NFC South: Chris Bradwell
The Bucs have topped the rest of the division by getting their roster down to 52 players, one less than the league maximum. That’s because safety Tanard Jackson has been placed on the suspended list for the first four games of the season.
The Bucs released tackle Anthony Alabi, cornerback Kyle Arrington, defensive tackle Chris Bradwell, center Rob Bruggeman, defensive end Jarriett Buie, safety Steve Cargile, receiver Patrick Carter, defensive tackle Rashaad Duncan, defensive end Louis Holmes, running back Kareem Huggins, cornerback Darrell Hunter, tackle James Lee, tight end Jason Pocias, tight end Ryan Purvis, linebacker Bo Ruud and receiver Mario Urrutia. Safety Donte Nicholson was waived with an injury settlement.
Tackle Xavier Fulton was placed on the injured reserve list.
Kicker Matt Bryant, fullback Jameel Cook, receiver Cortez Hankton and receiver Marcus Maxwell had their contracts terminated.
