Buccaneers re-sign DL Wallace Gilberry, release G Julian Vandervelde, announce practice squad


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to shake up their roster. This time, they've re-signed defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry after releasing him two days ago. To make room on the roster for Gilberry, the team has released recently signed G Julian Vandervelde. Gilberry can play both defensive end and defensive tackle and looked decent during the preseason. Apparently, the Bucs have decided that carrying just four defensive tackles, one of them with injury issues, was a really bad idea.

In addition, the Bucs have announced their practice squad - for now. It consists of linebackers Jacob Cutrera and J.K. Schaffer, wide receivers Bert Reed and Dale Moss, tight end Drake Dunsmore, defensive end Markus White and quarterback Adam Weber. Cutrera and Dunsmore spent the offseason with the Bucs, while the other players are new to the roster. Schaffer is an undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati who spent the offseason with the Jaguars. Bert Reed is another undrafted rookie, coming from FSU. Markus White was a 2011 seventh-round pick with the Washington Redskins. Adam Weber was an undrafted free agent for the Broncos in 2011, who played his college football at Minnesota.

Finally, Dale Moss may be the most intriguing player. He played college football at South Dakota state, but only for a single year. Instead, he was a basketball player for four years. He displayed some of that intriguing athleticism during the preseason with the Green Bay Packers, and could be a developmental player to keep an eye on.
