Cuts aren't due into the league office until 9 PM on Friday, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't wasting any time letting go of some of their players.
And those players aren't shy about posting their release on Twitter.
Late Thursday night, defensive tackle Frank Okam and running back Mossis Madu each posted tweets suggesting that they were indeed released by the Bucs. Of course nothing is official until Tampa Bay releases a statement but both players are as good as gone.

With those three players gone, the Bucs need to cut 19 more players before the deadline.
