Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2018 roster cuts: Live tracker

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to cut their 90-man preseason roster down to 53 by Saturday afternoon. Check here for all of the live updates.

The next few days won’t be easy for Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter and general manager Jason Licht. They will have to let go of nearly 40 players as they try to build a championship contending roster.

After almost one full day after the preseason finale, Tampa Bay already cut seven players. The team has 31 moves to make to make it to 53. The deadline to trim the roster to 53 players is at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 4.

Check out the latest 53-man roster projection as well as analysis on which bubble players deserve to make the team, and players who might be on the chopping block.

All of the moves thus far have been expected. Most of the players cut joined the team late into training camp or barely saw time in the preseason games.

Confirmed cuts:

Running back Charles Sims

Sims went down with an injury in camp and was waived with an injury settlement. He was in the mix for the final running back spot but undrafted free agent Shaun Wilson will likely assume the third-down back role in 2018.

Defensive tackle Adam Reth

Defensive tackle Nathan Bazata

Tight end Matt Weiser

Safety Josh Liddell

Running back Devine Redding

Wide receiver Donteea Dye

Quarterback Austin Allen

Austin Allen was the fourth quarterback on the roster and didn’t receive many reps in training camp. Tampa Bay had to ensure Ryan Griffin had enough snaps as he will be the backup for the first three weeks of the season. Plus, Jameis Winston needed time to stay fresh before he serves his three-game suspension.

Safety Josh Robinson

This one was a shock. Robinson brings no value as a defensive back, but he has been one of the best special team players. He was a team captain and a fan favorite.

Guard Givens Price

Cornerback Marko Myers

Tight end Tanner Hudson

Defensive tackle DaVonte Lambert

Lambert could be a candidate for the practice sqaud. With the injuries at defensive tackle, it would be smart to have one handy.

Guard Ruben Holcomb

Tackle Jerry Ugokwe

Safety Keith Tandy

Another surprise. Tandy entered camp as the primary backup safety. Rookie Jordan Whitehead may have shown enough during training camp to lock down the role.

Running back Dare Ogunbowale

Ogunbowale was terrific in the preseason. Should be on the practice squad if he doesn’t get claimed.

Defensive end Pat O’Connor

Safety Godwin Igwebuike

Wide receiver Bobo Wilson

Wide receiver Bernard Reedy 

Linebacker Nigel Harris

Nigel Harris was in the middle of the Buccaneers battle for the last two linebacker spots. Cameron Lynch and Jack Cichy just edged him out.

Defensive end Demone Harris

Tackle Cole Boozer

Tackle Brad Seaton

Defensive end Evan Perrizo

Cornerback Javien Elliot

Tackle Jarron Jones

Tackle Cole Gardner

Cornerback Amari Coleman

Longsnapper Garrison Sanborn

Injured Reserve: Devante Bond, Riley Bullough
