Bucs cut loose David Gettis to add secondary depth

David Gettis has now failed to stay healthy for half the NFC South.

The Buccaneers announced that wide receiver David Gettis had been waived with an injury settlement.

Gettis was once a phenom with the Panthers, but a series of injuries kept him from ever duplicating his 2010 performance, when he caught (37 catches, 508 yards and three touchdowns, including the memorable 88-yarder from Brian St. Pierre).

Gettis only played two games the next three seasons.

To fill his roster spot, the Bucs brought in local safety Mark Joyce from South Florida, an undrafted rookie who was in their May minicamp on a tryout basis.

    Get used to this, Bucs fans. If it comes down to offensive depth or defensive depth — especially DL and safety — Lovie will short the offense every time.

    Phenom? 37 catches for ~500 yards & you call him a phenom!! If the Hall had your standards DMcNabb would be right about being good enough to get in

    Nobody cares. He would never have seen the field anyway. What the bucs need to do is sign Incognito asap or trade for Alex Boone

    corky, he is a phenom. He’s the only high school track athlete to win the California state 400M three times in a row. At 6’4″, had he pursued track, he was on the level of Usain Bolt. Unfortunately, he chose football instead and the rest is history.
