The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced their final roster cuts. The complete list of roster cuts and contract terminations is as follows.

S Sean Baker
CB Deveron Carr
T Jace Daniels
LB Dom DeCicco
LS Andrew DePaola
K Derek Dimke
WR David Douglas
LB Ka'lial Glaud
S Cody Grimm
P Chas Henry
DT Lazarius Levingston
DT Matthew Masifilo
DT Andre Neblett
TE Danny Noble
WR Chris Owusu
T Mike Remmers
CB Mason Robinson
C/G Cody Wallace
G Roger Allen
DT Gary Gibson
WR Jordan Norwood

Furthermore, the Buccaneers placed kicker Lawrence Tynes on the non-football injury while offering to pay his full salary.

The surprising news here is that the Buccaneers will go into the season with just three defensive tackles and six defensive ends, although a few of those defensive ends can play three-technique on passing downs if necessary. Gerald McCoy, Akeem Spence and Derek Landri are your three defensive tackles, with William Gholston, Steven Means and Trevor Scott all making the roster.

Another surprising roster casualty is Chris Owusu, who has been injured since the first preseason game but got rave reviews all offseason long. The Buccaneers will go into the season with just five receivers on the roster, with Eric Page being the likely return specialist. A final small surprise is the release of Cody Grimm, who is almost certainly going to get picked up by the Washington Redskins.
