TAMPA, Fla. -- The Buccaneers apparently are shaking up their roster a bit during their bye week after an 0-4 start.

The team announced Tuesday that receiver Kevin Ogletree and safety Ahmad Black have been released.

The team had high hopes for Ogletree as the third receiver, but he had produced only eight catches in four games.

Black had 12 tackles in four games. His release is a sign that starting safety Mark Barron's hamstring injury is minor.

The Bucs filled one of the roster spots by promoting wide receiver Chris Owusu from the practice squad.
