“I want to thank Donovan for all that he has done for the Buccaneers on and off the field over the past eight seasons,” said Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht. “He stepped in as our starter at left tackle in 2015 and his durability and dependability at one of the most important positions in football played a significant role in our offensive success during his time here.”

The Bucs are in the middle of a salary purge, Smith is just the latest victim.
