The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are cutting down to a 53-man roster, as is every other team in the NFL. We'll be tracking their Saturday moves here, which are likely to include a few waiver claims in addition to the cuts they're making. The Bucs are, as always, looking for help at defensive end and along the interior offensive line in particular, though no particularly interesting players became available.

The Bucs don't have to make a lot of today, though. They cut 10 players on Friday, and placed Kenny Bell on injured reserve. They have to make another 11 moves to get to the 53-man roster limit -- 12 if we count the imminent but not yet finalized signing of cornerback Tim Jennings. Two of those moves are likely to be placing Garrett Gilkey and Larry English on injured reserve.

Tracking Sunday's moves

12:31 p.m.: And the final cut for today is Lawrence Sidbury Jr., according to Adam Caplan of ESPN -- which leaves the Bucs with just three defensive ends, unless you count William Gholston.

12:23 p.m.: Kaelin Clay, Jude Adjei-Barimah and Ryan Delaire are also gone, per Rick Stroud.

12:18 p.m.: The Bucs have made four more moves: linebacker Josh Keyes, per Greg Auman. In addition, Edawn Coughman was waived and Larry English and Garrett Gilkey head to injured reserve.

11:15 a.m.: Donteea Dye is cut, per Greg Auman. Another likely practice squad candidate.

10:52 a.m.: Isaiah Frey's gone, per Josina Anderson. That leaves Sterling Moore as the primary slot cornerback.

10:15 a.m.: Took a while, but we have Sunday's first cut: undrafted rookie DT Caushaud Lyons, per Greg Auman. He'll likely head to the practice squad if he makes it through waivers.

5:10 a.m.: Tracker started. Keep an eye out here for any moves.
