The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got down to the 53-man roster limit on Friday night, but it was easy to see that roster they trimmed down to would not be the team that took the field next Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
On Saturday, head coach Greg Schiano that the roster would be a fluid situation through Tuesday and the Bucs have been busy already.
With only 52 players kept, the Bucs claimed guard Julian Vandervelde off waivers. Vandervelde was a fifth-round pick with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011. He only played in one game as a rookie for the Eagles, but he started 37 games during his collegiate career at Iowa.
The Bucs also claimed defensive tackle Corvey Irvin, offensive lineman Cody Wallace, and running back D.J. Ware.
Tampa Bay had interest in Irvin while scouting him at the 2009 Senior Bowl. He ended up being drafted by the Panthers in the third round that year. He spent two seasons in Carolina before joining the Jaguars last season.
