Buccaneers | Deese Causing Cap Hit Despite Release

The St. Petersburg Times reports former Tampa Bay Buccaneers OT Derrick Deese is causing the Buccaneers a salary cap hit, despite his earlier release. Deese filed a grievance with the union, claiming he was injured at the time of his release, but the Buccaneers insist he had been cleared to play. Because of the grievance, the Bucs may have to absorb half the $1.725 million base salary he was expected to earn in 2005 on their salary cap until the matter is resolved.
