The Bucs make a few roster moves, adding Parrish and cutting Shipley. Parrish will likely be the Bucs' main punt returner.

Jordan Shipley's only noteworthy action for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been a single muffed punt, contributing to a tough loss against the Dallas Cowboys this past week. It appears that that has been his last action, as well, as the Bucs have just cut him to sign wide receiver/punt returner Roscoe Parrish. The Bucs have not as of yet brought in a replacement for Adrian Clayborn, who was placed on injured reserve yesterday, so they still have an open roster spot.

Roscoe Parrish is a veteran who spent almost all of his career with the Buffalo Bills, but has played just 10 games the past 2 seasons because of injuries. Parrish has 1,502 career receiving yards on 134 receiving catches, mostly as a slot receiver. He could contribute in that role, although Arrelious Benn is more likely to take most of the snaps at the position. Parrish is almost certainly to be the Bucs' main punt returner, though, and he has extensive experience at returning punts. He was the Bills' main punt returner for the past seven seasons, and has a career average of 12 return yards per punt, with 3 career return touchdowns.
