NFL teams are allowed a maximum of 90 players on the roster during the offseason, and Monday’s addition of 13 undrafted free agents put the Buccaneers over the limit. Or, at least it did when those 13 young men arrived in Tampa on Thursday and officially put pen to paper.
That necessitated some additional roster moves by the Buccaneers, which was taken care of on Thursday afternoon. The Bucs released the following three players:
- G Derek Hardman
- DT Corvey Irvin
- CB James Rogers
In addition, TE Drake Dunsmore and K Nate Kaeding have elected to retire.
