As the Buccaneers prepare for their Monday night matchup against the Panthers, they’ve made a minor roster move. According to Roy Cummings of WFLA News Channel 8 in Tampa Bay (via Twitter), the Bucs have promoted linebacker Cameron Lynch to the active roster. To make room on the roster, the team has waived wideout Jeremy Butler.
Lynch, a 2015 undrafted free agent out of Syracuse, spent last season with the Rams. The linebacker contributed mostly on special teams, collecting four tackles in 16 games. The 23-year-old was cut during the Rams’ final roster cuts, and he landed on the Buccaneers’ practice squad in mid-September. Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times notes (via Twitter) that the Bucs decided against promoting a defensive lineman, an indication that one of Robert Ayers, Noah Spence, or Clinton McDonald should be able to play on Monday.
The Buccaneers promoted Butler to the active roster earlier this week. The former undrafted free agent previously spent time with the Ravens, where he collected 31 receptions for 363 yards in eight games last season.
With the draft now in the books, we can expect plenty of roster shuffling in the coming days and weeks, as teams ready their 90-man rosters for training camp. Here are Monday’s minor moves from around the league:
The Broncos have waived offensive tackles Paul Cornick and Jeremy Kelley, according to the Denver Post (Twitter link). Troy Renck of the Denver Post (Twitter link) expects the Bears to have interest in Cornick, who started six games in Dener last season. Of course, new Bears head coach John Fox and OC Adam Gase were previously with the Broncos.
Syracuse linebacker Cameron Lynch is the latest rookie free agent to join the Rams, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Twitter link).
The 49ers have waived linebacker Chase Thomas with a non-football injury designation, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Thomas tore his ACL in the offseason.
The Buccaneers have claimed offensive lineman Reid Fragel off waivers from the Falcons, per Wilson (via Twitter). The move reunites the ex-Falcon with his old offensive coordinator, DirkKoetter.
The Packers have cut offensive lineman Joe Madsen, tweets Wilson. Madsen finished the year on the team’s practice squad before signing a futures contract.
The Colts have cut several players from their roster today, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, who tweets that the team waived wide receiver Kadron Boone, defensive end Gannon Conway, offensive lineman Matt Hall, and former Olympic medalist Jeff Demps.
Washington has parted ways with veteran edge defender Gabe Miller, according to his agent Brett Tessler (Twitter link). The former fifth-round pick saw his first regular-season NFL action last season.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean (Twitter link) adds Maryland linebacker Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil to the list of UDFAs signed by the Titans.
