The Buccaneers trimmed their roster to the mandatory 75-player maximum on Tuesday, after beginning their first wave of cuts on Monday. Reserve LB Jacob Cutrera was the most notable name on the most recent list of cuts.
The Buccaneers got their roster down to the mandatory 75-player limit on Tuesday announced the waiving of wide receiver Terriun Crump, linebacker Jacob Cutrera (injured), wide receiver Chris Denton, tight end Mike Shanahan, guard Adam Smith and defensive back Branden Smith, along with the release of tight end Zach Miller.

While no major surprises Cutrera was the biggest name released, playing part of three seasons for the Buccaneers as a reserve linebacker and special teams starter.

Shanahan was just signed on Monday, only to be released today.

On Monday the Buccaneers began their first set of camp cuts waiving wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, defensive end Ernest Owusu, quarterback Adam Weber and defensive end Markus White, and the release of wide receiver Derek Hagan, fullback Spencer Larsen and safety Troy Nolan.

The team also placed cornerback Anthony Gaitor (torn ACL) and running back Michael Smith (torn ligament – foot).

The final round of cuts to get to the 53-player limit is August 31 by 6 p.m. and teams can then begin adding players to the practice squad. Each NFL team can have up to eight players on their practice squad. Players are eligible for the practice squad if they have not accrued a season of free agency credit, or have no been on the active gameday roster for a team for more than nine regular season games.  A player can only spend three seasons on a practice squad.

    I really have to ask... does anyone bother editing these articles before they're posted?

    Shanahans gone...now can we please sign Visanthe Shiancoe so we can have a proven veteran producer at TE!?!?!?!?!?!...Is tht asking too much DOM!?!?!?!?!

    We didn't re-sigh clark, Clark beat out Visanthe in Balt. seems like going backwards?? "The Baltimore Ravens announced they cut veteran tight end Visanthe Shiancoe on Sunday, which doesn't come as a surprise. It was inevitable because he was the odd-man out among the Ravens' tight ends. After the third preseason game, it was apparent that the Ravens' top two tight ends were Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark and their best blocking tight end was Billy Bajema."

    Schiano went to the Bill Belichick School of Debriefing. The federal government calls it waterboarding! Shanahan was last seen leaving OBP mumbling incoherently feeling…..well, sort of violated. The fact that they released him within 24 hours tell you that he was relatively easy to break. I guarantee you that Schiano got the whole Jets playook in two languages! lol

    My guess is that Shanahan had a nagging injury; I don't think he would tell the Bucs anything since he might have a chance to go on the Jets Practice Squad.

    Morgan, I wouldn't say it was all for naught. I'm sure they debriefed him on any new wrinkles to the offense and defense the Jets plan to employ this year. Perhaps even audibles.

    All the hype, stories, articles on Shanahan within the last 24 hrs, all for naught.
