Today Lovie Smith began duties of GM/Coach, and he went on a waiving spree. The Buccaneers waived/released OL Gabe Carimi, RB Michael Hill, DT Derek Landri, and QB Jordan Rodgers.
Per Yahoo’s Brian McIntyre, the four moves save a combined $2.07 million in cap space. Carimis is a former Bears first-round pick who knows new Bucs coach Lovie Smith from their time in Chicago, Carimi was a quick cut for Smith, getting the ax just 41 days after Lovie’s hiring. Landri and Hill are the other notable names here. Landri was a Notre Dame alum who appeared in nine 2013 games, making nine tackles and one sack.
Michael Hill was a 2013 undrafted free agent out of Missouri Western. Hill only earned nine carries as a rookie, gaining 23 yards behind Bobby Rainey.
