Buccaneers roster 2015: All 53 players, practice squad and more

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cut down their roster to 53 players, and then added a few more players -- and cut a few more. All of those moves have resulted in what is close to a final 53-man roster for opening day, 2015: Sunday, September 13. You can find all the details below.

Keep in mind that this roster is not actually final. There will be further mutations over the next couple of days and the rest of the season, but the main contours of the players the Bucs will line up throughout the 2015 NFL season should be visible. The only move of significance the Bucs could make would be trading for an edge rusher -- but even that is fairly unlikely.
