    Remember how everyone was sayint it was a mistake to cut him and that TB got a steal? ya......2nd team, he's still not a T, maybe he'll wise up and try and play G for a team now, like the Bears wanted him to.

    The Buccaneers have officially released four players from their roster, reports Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com (via Twitter). According to Smith, the club has cut quarterback Jordan Rodgers, running back Michael Hill, offensive tackle Gabe Carimi, and defensive tackle Derek Landri.
    Carimi and Landri each had one year remaining on their respective deals, and had been set to hit unrestricted free agency in 2015. Rodgers and Hill would have been ticketed for 2016 free agency, though neither would’ve been fully unrestricted by that point. While Rodgers and Hill were on minimum-salary contracts, Carimi and Landri had been set to earn about $1.34MM and $1.5MM respectively, so Tampa Bay will save a little cap room by cutting them. None of the four players will represent any dead money for 2014.
    While Rodgers didn’t play for the Bucs in 2013 and Hill earned just nine carries in limited action, Carimi and Landri both started games for the club. However, neither player was expected to have a significant role with the team going forward.
    Rodgers is the brother of Packers star Aaron Rodgers, while Carimi was a former first-round pick by the Bears.

    Ahhh the good ol' days , when BEARS drafted players in the first and ditched em a few years later. Kinda miss those days , but then again I miss having syphillis.

    Now we have these dreadful first rounders making the PRO-BOWL. What happened to BEARS tradition ?

    Wow, what a fall. I'm not sure if he was a bad pick because he had an early injury he never recovered from or he just was just a bust in the making from the beginning anyway. Maybe just maybe he can become a G somewhere.

    Before we are tempted to snicker at 'another failed Angelo pick', remember that Green Bay drafted another "LT" in the first that year (Derek Sherrod) a few spots past us that has also completely flopped.

    Ironic that the Head Coach of the team that drafted him is now the Head Coach of the team that cut him.

    lol 4da, I hadn't even thought of that. I wonder if Carimi, upon hearing the Lovie hiring, had an thank God I'm safe, or Oh crap I'm about to be looking for another team moment. Still think Gabe could have been a solid G, but he insisted he was a T, and it's costing him.
