Tampa Bay Buccaneers release John McCargo, Raymond Webber

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are doing some post-draft roster shuffling, releasing defensive tackle John McCargo and receiver Raymond Webber. Neither transaction is official yet, but we've confirmed both moves.

McCargo was a stopgap option after the defensive tackle position was decimated by injuries late last season. He was initially signed immediately after Gerald McCoy's season-ending biceps tear in November, only to be released a day later when the Bucs claimed Albert Haynesworth off waivers from the Patriots.

McCargo, a former first-round pick of the Bills, was signed again a few weeks later and worked his way into the rotation when the unit was further depleted. McCargo himself ended the season on injured reserve after a triceps injury.

Webber, according to his agent, has been informed of his release. As an undrafted rookie out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff last season, Webber had a tough break when he suffered a season-ending hamstring injury early in the preseason. That set him back and put him at the end of the line in a large group of young receivers.

We're told Webber is healthy and ready to make a run at another roster should another team give him a shot.
