Just hours after trimming their 80-man roster down to 75 players, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers parted ways with another player on Tuesday night.
The Bucs have traded defensive end Marques Douglas to the Baltimore Ravens, PewterReport.com is reprting.
According to NFL Network, the Bucs receive a 2009 late-round draft pick and a conditional pick in 2010 that is contingent upon Douglas passing his physical with the Ravens on Wednesday morning.
Douglas joined the Bucs this offseason as an unrestricted free agent. He played with San Francisco (2005-07), New Orleans (2000) and Baltimore (1999, 2001-04).
The 6-foot-2, 293-pound Douglas' base salary was $1 million and his cap value was $2.6 million in 2008. Douglas was not given a signing bonus, but did have a $1.6 million roster bonus. It is unclear whether Douglas received that bonus before being traded to Balitmore on Tuesday night.
