Tampa Bay Buccaneers may cut Mike James

The NFL offseason is here and as a result we’re going to start hearing the names of players who are on the bubble and in danger of being cut.

Down in Tampa Bay, new head coach Lovie Smith is trying to figure out the players he thinks gives his team the best chance to rebound in 2014 and return the Bucs to the glory it seems they experienced eons ago. This may mean making some tough decisions including cutting a player who has only been with the team for one season.

According to mark Cook from Pewter Report, the Buccaneers may end up cutting Mike James despite the alright year he had with them as a rookie in 2013.
The problem for James in 2014 is the number of backs on the roster, including Tampa Bay selecting one with their third-round pick this year in Charles Sims. The former West Virginia standout has exceptional hands; something pointed out by head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht on a number of occasions.

James may not be a huge name but he’s a guy who a lot of teams might want to have on their roster as a backup or a tandem back. He had a great game against a stout Seattle Seahawks defense in 2013 and that right there might be enough of an audition to get him a job should the Buccaneers decide to cut him this summer.
