UPDATED September 7 at 9:00 a.m.

The Buccaneers met the 4:00 p.m. Saturday deadline and got their roster down to 53 players. In doing so the team had to make some tough decisions of who to keep and who to let go. The COVID-19 pandemic situation has changed much of the normalcy in the NFL this year, including expanded practice squads that include now 15 players.

The Buccaneers originally signed RB Raymond Calais, the team’s seventh-round pick, to the practice squad, but the Los Angeles Rams signed Calais to the team’s 53-man roster to serve as the Rams’ kick returner. Tampa Bay originally signed quarterback Reid Sinnett, an undrafted free agent signing in April, to the practice squad, but released him to make room for new kicker Greg Joseph.

Tampa Bay’s practice squad currently stands at 15 players with room for one more.

Like the signing of Josh Rosen. OC knows him and must think it’s worth a look. Notice Ogunbowale is not on list.

Ogunbawale meeting with Raiders amongst other teams. He has good tape from last year and is young with experience as a captain on special teams.

I also notice that they did not put Gay on the list “just in case” as some folks speculated they might. PR reports that they have signed another kicker, Greg Joseph, instead. Too bad for Matt I guess! I admire both Jason Licht and Bruce Arians for their willingness to jettison players who don’t work out. This seems to be true regardless of the player’s draft position or however they were obtained. BA has emphasized more than once that he believes in forever churning his roster at every position in order to always be fielding the best that can be found. Together they have assembled a “dream team” (… Read more »

Rosen IMO is a good pick up. He has been on TERRIBLE TEAMS. Learning from Brady on how to be a pro Quarterback. Go Bucs

Me too. Always liked Rosen. Coming out of college, all I heard was the comparisons to Rodgers as far as his arm, spiral, accuracy. The talent is no no doubt there. You’re right though, he’s played on some miserable teams. This is the best offense he’s been a part of by a mile. It’s a no risk high reward pickup

You ALWAYS liked Rosen? No doubt he has talent? Are frickin joking???

That guy is god awful. He is one of the worst first round QBs in the history of the NFL.

He’s right there with Ryan Leaf, Jamarcus Russell, Christian Ponder, EJ Manuel, Brady Quinn, JP Losman and, of course, Blaine Gabbert (except without all the elite arm strength, elite physical size, or field general leadership).

Love the Josh Rosen signing! That could be our long term QB a couple of years from now.
