           === Bucs place K Tynes on reserve list, cut 21 players ===
 
 Tampa,  FL  (Sports Network) -  The Tampa  Bay Buccaneers trimmed their roster
 down  to 53  players on  Saturday  by placing  kicker Lawrence  Tynes and  the
 reserve/non-football injury list and cutting 21 others.
 
 Tynes  is  suffering from MRSA, a  serious staff infection that has affected a
 toe  in his right foot. He had signed with Tampa Bay this past offseason after
 spending his last four seasons kicking for the New York Giants.
 
 A  slew of other moves had to be made to reduce the size of the roster, so the
 team  waived nine  players from the defense, including safeties Sean Baker and
 Cody  Grimm, cornerbacks  Deveron  Carr and  Mason  Robinson, linebackers  Dom
 DeCicco  and Ka'lial  Glaud,  defensive tackles  Lazarius Levingston,  Matthew
 Masifilo and Andre Neblett.
 
 Others  released were  tackles Jace  Daniels  and Mike  Remmers, long  snapper
 Andrew  DePaola,  kicker Derek  Dimke, wide receivers  David Douglas and Chris
 Owusu, punter Chas Henry, tight end Danny Noble and center/guard Cody Wallace.
 
 The  Bucs also terminated the contracts of guard Roger Allen, defensive tackle
 Gary Gibson and wide receiver Jordan Norwood.
