The Bucs have announced their four protected practice squad players ahead of their Week 5 tilt against the Dolphins. This week they have chosen kicker Jose Borregales, safety Troy Warner, tight end Codey McElroy and cornerback Rashard Robinson.

It’s the fourth week in a row for Borregales. He has been protected every week but Week 1, as he was still on the active roster and waived after the deadline. Robinson sees his third straight protection. He has been elevated the past two games for the Bucs, contributing on special teams. Due to league rules he can only be elevated once more. After that he would have to be signed to the active roster in order to dress for game day. The rules state a player can be eveleted twice unless it is to take the spots of active players on the reserve/COVID list.  Robinson was designated as such Week 3.

McElroy will be protected for the first time this season. Tight end Deon Yelder has been a mainstay on the protection list each week. McElroy was elevated to the roster Sunday and saw four snaps on offense including a red zone target. While safety Troy Warner receives his second protection of the season.

Each week every team can protect up to four players from the practice squad. This keeps other teams from being able to sign away those protected players. Protection starts on Tuesday and runs until after each team’s game that week until the following Tuesday. Unprotected players can choose to sign with another team’s active roster at any time, while protected players may only do so once their protection is up each week.

All reading this does for some reason is remind me Khalil Davis didn’t clear waivers, which I never expected him to for a second. It still pisses me off the Bucs couldn’t think of another way. I’ve heard putting Gronk on IR (?) for 3 weeks would have done it. At least 4 teams tried to pick him up and it would’ve been more if the other teams thought they’d have a chance I bet. What an idiotic move imo.

It sure was a head scratcher. I know Gronks out, but I didn’t see McElroy do much this preseason. Hudson outplayed him. Throwing to him in the end zone was also mind boggling. I haven’t heard McLendon’s name mentioned for making any plays this year. Keeping a washed up D linemen, and letting a young draft pick go was also an idiotic move.
