Making room for Fournette, Bucs release Kyle Love

A move had to be made, and it was...

Depending on when you went to bed, you might have woken up to the news Leonard Fournette is about to become the newest member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Of course, this raises a lot of questions, mainly in the running backs room. The team now has Fournette, Ronald Jones, LeSean McCoy, Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Dare Ogunbowale, and Raymond Calais. All of whom have been thought of as potential contributors to the Bucs’ 2020 campaign in one form or another.

Since there’s no way Tampa Bay would carry six running backs on their active roster - right? - something’s got to give. For now, a roster spot has been given, to accommodate the addition of the latest refugee from the toxic swamp that is the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it came from the defensive line room.

Early Thursday morning, the Buccaneers announced the release of veteran defensive lineman, Kyle Love.

Good news for those on the defensive line who remain fighting for a job. Bad news for Love who previously played for the New England Patriots with new Buccaneers additions, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to build an impressive arsenal for the 2020 NFL Season, there are plenty more moves to come. Especially with cut-day coming fast.
