The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cut two players to start the process of getting down to a 53-man roster. According to Greg Auman, cornerback Keith Lewis, linebacker Ka'lial Glaud and fullback Lonnie Pryor were all released today. Lewis was an undrafted rookie out of Virginia-Lynchburg, while Lonnie Pryor was a local favorite signed late last year. Glaud was an undrafted rookie out of Rutgers last year who spent 7 games on the roster primarily as a special teams player.

Lewis actually recorded an interception yesterday, but that wasn't enough to keep him on the roster. Lonnie Pryor lost the battle at the fullback position to Jorvorskie Lane, a competition he never really threatened to win. All three players are still eligible for the practice squad.

The Bucs have to cut 19 more players before Saturday, 4:00 p.m. ET to finish their initial round of roster cuts. And then they'll continue to tweak the bottom of the roster as they get the opportunity to claim waiver wire players they like, and add some of their own cuts and other players to the practice squad.
