The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cut down to their first 53-man roster of the 2011 season. This isn't the final roster yet, as the Bucs are sure to add a number of players over the next days. Last year, the Bucs picked up eventual starters Legarrette Blount and Ted Larsen on waivers after the final roster cuts. They're sure to pick up a number of players in the next few days.
Meanwhile, the Bucs have a lack of players at some roster spots, and an excess of players at others. They have only two tight ends on the roster, while Greg Olson likes to run a tight-end heavy offense. The Bucs are likely to add a player there, while they have a massive surplus of defensive backs. They have five safeties and seven cornerbacks, and could surely stand to lose one.
Quarterback (2): Josh Freeman, Josh Johnson
