Buccaneers make roster moves

With rosters required to be down to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers began the process Monday.

Cornerback Anthony Gaitor (torn ACL) and running back Michael Smith (foot) were placed on injured reserve.

The team waived receiver Carlton Mitchell, defensive end Ernest Owusu, quarterback Adam Weber and defensive end Markus White. The Bucs also released receiver Derek Hagan, fullback Spencer Larsen and safety Troy Nolan.

The Bucs also announced they have signed tight end Mike Shanahan (not to be confused with the coach of the Washington Redskins). Shanahan played at the University of Pittsburgh and was in training camp with the New York Jets earlier this summer.
