Bucs cut Troupe to make room for Stevens
The Bucs released tight end Ben Troupe to make room for the return of Jerramy Stevens.
Troupe, a former second-round pick by the Titans, signed with the Bucs as a free agent. But he saw little playing time behind Alex Smith and John Gilmore.
Stevens ws activated from the reserve/suspended list. He served a two-game suspension stemming from his DUI convcition in 2007.
Troupe had no receptions in two games with the Bucs. He is not subject to waivers and immediately will become a free agent. The balance of his $605,000 is guaranteed.
