Roster moves usually come in twos, but the Buccaneers made a single maneuver on Friday morning, leaving an open spot to be filled on the 53-man list.
The Bucs have waived first-year DE Markus White, who just last week was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. White has had a few such moves this year.
The team first grabbed the former Florida State for their practice squad during the opening week of the season, after he had been let go by the Redskins. White had been drafted by Washington the year before and spent most of his rookie season as a game-day inactive, though he did get in on two games. After joining the Bucs, he went back to D.C. when the Redskins signed him straight off Tampa Bay’s practice squad to their own active roster. White was later released again, and re-signed by the Bucs to their practice squad, getting the aforementioned promotion a few days later.
All of which is to say: There’s a spot open on the 53-man roster. The Bucs did not immediately fill it on Friday, but are almost sure to do so before the game on Sunday. Stay tuned.
