Bucs Cut Paris Warren

Posted Aug 26, 2008 by Anwar S. Richardson

Tampa Bay has officially reduced its roster by five players, with WR Paris Warren the most notable cut.

The other players released are:

LB Antoine Cash (injured) - neck

CB Sammy Davis (injured) - hip flexor

S Donte Nicholson (injured) - knee

Davis was placed on injured reserve, while Cash and Nicholson are “waive injured”, meaning if they clear waivers, they will be also be placed on injured reserve.

In addition, the Bucs have placed RB Cadillac Williams on the reserve physically unable to perform list. He is can not be activated in the first six weeks.

Warren’s cut does not come as a surprise. He was a standout last year before breaking his foot during the final preseason game. Warren attempted to comeback this year, but did not have the same speed he possessed before that injury.

shame…it just goes to show how tenuous an nfl player’s shelf life is…i hope he can hook up with another team…he deserves better than this…perhaps, oakland…they were hit hard by the “injury bug” vs. arizona and are actively looking for wide-outs…

Not exactly anonymous players. If they clear waivers, does the team have the option of putting them on the PUP list? I can certainly see an instance where the team might want to re-sign any of the 3 defenders at some point during the season.

Curious why Davis went on IR but Nicholson and Cash have to clear waivers first.  What is the monetary difference to the BUCS?  ANybody know?  As usual, reporting is never complete.

Don’t understand why they didn’t release Simm’s. The Bucs have no intention of keeping him. I don’t see another team giving the Bucs anything in a trade for Simm’s. All this does is reduce Simm’s chances to hook up with another team. Why?

I’ll tell you why they didn’t release Simms…there are teams that want him. If you want anything for him you have to make him part of your roster, thus making trading for him the only way they will get him, and they WILL get something for him, beieve me.

This is a Business. 100% Pure Business. Check your feelings at the Door. It’s what have you done for me lately. It’s not personal, but the Managers care about 2 things. The success of the Business they manage & their own paycheck. Who is Chris Simms? Paris Warren? Cash? Nicholson? Davis still has some value to them as a CB in the future. The rest are a dime a dozen. Ticket sales are down & Chris Simms & these other guys won’t fill the stands. Sad but true. Has anyone noticed how the Jet’s Sales & Attendance is going. I bet it’s off the charts.

Who is Simm and what is it of his that they didn’t release?

Purrrrrrrrrrrrrfect!!!  Paris Warren got caught up in the big, fast receiver overload.  He’ll get picked up with another team or when a Buc goes down, may get signed again.  Adam Hayward needs a good look at LB.  Can’t wait till opening day.

Releasing Parrish Warren was a mistake. I hope the Bucs don’t have to play against this guy because he catches everything thrown his way. Bucs kept Hilliard, who, is a very good go to receiver is getting up in age and commands a higher salary. I would have kept Warren and traded both Hilliard and Clayton who does not deliver in the clutch. I know, Clayton made two catches last week, One was very good, the other one any reader here could have made, and he dropped the other opportunity. I guess I don’t like players who play one year in four! I think Clark should get plenty of playing time, because he has great hands as well. Trouble with Allen and Gruden is the team expended a no. 1 on Clayton and they are blind to his failures!

Daisy, it’s time for your refrain:  “They should have cut that bum Clayton instead of Paris.  Gruden is an idiot.”  Clayton is not a bad guy to have on the team even if his hands aren’t the best.  T.O. drops plenty of passes, but he’s still good.  Clayton can at least act like a 3rd FB on running plays, block downfield for other WRs, and, hopefully, get back to his old form.  He looks sharper.  I imagine that 1st drop was due to either nerves or knowing that he wouldn’t make a 1st down either way.  I didn’t like to see him drop it, but, if you remember, it was 3rd down and it would have been several yards short of the 1st anyway.

Have those of you supporting Paris seen him practice a lot this year?  I assume he’s not playing as well.  He hardly played in the preseason and only had 2 catches.  They wouldn’t cut him if he were playing like he did last year.  If you think they would, why did they keep him around last year?  It sounds like he lost a step and I think Stovall’s emergence probably contributed to that move, too.

The reason Cash and Nicnolson had to pass through waivers first is because neither of them have accrued 4 or more years of service, Sammy Davis has.

Anybody that thinks cutting “Parrish Warren” is a mistake knows nothing about what they’re talking about.  First of all, his name is Paris (though it fits better on beaufiful/brainless heiresses), and second he is not very good and never has been.  He has only excelled in preseason games against 3rd and 4th string competition.

Gruden made reference to the fact, that Paris is an NFL caliber reciever, but he has still not regained his full speed. I like the Hilton comment, funny. I also like the idea about trying to aquire Boldin. I like Clayton, he’s a tough blocker & smart player, but Boldin is explosive & would sure fill the void from Michael’s departure. Either way, I think Clayton returns to form & proves many doubters wrong. Michael is a team player where Boldin seems to be more about himself. Maybe we can have both. I’m hoping one day we get Knowshon Moreno or Percy Harvin. They have serious talent & speed.

Just wanted to say that #1 I’m female, and #2 I love the “Bucs”.  I never miss a game on TV.  2 things.  One will someone explain to me what the term “clear waivers” means?  The other thing is does any one think Gruden will allow any of our Quaterbacks to throw a really long pass, I am so tired of watching these little dunks.

Doreen Johnson, clearing waivers means a player hasn’t been picked up by another team after being waived.  I think all teams have like 24 hours to grab a player who has been released before the original team can put him on their practice squad or something.  The Bucs run the west coast offense, which consists mostly of short forward passes, screens, and runs.  We will see more longer ones with Galloway and Bryant in there.  Also, neither Garcia nor Griese has a strong arm, so we don’t get a lot of long passes from them.  It’s usually a bit frightening when either throws a long one anyway.  McCown, Simms, and Johnson have stronger arms so we should see longer ones in future years.

I think Gruden is holding back the plays. That is why there is so many simple run plays & 5 yd dink & dunk passes. He & Monti both said they weren’t going to show their cards in the pre-season. When we play the Saints, you should see it start to open up with Galloway, & Garcia can still chunk it 45 yards or so but usually 25 or 30 is about the max we’ll see. The Saints’ secondary isn’t great & hope to see some good offense from the Bucs. Defense too. Go Bucs!!!

Paris Warren is an excellent player. BIG BIG MISTAKE. Things happen for a reason, I can assure you this isn’t the end of his career. Good Luck Paris, God’s brought you too far to leave you. Rest up, and I want to see you in the Super Bowl in a few years. Lots of Love.
