  Buccaneers | R.J. Mattes signed    Thu Aug 21, 11:45 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed free-agent OG R.J. Mattes (Patriots). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also released DE James Ruffin.

Footballguys view: The Bucs have issues at guard since Carl Nicks retired, though Mattes is likely a depth addition more than anything else. We want to keep an eye on the continuing improvement (or lack thereof) of the line so we know what to expect from critical fantasy pieces like Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin. Both are still high-value picks (both borderling first rounders at their position) but we've already got some concerns because of the quarterback and don't like the idea that the offensive line will add to those.

  Bengals | Cut 15 players    Sat Sep 3, 04:16 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced they have waived QB Dan LeFevour, HB John Griffin, FB James Develin, WR Calvin Russell, TE John Nalbone, OLs Matthew O'Donnell and Chris Riley, DLs Cornell Banks, Jason Shirley and James Ruffin, CBs Rico Murray and David Pender and K Thomas Weber. The team also terminated the contracts of DE Victor Adeyanju and CB Jonathan Wade.

Footballguys view: LeFevour was a favorite of our own Cecil Lammey. He should get a chance on someone's practice squad because of his size and athleticism.
