Buccaneers Release Veteran Quarterback After Preseason Games

The Buccaneers now only have two quarterbacks on the active roster.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished their 2023 preseason on Saturday night against the Baltimore Ravens going 2-1 overall with a win against the Jets and a loss to the Steelers in week one. 

With the preseason fully wrapped up and training camp completed, cuts have begun in Tampa and there have been a variety of them already, one of them being a draft pick in the 2023 class with rookie defensive end Jose Ramirez.

On Monday afternoon, Rick Stroud from the Tampa Bay Times shared that veteran quarterback John Wolford would be cut from the 53-man roster. The quarterback room will now, at the moment, only hold Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask.

The former Rams quarterback saw limited playing time throughout camp in Tampa with the organization's urgency in allowing Mayfield and Trask to battle it out in the starting quarterback competition.

There could be potential for the Buccaneers to add Wolford to the practice squad or add another quarterback they may have their eyes on outside of the organization in free agency.

Wolford suffered a neck injury during the Jets game on the road in preseason week two that limited him for the remainder of camp and did not see him suit up against the Ravens last Saturday night.
