NFC South: Rendrick Taylor

Tampa Bay Buccaneers trim roster

August, 29, 2011
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just announced a bunch of roster moves. The biggest name on the list was cornerback Ashton Youboty, who was released.

He was signed during camp when the Bucs had some injuries in the secondary. But he also was viewed as possible insurance if Aqib Talib was suspended. The team said Saturday night it has been told by the NFL that Talib will not be suspended during the 2011 season, so that made Youboty expendable.

The Bucs also waived receiver Aundrae Allison, cornerback Vince Anderson, tight end Collin Franklin, defensive end Brandon Gilbeaux, receiver Detron Lewis, punter Robert Malone, receiver Jock Sanders, and fullback Rendrick Taylor. They also waived/injured guard Brandon Carter.

Bucs continue shuffling roster

December, 8, 2010
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who seem to have to re-shape their roster because of injuries every week, are at it again.

In sticking with their youth movement, the Bucs just promoted cornerback D.J. Johnson from the practice squad to take the roster spot of Aqib Talib, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.

Johnson had spent some time with the New York Giants earlier this season before being signed to Tampa Bay’s practice squad Nov. 24. To fill Johnson’s spot on the practice squad, the Bucs signed fullback Rendrick Taylor.

He had been with the Bucs in the preseason before being released. Most recently, Taylor had been with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.

Why the Bucs limiting their open-to-the-public practices to seven is not a good thing.
