Tampa Bay Buccaneers waive Raymond Webber per report

According to the NFL Transaction Wire posted at The Sideline View by NFL insider Adam Caplan, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived wide receiver Raymond Webber. The Sideline View generally posts the NFL transaction wire each day, apparently taken from the NFL's own communications.

To me, this is a little disappointing. I was very high on Raymond Webber when he signed as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff, where he led the nation with 1,429 receiving yards on 101 catches and 10 touchdowns. I saw some promise when I looked at Webber's tape, and he backed that up by generating some buzz during the Bucs' training camp last season. Unfortunately, his season was cut off by a hamstring injury in that same training camp, causing him to miss the season.

By cutting Raymond Webber, the Bucs have freed up a roster spot, which they will need to sign any rookies who appeal to them after try-outs this rookie minicamp. By my count the Bucs currently have 88 of their 90 roster spots occupied after the release of John McCargo and Raymond Webber. Because of a change to NFL rules, unsigned draft picks and franchise tagged free agents (in this case, Connor Barth) count against the roster limit.

In related news, the New England Patriots just released wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, according to Ian Rapoprt of NFL Network. Underwood played under Greg Schiano at Rutgers, so it would not be a surprise if the Bucs picked him up off waivers.
