The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will release fullback B.J. Askew today, his agent told the Tampa Tribune.
Askew is the second Buccaneers veteran to be let go today, following the release of defensive tackle Chris Hovan.
Askew has started 15 games at fullback in the last three years for the Buccaneers but has been limited by injuries. His 2009 season ended in October when he sustained neck and back injuries in a car accident.
Chris Pressley is expected to go into 2010 as the Bucs’ starting fullback.
