Buccaneers | Team has some cutting to do at wide receiver

Tue, 04 Jul 2006 08:54:30 -0700

Buccaneers.com reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently have 14 wide receivers on their roster. The team normally carries six wide receivers so they have some cutting to do if they are going to maintain six for the 2006 season. Clearly, WRs Joey Galloway and Michael Clayton are good bets to earn spots. WRs David Boston and Ike Hilliard are the most experienced of the rest. Three of the candidates as of late June are 2005 draftees, WRs Larry Brackins, Paris Warren and J.R. Russell, which means the Bucs are looking forward to taking another extended look at them. WR Edell Shepherd remains an intriguing receiver for the team. The rest of the wide receivers are free agent additions and first-year players.
