Buccaneers release Bucannon


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released Deone Bucannon (LB) per multiple sources.


The Buccaneers signed Bucannon back in May as a free agent. The abrupt move came just before the team left for London this morning. Bucannon will surely be signed somewhere very soon.

Bucannon was considered a hybrid safety/linebacker type that would excel in defensive coordinator Todd Bowles’ system. The reality is he spent most of his time as a Buccaneer playing special teams and being a reserve defender.

Stay tuned to Bucsreport.com for more on this and the subsequent corresponding move that’s sure to come.
