Buccaneers Part Ways with Starting Right Guard J.R. Sweezy

The Buccaneers made an interesting roster move on Friday, as the team has released starting right guard J.R. Sweezy, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.

Sweezy had missed OTAs and mandatory minicamp recovering from a leg injury. A source told ESPN that Sweezy has officially been cleared to resume football activities.

After Logan Mankins retired, the Bucs signed Sweezy to a five-year contract worth $32.5 million in 2016. But after Sweezy missed that season while recovering from back surgery, the Bucs restructured his contract heading into 2017.

He started 14 games for the Bucs last season and was due to make $6.5 million in 2018. We will see the depth that the Bucs have on the O-Line with the release of Sweezy.
