Buccaneers released veteran LB Deone Bucannon this morning, before they head to London for Sunday’s game against the Panthers, per source. The former Cardinals’ first-round pick is expected to get a chance elsewhere.
Source: Former first-round DB Deone Bucannon is getting released by the #Bucs today. The team is set to leave for London, but he’ll become a free agent.
By releasing Deone Bucannon this morning, the Buccaneers now are in line to get a 3rd-round compensatory pick in the 2020 draft for losing Kwon Alexander to 49ers. It’s complex why, but basically the Bucs now have lost more free agents than they signed (lost 5, signed 4). https://t.co/p00RTjGnWO
To fill the roster spot left by Deone Bucannon’s release, the #Bucs signed LB Noah Dawkins off the #Bengals practice squad, source said.
Bucs release LB Deone Bucannon
He’s only played 8 snaps this season but the Giants were interested in him this offseason. Maybe he’s completely fell off but I’d take him over Nate Stupar any day of the week. Has safety experience so should be an upgrade in coverage
From a cap perspective, any players Giants would sign would be veteran minimum deals that more than likely would swap out for existing non-guaranteed contracts.
Deone Bucannon just made $2.5 million guaranteed from Bucs. If he wants to be with Giants, they'd make it work.
By cutting Deone Bucannon before Week 10, the Bucs free up a 3rd round 2020 comp pick for Kwon Alexander.
It took a while, but the Bucs eventually came around to avoiding canceling such a high compensatory free agent with a much lover valued one. https://t.co/VsgC90Zm97
One more on this, provided I have my numbers right: Deone Bucannon, if given the minimum salary, would be the exact cap hit as ... Nate Stupar. https://t.co/10KCzXXEfo
Given the Packers' lack of depth at off-ball linebacker, adding a veteran like Deone Bucannon would make some sense. https://t.co/zFkvAep8JB
So here's why cutting Deone Bucannon also makes sense for the Bucs: they net a 2020 third-round compensatory pick by doing it, a source confirmed. https://t.co/EJVDHN4axg
Before the Bucs/Panthers Thursday night broadcast in week two, NFL Network analysts highlighted Deone Bucannon as a piece of the #Bucs defense. He played three snaps in week one. These are paid analysts and former NFL players trying to educate viewers on the team.
The #Bucs essentially traded Deone Bucannon for a late 3rd-Round pick this morning.
I'm all for bringing Deone Bucannon in. I like the idea of having two weapons on the defense like him and JP. https://t.co/SSxXdOTvmt
Bettcher may see Deone Bucannon as an older less athletic Jabrill Peppers. #Giants
i thought Deone Bucannon was good.... must be in decline early. havent kept up with him recently but i guess he's awful now or something
O Tampa Bay Buccaneers dispensou o ILB/S Deone Bucannon.
