Buccaneers Cut Six Players


The Buccaneers announced on Monday they’ve released six players, including:

  1. LB Riley Bullough
  2. QB Joe Callahan
  3. DE Hunter Dimick
  4. P Hayden Hunt
  5. DE Nick Thurman
  6. K Phillip Anderson

Bullough, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in 2017. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Buccaneers cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.

The Buccaneers eventually promoted Bullough to their active roster after a few stints on the practice squad.

In 2018, Bullough appeared in nine games for the Buccaneers and recorded 14 total tackles, one tackle for loss and one pass defense.

Callahan, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Wesley College back in May of last year. He was able to make the 53-man roster as the team’s No. 3 quarterback coming out of the preseason but was later cut loose.

Callahan had brief stints with the Saints and Browns before returning to the Packers during the 2016 season. The Packers re-signed Callahan as an exclusive rights free agent during the offseason, but he was later waived and signed by the Eagles.

Unfortunately, Callahan was among the Eagles’ roster cuts coming out of the preseason. He later signed a futures contract with the Buccaneers back in January. 

In 2017, Callahan appeared in one game for the Packers and completed five of seven pass attempts for 11 yards and no touchdowns of interceptions.
