A couple days ago, speculation circulated that the Buccaneers would attempt to trade veteran guard Davin Joseph. Apparently they couldn’t find a taker. Joseph has been released, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Times (via Twitter).
Joseph, 30, was drafted by the Bucs in the second round of the 2006 draft and started 99 of the 100 games he played for the franchise. Joseph was a Pro Bowler in 2011, but missed the 2012 season with a torn patellar tendon and was not the same player last season despite starting all 16 games. He was scheduled to count $6MM against the cap in 2014.
