According to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The Buccaneers have cut last years pick Dezmon Briscoe. It was a controversial signing from the Bengals point of view. Marvin Lewis made comments that were "pretty darn close" to admitting the league practiced collusion. They took a chance on placing him on the practice squad and then the Buccaneers offered him more money to play on their practice squad. He would eventually be activated to their 53 man roster where he would collect 35 receptions for 387 yards with 6 touchdowns.
We are already full at the WR position, however it makes me wonder. If the Bucs hadn't signed Dez last year, would we already have our "Number 2" wide out this year? Would we be having this debate about who's going to start opposite of A.J. Green? Dez proved he could play in the NFL scoring 6 touchdowns with a very little role in the Bucs offense. We obviously wanted to keep him around but couldn't afford to do it. As much as Armon Binns has come up on the roster. Is it possible that the Bengals held Briscoe in higher regards than Binns? It's very apparent the rest of the league did.
