Bucs cut four, move Cadillac to reserve PUP
The Bucs have announced several moves that enable them to get to today's mandatory 75-man roster, waiving linebacker Antoine Cash (injured), safety Donte Nicholson (injured), and receiver Paris Warren. Cornerback Sammy Davis (hip) was placed on injured reserve.
In addition, running back Cadillac Williams has been placed on the Reserve Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning he must remain inactive for at least the first six weeks of the regular season. During that time, he cannot practice with the team. This is not a major surprise given the depth of the offensive backfield and the Bucs' plans to bring Williams along slowly.
Among those who were waived, Cash (neck) and Nicholson (knee) must clear waivers, then would automatically be placed on injured reserve if not claimed. If Warren, who is not injured, clears waivers, he becomes a free agent.
It was somewhat surprising that Warren was the first receiver cut, what with others like Cortez Hankton and longshot Brian Clark remaining on the roster.
