Former first-rounder Larry English among Bucs’ early cuts


The Buccaneers took a flier on Larry English, but it wasn’t a long one.

According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, English is one of 12 Bucs cuts to be reported so far.

The former Chargers’ first-round pick was brought in two weeks ago to see if he could push for a defensive end job, but they apparently didn’t see enough to keep him around.

He was taken 16th overall in the 2009 NFL Draft, one spot before the Buccaneers drafted quarterback Josh Freeman. Hey, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

They’ve also parted ways with cornerbacks Anthony GaitorKeith Lewis, Kip Edwards and Marc Anthony; linebackers Nate Askew and Ka’Lial Glaud; fullback Lonnie Pryor, defensive end T.J. Fatinikun and offensive linemen Edawn Coughman, Jeremiah Warren and Andrew Miller.

If that’s the extent of the day’s work, then they’d have 10 more moves to make by tomorrow afternoon’s deadline to get to the 53-man limit.

    He was a bust in San Diego because he was always “busted” or injured, and largely ineffective when he was on the field. Stupid draft choice by A.J. Smith when he made the drastic reach.
