Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sort out their roster decisions.

The defending Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be returning all of their key pieces ahead of the 2021 season, but there are a few position battles to watch that will carry on throughout the season. The running back rotation is worth monitoring, with Giovani Bernard joining Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones in the group. The wide receiver situation is worth looking as well, with Antonio Brown and Scottie Miller vying for the No. 3 role. Tampa Bay’s defense will look to maintain speed in its second and third-string players.
