The Bucs released offensive lineman Jon Molchon from their practice squad just one week after signing him. He was originally signed after another offensive lineman on the practice squad, Raikwon O’Neal, eventually signed to the Seahawks’ active roster.
There was solid competition on Interior’s offensive line, which Molchon expected. He was on the roster along with Nick Leverett and Aaron Stinney, but Leverett and Stinney were added to the roster. It was speculated that Molchon could join the team as a backup center, but the Bucks had enough faith in Leverett even knowing Stinney could only play guard.
Molchon spent the past few seasons on the Bucks’ practice squad and has experience at center and guard. He was part of a group of three players: starting center Robert Hainsey, reserve guard center Leverett and Morchon.
Will there be a new move for the Bucks?
After Molchon’s release, the Bucks made no new comparable trades.with games next monday Against the Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay will have Tuesday and Wednesday off and return to practice Thursday through Saturday.
This will give them several days to fill their final practice squad spots. It’s also possible the Bucs will fill two practice squad positions, given the recent news that running back Chase Edmonds is expected to be out for two to four weeks.
The Bucs have Ke’Sean Vaughn on the roster as RB3, but there is also a possibility that Patrick Laird will be called up as an additional force. Bourne sat out the first week of the season without explanation as he was unhappy with his position on the depth chart. Depending on the makeup of the roster, Tampa Bay may try to find another player to return to free agency.
