The roster cuts keep on coming. According to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, offensive linemen Jermarcus Hardrick and Moe Petrus have both been cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cummings notes the players' agent as his source, so this should be pretty reliable. Neither player had done much in the preseason, which makes their release no real surprise. The Bucs do lack quality depth along the offensive line, however, these players were never likely to help fill that need.
With the release of these two players, we now have reports of eight players being cut: S Larry Asante, RB Mossis Madu, DT Frank Okam, CB James Rogers, LB Rennie Curran, DT Amobi Okoye and now OL Jermarcus Hardrick and OL Moe Petrus. That means the Bucs need to cut 14 more players by 9 p.m. today. Then, they'll undoubtedly cut a few more as they pick other players off the waiver wire or sign a few veteran free agents.
