Bucs let go of Gabe Carimi, three others

Bucs let Carimi, three others go

TAMPA — The Bucs cut four players on Monday, waiving offensive lineman Gabe Carimi, running back Michael Hill and quarterback Jordan Rodgers and releasing defensive tackle Derek Landri.

The team also confirmed the signing of quarterback Mike Kafka, a former Eagles backup.

Carimi is the most surprising cut — last summer the Bucs gave the Bears a sixth-round pick in this year's draft for him. He was a first-round pick by Chicago in 2011 (when Lovie Smith coached there). Last season he had three starts.

Landri started one game last year and had nine tackles. Hill played sparingly and was arrested last month in Missouri, charged with resisting arrest after an alleged bar fight in his hometown. Rodgers was on the Bucs' practice squad most of last season.

Carimi was due a $592,187 roster bonus next month, and Landri was due a base salary of $1.5 million had he made the roster.
