The Buccaneers added cornerback Vernon Hargreaves to the roster in the first round of the draft on Thursday night and they have seven more picks before things wrap up on Saturday with a class of undrafted free agents to follow, which made Friday a day to clear out some roster space for the new arrivals.
The team announced that they have waived eight players who failed to convince the team they were worth keeping around during this week’s three-day minicamp. Wide receiver Andre Davis, linebacker Darius Eubanks, guard Antoine Everett, safety Gerod Holliman, defensive tackle Derrick Lott, safety Kimario McFadden, linebacker Jermauria Rasco and cornerback C.J. Roberts were the unlucky octet sent packing.
McFadden played three games for the Bucs last season and made two tackles. Eubanks spent a week on the active roster, but saw his only NFL regular season action in nine games with the Browns during the 2013 season. Davis, Everett, Holliman, Lott and Roberts all spent time on the practice squad last year.
The Bucs are next on the clock with the eighth pick of the second round.
