Cut City Baby

Evidently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are attempting to clear the decks for free agency. Today, they released five players including linebacker Derrick Brooks, who was a vital cog in the franchise’s lone Super Bowl victory during the 2002 season.

Running back Warrick Dunn, receivers Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard, and linebacker Cato June also met the turk on Wednesday.

The moves help the team save over $10 million on the salary cap and puts them in a great position to get younger, which clearly became an issue down the season’s stretch.

The Bucs are roughly $50 million under the cap thanks to these moves. Buckle your seatbelts folks. Looks like Tampa is ready to spend some money beginning February 27.
