On Thursday – the day before training camp started – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers parted ways with third-year wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe. The former Kansas standout didn't pass the team's conditioning test and was promptly cut from the team by head coach Greg Schiano.

But it looks like the Bucs moved too quickly when getting rid of Briscoe and it appears as though the may have been able to trade him for a draft pick.

NFL reporter Adam Caplan said on his weekly radio show that two teams were interested in giving up a pick for Briscoe, but neither team got a phone call from the Bucs. Caplan said that the Bucs could have gotten as much as a fifth-round pick in 2013 for the 22-year-old Briscoe.

It's not clear whether or not general manager Mark Dominik tried to contact other teams for Briscoe's services, but he obviously didn't call the two teams that were interested.

As a result, the Bucs got nothing and Briscoe was claimed by the Washington Redskins on Friday.

If what Caplan says is true, then this is pretty disheartening and inexcusable. There is absolutely no reason why Dominik should not have called every team around the league to see if he could get something for Briscoe. That is his job as the general manager.

After all, Briscoe did catch 35 passes for 387 yards and led the Bucs with six touchdowns last season. He clearly had some value and apparently two teams were willing to give up a mid-round pick to get him.
