Bucs Cut Anthony Collins

The latest example of March buyer’s remorse comes out of Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers released left tackle Anthony Collins, Tampa Bay Times reporter Rick Stroud tweets.

This comes less than a year after the Bucs signed Collins to a five-year deal worth $30MM.

Like about everything for the Bucs last year, Collins’ season there did not go well. A former fourth-round pick in 2008 and part-time starter with the Bengals, Collins missed time with injuries last year but rated as a low-end blocker when on the field, per Pro Football Focus (subscription required).

Collins was the sixth-highest-paid player on the Bucs’ payroll and second-highest-paid offensive lineman behind only Logan Mankins. Collins’┬árelease will cost the team $3MM in dead money while saving $3MM, according to OverTheCap.
