The Buccaneers announced more roster moves on Monday.

Tampa Bay waived WR Josh Reese, LB Michael Reynolds, S Shelton Johnson, WR Chandler Jones and OT Matt Patchan.

On top of that, the Buccaneers signed OL Edawn Coughman, WR Donteea Dye, WR Adam Humphries and LB Jared Koster.


Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Buccaneers are playing WR/KR Solomon Patton on waivers Monday.

Patton, 24, was in the final year of his contract and would have made a base salary of $510,000 for the 2015 season before becoming an exclusive rights free agent in 2016.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing will free up $510,000 in available cap space while creating no dead money.

Patton signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in May of last year. He was on and off the team’s practice squad for much of the year before briefly joining the Cardinals.

In 2014, Patton appeared in seven games and caught no passes, but he received one carry for 19 yards while also returning kicks.
