Bucs keep all four quarterbacks

Not that there was much doubt, but Cadillac Williams completed his impressive comeback Saturday from his second torn patella tendon and made Tampa’s 53-man roster. 

A little more surprising in Tampa was their decision to keep all four quarterbacks, including
Luke McCown and Josh Johnson.  (Starter Byron Leftwich and first-round
pick Josh Freeman were locks to make the team.)

Don’t be surprised to hear some trade rumors surrounding the Tampa quarterbacks.

Not so lucky on the Bucs roster: tackle Anthony Alabi, cornerback Kyle Arrington, defensive tackle Chris Bradwell,  center Rob
Bruggeman, defensive end Jarriett Buie, safety Steve Cargil, wide receiver, Patrick Carter, defensive tackle Rashaad Duncan, wide receiver Cortez
Hankton, defensive end Louis Holmes, running back Kareem Huggins, cornerback Darrell Hunter, tackle James Lee, wide receiver Marcus Maxwell, safety Donte Nicholson (waived/injured, tight end Jason Pociask, tight end Ryan Purvis, linebacker Bo Ruud, and wide receiver Mario
Urrutia.

There weren’t any huge surprises on that list, and Tampa’s entire six-man draft class made the team, including seventh-rounder Sammie Stroughter.  Bo is Bucs linebacker Barrett Ruud’s brother. 

Alabi was once called a future star by Nick Saban during his going-away press conference.  He’s been cut by three teams since.

Kicker Matt Bryant and fullback Jameel Cook were also released, as PFT reported earlier Saturday.

    Bo Ruud wasn’t drafted by the Bucs. Doesn’t matter. 2-14 in store this season.
