Former Bulls DE Selvie has short stay with Bucs

Former USF defensive end George Selvie's tenure with the Bucs was short-lived, as the free-agent signee was cut after the team's rookie minicamp this weekend. Tampa Bay had used two draft picks on defensive ends in last month's draft, making it harder for the former All-American to make the team's final roster.

"I had really been looking forward to returning to Tampa to play but that the team has chosen to go in a different direction," Selvie wrote on his page at Twitter.com. "I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity from the Glazers, Mark Dominik and Greg Schiano. I sincerely appreciate all the support fans in Tampa have shown me since my arrival."

Selvie, who played for the Jaguars this past season, will now try to latch on with another team. He wasn't the only Bulls alum cut loose by the Bucs over the weekend -- defensive tackle Richard Clebert, who had signed a "futures" contract with team after the season, was also cut, limited by a calf injury in practice.

USF's Evan Landi remains with the team as an undrafted rookie; running back Lindsey Lamar, safety Jon Lejiste and guard Jeremiah Warren worked out as tryout players at the rookie minicamp, but weren't among the players the Bucs signed after the weekend workouts.
