Tampa Bay Buccaneers waive Derrick Roberson, Jayme Mitchell leaves squad

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made two roster moves today: cornerback Derrick Roberson was waived, while defensive end Jayme Mitchell has left the squad. Roberson was a street free-agent and former Rutgers player who had spent some time with the Bucs before, but he had done nothing in training camp to distinguish himself. Mitchell hadn't done much either, but he did have a lot of experience in the NFL as a seventh-year veteran, and 13 starts last season. Apparently, the NFL (or Schiano) life isn't worth it for him anymore.

The Bucs have not announced any new signings to replace these two players, and given the fact that the first preseason game is just a day away they may wait to alter their squad until after that preseason game.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed cornerback James Rogers out of Michigan and defensive tackle Teryl White out of North Carolina to replace Mitchell and Roberson. Both are undrafted rookie free agents.

The Bucs play the Miami Dolphins in Miami Friday, kicking off at 7:30 p.m. as the first actual NFL play of the season for Tampa Bay will start. Can't wait!
