The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have to cut their roster down to 75 players today, which means they have to waive five more players before 4:00 p.m. ET after waiving ten yesterday. We'll be tracking all of the cuts today, and noting any that might be of interest to the Bucs, who have first waiver priority.

11:19 a.m.: The Bucs waived wide receiver Robert Herron and cornerback Leonard Johnson while placing defensive tackle Akeem Spence on PUP to get to the roster limit, the team announced. That's in addition to releasing Michael Koenen and waiving Josh Allen.

10:37 a.m.: The Dolphins just released former Pro Bowl punter Brandon Fields. Iiiiinteresting.

10:31 a.m.: The Bucs are bringing in cornerback Tim Jennings for a visit.

9:22 a.m.: The Bucs are waiving center Josh Allen, per Greg Auman. Allen hasn't been healthy this preseason, thus making his chance to make the roster nil. He could be brought back once he's fully healthy.

9:20 a.m.: Jenna Laine of Sports Talk Florida reports the Bucs are trying to find an offensive lineman in trade. Our analysis of why this is not a good idea here.

7:44 a.m.: Michael Koenen has been released, according to Greg Auman.

7:17 a.m.: Greg Auman points out that the Bucs can save one roster spot by placing Akeem Spence on PUP, which means they'd only have to cut four players today.

7:08 a.m.: An unconfirmed report by Christian Shanafelt says the Bucs will release Robert Herron. That cut would not come as a massive surprise as Herron didn't do anything after the first preseason game and has struggled with drops throughout his career. He's explosive, but the Bucs have a number of undrafted rookies looking equally explosive, and they have managed to catch balls consistently.

So far, the Bucs have cut ten players, most notably Joey Iosefa and Karl Schmitz, and the team has traded Tim Wright for a kicker. We'll update this post with anything that happens today, and you can follow media tweets below.
