Roundup: Bucs cut Michael Clayton
Clayton, who signed a five-year contract worth as much as $26 million last year, was guaranteed $3 million in base salary this season.
After Thursday's final preseason game, Bucs coach Raheem Morris said: "We got a chance to evaluate some of Reggie [Brown] and we were able to evaluate some of Arrelious Benn. "Really, we got a chance to look at those guys. We've already seen a lot of Michael Clayton, and we're going to get a chance to see a little bit of Michael Clayton next week as well. All those guys, we're going to find out who's going to play Z for us, who's going to be our starter.''
Clayton had 16 catches for 230 yards and a touchdown last season for the Bucs.
