Ian Rapoport reports that the Buccaneers have waived CB Johnthan Banks on Monday.
Buccaneers CB Johnthan Banks appears to have said goodbye to Tampa Bay via his Instagram account Monday.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports previously reported that the Buccaneers were “making a push” to trade for a veteran receiver ahead of the upcoming trade deadline and could have Banks or Alterraun Verner available for the right return.
Banks, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $4.726 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $849,498 for the 2016 season.
This season, Banks has appeared in four games for the Buccaneers but has yet to record a statistic.
We still don’t if Banks has been part of a transactions, but we’ll post an update as the news is available.
