Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster cuts, updates following 2022 training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sort out their roster decisions.

With Tom Brady back for one more year (at least?), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the second-best odds to win Super Bowl, according to DraftKings Sportsbook (+750). They are loaded at the skill positions, and it’s possible we will see the Bucs cut one backup running back, either Giovani Bernard or Ke’Shawn Vaughn, prior to the start of the season.

Here, we’ll keep track of roster cuts for the Buccaneers and what it means for the betting and fantasy football landscape ahead of the 2022 NFL season.

Notable names

  • WR Tyler Johnson

Johnson has been an integral part of the Bucs receiving core the last two seasons, but the addition of Julio Jones, the quick healing of Chris Godwin and the explosive deep threat from Scotty Miller pushed Johnson out.
