The Tampa Bay Buccaneers trimmed their roster from 88 to 73 players on Tuesday. Among the cuts were three 2004 NFL Draft picks - tight end Nate Lawrie, fullback Casey Cramer and cornerback Lenny Williams. The Bucs also placed guard Matt O'Dwyer on the PUP list and put defensive end Lamar King on injured reserve.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released the following players on Tuesday to get down to the required number of no more than 73 players on their roster. The NFL specifies that teams cut their rosters down to 65 players by 4:00 p.m. ET today, but the Bucs have eight NFL Europe roster exemptions.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed defensive end Lamar King on injured reserve, which ends his 2004 season, and also put guard Matt O'Dwyer on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. O'Dwyer, who is still recovering from a pectoral injury he suffered in July, can return to the team after six games if he is healthy.
