NFL Roster Cuts 2014: Buccaneers announce 12 roster cuts, including Jamon Meredith

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially announced 12 roster cuts, including that of Jamon Meredith.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially announced the release of 12 players, all of which had been reported earlier by Greg Auman and Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. The one surprising cut in that group is Jamon Meredith.

Meredith was the most experienced backup on the offensive line, Meredith was set to earn the starting right guard job going into training camp, but quickly lost that to Patrick Omameh and was relegated to backup offensive tackle instead. His versatility could have saved his roster spot, but he was set to make $1,355,000 and had played poorly in recent weeks.

Instead, the Bucs will presumably go with rookie Kevin Pamphile as the top backup at the tackle spots, with newly-traded-for Logan Mankins capable of playing tackle as well. The rest of the offensive line is a bit murkier, but it seems likely that center Josh Allen and guards Kadeem Edwards and Rishaw Johnson make the final roster, too.

Here's the full list of announced cuts so far:

CB Marc Anthony
LB Nate Askew
T Edawn Coughman
CB Kip Edwards
DE T.J. Fatinikun
CB Anthony Gaitor
LB Ka'Lial Glaud
CB Keith Lewis
G Jamon Meredith
OL Andrew Miller
FB Lonnie Pryor
C Jeremiah Warren

With the exception of Jamon Meredith, all of these players are eligible for the practice squad. In addition, Greg Auman reported that Larry English has also been released, but the Bucs have not confirmed that report.
