http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/02/10/buccaneers-release-gabe-carimi-three-others/

The Buccaneers added quarterback Mike Kafka to the roster on Monday, but that wasn’t the only roster move in Tampa.

The team announced that they have released four players in addition to signing Kafka. Tackle Gabe Carimi, running back Michael Hill, defensive tackle Derek Landri and quarterback Jordan Rodgers have all been let go.

Carimi, a first-round pick by the Bears in 2011, was traded to the Bucs for a 2014 sixth-round pick before last season. He saw action in 14 games for the Bucs and made three starts, but doesn’t appear that Lovie Smith was interested in giving another chance to a player whose struggles were part of overall offensive line issues that helped grease the skids for Smith’s firing in Chicago.

Hill ran nine times for 23 yards in six games after joining the team during the season, but was arrested for failure to obey a lawful order and resisting arrest in Missouri last month. Landri had nine tackles in nine games as a reserve on the defensive line and Rodgers spent most of the 2013 season on the team’s practice squad.

“@brian_mcintyre: Former Buccaneers guard Gabe Carimi had a $596,187 roster bonus due on 3/13. Overall, today's moves save $2.07M in net cap space.”

Carimi was scheduled to make $1.3M this year. Landri was $1.5M. Rodgers and Hill combined for $1M.None of them had any of it guaranteed. No dead mone...so It looks like we gained an additional $3.8M in cap space....minus whatever they gave Kafka. Which should be the $500K minimum.  So about $3.3M according to sportrac numbers.

the 4 players released count for $3.8M against the cap but now you have to count 52th, 53th, 54th salary and Kafka in the Top 51 salary.

it's only $2-2.5 million in cap space

Bucs should have around  $12-13M in cap space

I'm not sure Rodgers and Hill were top51...

For Carimi it speaks volumes that the head coach who drafted you just 3 years prior lets you go before FA starts.

He was a good college player. I think he just lost interest in football once he got paid.
