Bucs begin making cuts; Mossis Madu among them



With the NFL's roster reduction deadline less than 24 hours away, the Bucs have begun making some of their cuts.

We’ve confirmed through the agent of running back Mossis Madu that he has been among those released. Madu, unlike last season when he was cut, cannot join the team’s practice squad because he no longer is eligible (he later joined the active roster and spent more than the maximum number of weeks there).

Earlier today, it was reported elsewhere that safety Larry Asante was released. Asante was in a battle with rookie Keith Tandy and veteran Cody Grimm.

The Bucs have to reduce their roster from 75 players to 53 by 9 p.m. on Friday.
