Bucs still making roster moves

TAMPA – In the NFL there really is no such thing as a final roster cut down. Buccaneers offensive tackle Bradley Sowell and defensive tackle Wallace Gilberry learned that the hard way Saturday.
Less than 14 hours after surviving the Bucs final roster trimming both were escorted off the field just a few minutes into practice and told they had been cut.
The Bucs still have not announced who will replace them but former Eagles guard Julian Vandervelde will likely fill one of the spots.
Vandervelde tweeted earlier today that he was leaving Philadelphia after being let go by the Eagles on Friday and is headed to Tampa.
The Bucs have also signed a few players to their practice squad, including former FSU receiver Bert Reed and and former Washburn center Brian Folkerts.
It also appears as though tight end Drake Dunsmore, a seventh-round pick of the Bucs in thios year’s draft, and linebacker Jacob Cutrera, will be a part of the practice squad. Both participated in practice with the Bucs on Saturday, but more moves are coming so it’s still too soon to know if their stay will be a permanent one.
