6_1065654Channing Ward was an undrafted free agent rookie from Ole Miss, and he will be safe from roster cuts, at least per his announcement on his Instagram Thursday night. Ward can play defensive end and he can also play the inside as a tackle. Being versatile on the line is something Tampa likes and you will see a lot of this season, it is all part of Mike Smith’s flexible 4-3 defensive scheme.

Ward is safe for now, but as the rounds of cuts come from all 32 teams during the next day, Tampa could be adding some new lineman and could ultimately put Ward’s safety in jeopardy. However, wherever Ward is placed on the depth chart or on the line that means someone else is ging to lose their job, the question is: Who?
