not the head coach. Maybe I missed something lol


    Try have a decent day bro, I know you are triggered by anything with BA in it, but you will make it through the day 😂

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  33. JimmyJack Says:

    Munch good point that the roster will change. Dont think Ryan will play ST but Im sure we’ll see multiple moves.

    Im with you on White. If hes not returning kickoffs in Dallas I will scratch my head. But honestly I dont care too much about returns. As long as they can secure the ball For Tom and the offense.

    My problem is coverage. Not very confident in those units.

  34. JimmyJack Says:

    Crunch if you read the articles Joe explained why Ryan made better sense to cut.

  35. Listnfrmafar Says:

    August, you are living in denial. Brady brought in the pieces and a winning and discipline culture to a LOSING team and coaching staff. If you and others on this site can’t see that’s what happened then have fun in your land of fairy tails and unicorns, cause you’re definitely not dealing with reality.

  36. LakelandSteve Says:

    Wouldn’t be surprised if the Bucs pick up an offensive lineman and someone or two who can cover punts and kick offs.

  37. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Sorry List, lolololol But I know for sure I saw BA as the Head Coach on the Sideline of Super Bowl LV for the KC beatdown.
    Just go to Youtube, and you can watch.
    Denial is trying to say something in the face of actual facts.
    And you are doing that repeatedly about this.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  38. Steven007 Says:

    List, good luck with your Pat’s 😆😂

  39. Eckwood Says:

    I would venture a guess Ryan knew about this / pseudo volunteer ed weeks ago .

  40. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    Darden had a strong offseason and training camp. He looked better physically and seemed improved in practice. And his speed is nice. Seeing TB12 and the Bucs staff kept him, they have their reasons

  41. Pickgrin Says:

    A solid roster – 3 or 4 changes likely coming in the next couple days.

    Obviously the Ryan cut was to get Jensen on the IR designation that allows him to come back later this year. I’m 100% sure the Bucs gave Ryan a heads up and got an an agreement that he won’t run off to another team that offers more $. Ryan wants a ring at this point in his career. He spent the whole offseason learning the defense, bonding with teammates – Ryan loves Bowles and the feeling is mutual. No worries there – and it was a smart move.

    The other move I expect is that Perriman will go on IR pretty quickly – he could come back in 3-4 weeks if needed or just be stashed there most of the year and still come back late if needed…..

    Listnfromabasement – Get a clue!

    Having Brady for 3 years has been amazing – but when he’s gone – none of the JBF regulars will miss the annoying Masshole commentors that have permeated this little corner of the internet the last 2 years and will be gone as soon as TB12 is no longer the Bucs QB……

  42. Steven007 Says:

    Pick, preach. That will be the absolute best part of life post Brady. Get these bandwagon douchebags back to the AFC Least, as far as their old Pats are concerned. Patricia as OC?! That’s a laugh. And Big Mac was better when he was actually big. Allen and the bills will own that team until belichick retires. Have fun guys! It was good while it lasted.

  43. Dre_Day_SOG Says:

    We kept Darden over Tyler Johnson? Awesome! Darden = Unable to get open in the passing game, and runs straight to the closest sideline on EVERY SINGLE KICK RETURN!

    We kept Scotty over Tyler Johnson? Awesome. Scotty = Unable to get open in the passing game and only has one viable route in the route tree!

    I mean, all Tyler Johnson does is find open spaces, makes tough catches, gets yards after the catch……Great choice……

  44. Defense Rules Says:

    No real surprises in the defensive players kept, but there is one BIG surprise: they kept only 22 players. ASSUMING that we bring back Logan Ryan, that takes us up to 23. Only gives us 9 guys in the Secondary, 5 CBs & 4 Safeties. Not comfortable with that after last year.

  45. Defense Rules Says:

    Far as I can tell, HALF of this year’s team was on our 2020 Super Bowl roster. That’s a pretty good foundation to start with.

  46. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Pickarse, when Brady’s gone, you, August and Steven will have front row seats to your team because there will be a dumpster sale for season tickets. Yes, BA was on the SIDELINE with his Sony Walkman listening to Pink Floyd while Brady ran his team.

  47. GOB Says:

    Listn, don’t bother. They secretly admit that fact to themselves every night. Let them have their dream world for another season. On the roster, I see Kyle Trask couldn’t supplant the mighty Blane Gabbert. Maybe it takes three years to completely rebuild a delivery. Anyone who still thinks they would’ve drafted him 64th, knowing what they know now is insane. If they don’t have a handshake with Logan Ryan, get ready for a long season folks.

  48. GOB Says:

    I’ll give BA credit for one thing. His Vader like breathing apparatus did look pretty cool on the sideline. If only he could harness the force like the dark lord of the sith.

  49. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Howie Roseman>Jason Licht. The Eagles are real contenders.

  50. JimmyJack Says:

    List you are way out of your league bro. You are completely ignorant to anything about this team before Brady got here. You are a Brady clinger, you werent here when Bruce got here in 2019 and certainly werent here before then when we were a 5 win team.

    You clearly have no idea that Todd the Godd took over one of the worst stastical defenses in league history and turned it into a Championship caliber Defense. You have no clue how Byron took hold of a good offense that couldnt produce in the redzone and fixed the issue.

    You make a “no duh” point that Brady(and a few players he helped us get) had a lot to do with our Lombardi………But dont you never forget Tom picked to work with this coach staff because they were well proven and he picked to work with this roster because it was built to win……….thats exactly what happened.

    So dont be telling us what the Bucs will be after Brady when you clearly havd no idea about before Brady. We all know you dont care. By the, you will be following McHommes(I hear hes the next Tom Brady) and you can have your fun telling K.C. fans how terrible Andy Ried is.

  51. JimmyJack Says:

    **END RANT**

  52. August 1976 Buc Says:

    So List you admit BA was on the sideline lol, as the Head Coach.
    GOB this team has been a dumpster for much of their existance, and if it goes that way again, whatever. Life goes on, but dishonest criticism about BA or anyone is another. Why try and discount what someone has done when criticizing someone. Criticize all you want, just be honest and not deny facts. Is BA perfect lol, not by a long shot. But he has a proven track record of winning with 3 NFL teams. That is a fact. But to denigrate and deny facts when making criticisms, is worthy of honest criticism.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  53. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Congrats 5 wins to a whopping 7, such a great accomplishment. Brady didn’t want BA, he wanted Evan’s, Godwin, AB & Gronk with a pretty good oline. He had vision far beyond BA’s bifocals. Without Brady he is just another Lovie, Harris, Kotter, Dungy wannabe.

  54. GOB Says:

    August, I’m not discounting what BA did. He was smart enough (after the bye) to GTF out of Brady’s way. What I am discounting is his importance to the operation. The man is incredibly overrated by many of you. Barry Switzer, and George Siefert won Superbowls. Nobody confuses them with great coaches. Is he a total boob, no. Although he’s certainly shown signs of it in his old age. Smacking players, sideline outbursts, and his apparent indifference to practice, just to name a few. Us in NE have figured it out. It was largely about Brady, not Bill. Why you would give someone with half the resume, who never had control of a roster that much credit is beyond me.

  55. Steven007 Says:

    Poor List, perpetually triggered. Again, how about those Pats? Gravy train is over there. Enjoy perpetual mediocrity again. As for your fake fan team, try to enjoy the ride this year. We should be pretty good. With a quarterback you worship and a pretty good team around him. God it must suck to be a Pat’s fan these days…

  56. Steven007 Says:

    GOB, letting Tom be Tom is part of BA’s brilliance. You think he didn’t know that? Because he might not have made the move you wanted him to make on your timeline doesn’t take away from the fact that he made it. It’s the reason he gave up on a talented quarterback who he tried to cultivate. Credit also for knowing that wouldn’t result in a super bowl. And BA had more success in his previous outings then Bill ever did. Solid teams in Arizona. Great job with Indy. Is he a Hall of Fame coach? Nope. But he’s a good coach which I think is pretty obvious.

  57. JimmyJack Says:


    List is pretending to be Toms spokesperson. Oh, please….. share all your knowledge of all the things Tom did and didnt want when he came to Tampa Bay. And I just cant wait till you tell us the story how you gained acces to the privledged info about the international superstart.

    Let me clue you Bucs fans in about something. You can always spot a Tom Brady clinger by thier attitude. New England media has pumped them with 2 years of irrational narritives about why Tom playing in Tampa Bay is horrible and a terrible fit. In a Patroits fan mind there never can be a better fit then Tom Brady as a Patriot. They cannot have a stain on their legacy(though a 2020 Ring is a bad one).

  58. JimmyJack Says:

    And yes. Pats fans cannot stand that Brady led a #1 offense for Tampa. They cant even rationalize another team can run a better offense then their beloved Bucs.

    Thats why they resort to baseless claims, like Bruce stepped away at the bye week and stopped coaching……or that Tom Brady came here and didng want thd coach.

  59. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    Our WR core is lethal. No holes on Defense

  60. captivajim Says:

    why keep Darden verus Johnsom ???

    surprised Bernard is with us ?? he’s not done much of anything since he’s been a Buc ??

  61. Anonymous Says:

    The only positive thing to look forward to when Brady is gone is know nothing Patriot fans who have no team to root for so they just jock ride TB12 will be gone too. That guy List is always wrong yet always loud. Losing him will ease some of the pain of losing Brady

  62. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete - Founder of Says:

    Tyler Johnson!!!!!?!!!!

    Stupid cut.

  63. Christos Says:

    Me too was surprised we kept Bernard, he s injured a lot and i thought White will take his role.
    Cant understand how Darden and Perriman are on the roster and Thompkins and Johnson are not. Perriman always minor injuries and Johnson really showed development this offseason. Thompkins looks like he s got more upside than Darden.

  64. August 1976 Buc Says:

    GOB, there is a difference between overrating and underrating someone.
    I do not overrate BA by any means, but so many want to underrate him, and dismiss what he has done for whatever reasons.
    He has a lifetime Winning Record with 3 teams.
    Very few NFL Head Coaches have a winning record with 1 NFL team, let alone 3 teams.
    Again I do not overrate BA, but just give him his due.
    Has he done some crazy things, oh yes he has.
    But the one outstanding thing with BA is, he is a WINNER.
    And this franchise is better for him coming and being a part of it.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  65. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Jimmyjackoff@ rather be a Brady clinker than a BA clinker. You like others on this site were shatting in your diapers when Brady decided to retire. Oh, what are we going to do now? Boo ooo ooo. I didn’t hear no worries the OLD senile mighty one will ONCE again take the Bucs to the mighty land. Mediocrity is a far cry from the basement which is where the Bucs were headed without TB12. YOUR team missed out on a 3rd SB because BA’s ego got in the way. 7-9 before Brady with a pretty good team and stop with the blame Jamais thing, there are plenty of QB’s in the league at that time worse than him. DENIAL, it’s OK part of your past years of depression.

    Practice today and full squad tomorrow.
    It’s finally ON!!!!!

  68. August 1976 Buc Says:

    List you still have not gone and watched the 2019 season have you? Go watch for yourself, you keep putting your foot in your mouth about anything in 2019. Again you are making comments without honestly knowing what you are saying. Be my guest bro, and actually watch the 2019 season, every game to make actual honest statements. Because you look like more of a blow hard, the more you bring up 2019, not really knowing factually what you are saying.

    GO BUCS!!!


    Buc king Says:
    “I still think tretter would be a smart move”

    He retired.

  70. Mark A Swygert Says:

    Ryan is and never was on waivers. He is a vested veteran, so cutting him makes him a free agent, free to sign with any team with an available roster spot, which we will have in short order as soon as we put Jensen pn the IR (with a designation for possible return). I’m no insider, but my guess is that Ryan was asked to free up a spot, maybe even volunteered to do it because he is a team first guy. So there was no insult. My guess (and unlike most of you arrogant “super pundits”) and I admit this is only a guess, Ryan was only too happy to make a major contribution to the team without having to work up a sweat. I’ll be very disappointed if I’m wrong and he winds up on another team.

  72. CJ1978 Says:

    Hey guys, I’ve been following this site for a few years now and todays back and forth has been pretty interesting to me. I’ve never once posted anything here before, but I just can’t help myself. Growing up I never watched a lot of football outside of the playoffs and the Super Bowl every year and never had a team. After 911 I was getting ready to deploy and happened to have leave over Super Bowl weekend before shipping out. I couldn’t have even named every NFL team at the time, and this game was my introduction to Tom Brady and the Patriots. I decided to root for the underdogs because the team colors and name because it resonated with me as I’d volunteered to deploy and was feeling pretty patriotic myself. Fast forward 20+ years and I’m just enjoying what I believe to be the greatest football career there has been or will ever be finish playing itself out. I never played football and am amazed by what all these guys put themselves through day after day, year after year. I always thought I was a New England fan, and I guess I still have a special place in my heart for the team the made me fall in love with football. When Tom left I found myself secretly checking in on this Tampa Bay Bucs team just to see what he was thinking. Eventually I realized that I was more of a fan of Tom Brady and the culture he brought with him than the patriots. I’m enjoying the ride and I’ve definitely become a huge Tampa Bay fan and will continue to be long after he’s gone. I’m a BA, Jason Licht, Todd Bowles, Byron Leftwich and Tom Brady fan and I believe it took a change in culture for the bucs to start to believe in themselves. It wasn’t just Brady and it wasn’t just arians. There are several people who have made this team what it is and I believe they will start clicking and make a deep run into the playoffs this year and possibly win another one because of all the above mentioned individuals, not in spite of them.

    GO BUCKS!!!!

  73. Joe Says:


    Thanks for being a long-time reader!


    Listn & GOB, I think most BUCS fans are well aware of what Tom Brady has meant to this team getting to and winning a SB. Believe me, we are eternally thankful and when his time comes to move on, we will need to regroup just like any other team would.

    I am not sure what you are trying to get at. Your Patriots are very much in the same boat. Not a single one of those SB wins came without Tom Brady. Correct?

    So it is what it is.

  75. Dennis Says:

    Logan Ryan does not go through waivers so there is no risk of another team claiming him. Anyone prior to 4 years has to pass through waivers. It also needs to be without much guaranteed money and on a 1 year deal. Ryan is literally one of only 2-3 players that this move was even an option for. He will be resigned today once the window opens up for Jensen to be placed on IR.

  76. SB~LV Says:

    Only a few more hours now
    12 noon today names will be flying!

  77. Buc1987 Says:

    List a blowhard?

    No way!

  78. Browsing from DC Says:

    Not worried about Logan Ryan returning (roster spot juggling) but of course there will be other changes. I hope the one person who DOESN’T get cut is Ko.

    Lenny, Vaughan, and White are sufficient in the RB room and can do what Gio does, so I won’t lose sleep if he gets cut.

    The TE room is good as is receiver-wise, but Ko being involved in pass protection and run blocking isn’t something the team should downplay. If BL & TB12 need to make in-game adjustments, and the pass rush or coverage is taking away the air game, “take what the defense gives you” and pound the rock. TB12 doesn’t give a rats arse about passing stats. If he can win by running the ball 75% of the time, it’s fine by him. Just win.

    Who knows? Maybe Ko can actually catch a ball or 2? Meanwhile, he’s a beast as a lead blocker, can be a TB lifesaver in the backfield picking up a Blitzer and receiver out of the backfield on play action.

    I’m not trying to turn the kid into Mike Alstott but I don’t see him as “just another TE”. Out of all the rookies he’s shown me the most all-around impact potential. First and goal and he’s leading the way for a RB? Yes please

    August, my point exactly. Was it Belichick or Brady and it appears the ladder same as Bucs. I give Belichick some credit for taking the flyer and I guess BA the same for signing TB12, but as you stated ALL the Patript SB wins were with Brady, one thing Bucs have over the Pat’s. Bucs1987, once again a well thought out post. NOT! You must be like 13 yrs old.
