2013 Buccaneers Roster

I have always had a habit of creating depth charts for NFL teams. They would either be done before pre-season in order to predict what the roster will be, or be done at some point during the season, to predict what will be done in the upcoming offseason. I have decided to start one now, and would love to hear your opinions.

*Key: (RFA - Restricted Free Agent). (UFA - Unrestricted Free Agent). (R - Rookie). (FA - Free Agent).

*I have also included each players cap hit for the 2013 season; unless they are a RFA or UFA, in which case I put their current salary (Their current salary can dictate their market value for next season, which in turn can estimate their 2013 salary). *Also, in the cases of FA or R, I have filled in the salary of current players occupying those respective positions, which if taken linearly, can estimate the maximum salary that can be spent without increasing the cap figure.
