The Buccaneers are moving on from their veteran punter.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, Tampa Bay will release Bradley Pinion on Wednesday.

The move was expected after the Buccaneers drafted Jake Camarda in the fourth round of this year’s draft.

Pinion has been consistent as a punter throughout his career, sporting a 43.7 career average in seven seasons with the 49ers and Buccaneers. In 2021, he averaged 42.5 yards on 65 punts.

Pinion also has handled the club’s kickoff duties, sending 79.8 percent of the team’s 2021 kickoffs for touchbacks.

His numbers were down from 2020, when he sent 85 percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks and averaged 45.2 yards per punt.

  1. That was expected after the Bucs drafted a punter pretty high . Good they cut Pinion now so he has a chance to latch on with another NFL team

  2. Pinion spoke out that he doesn’t want to play with a cheating QB anymore. Respect.
