Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unloaded a bunch of veteran players.
This year, on the eve of free agency, they’ve cut only three. And two of them are punters.
Gone are Josh Bidwill and Dirk Johnson. Also gone is cornerback Torrie Cox.
Bidwell spent six years in Tampa; Johnson arrived last year as an injury replacement. Cox was a sixth-round draft pick of the team in 2003.
