Buccaneers Release Linebacker Deone Bucannon

The Bucs released the 27-year-old linebacker Deone Bucannon, Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Bucs signed Bucannon to a $2.5 million contract back in March because of his familiarity with defensive coordinator Todd Bowles system.

By releasing Bucannon before Week 9, the Bucs will receive a third-round compensatory pick in next year’s draft. They are still responsible for his full salary.

The Bucs signed linebacker Noah Hawkins, a Bengals practice squad player, to take Bucannon’s spot on the 53-man active roster.
