Our pals at PewterReport.com report that the Buccaneers have dumped four players in order to get under the salary cap.

Gone are quarterback Brad Johnson, cornerback Mario Edwards, linebacker Ian Gold, and receiver Joe Jurevicius.

Johnson and Jurevicius were key played in the team's 2002 Super Bowl season. Injuries have limited Jurevicius for most of the past two seasons, and Johnson was benched in 2004.

Gold was signed to a much-hyped $35 million contract after gathering dust on the free-agency shelf last year. His agents at the time, Carl and Kevin Poston, wanted a $15 million signing bonus, even though Gold had torn an ACL during the 2003 season.

Gold played well in Tampa, but his contract contained two poison pills that would have grossly inflated his cap number for 2005 barring a restructuring.

Gold has since fired the Postons

Jurevicius is somewhat a surprise. The rest, not...

Gold's someone I'd like to look at. Probably because I'm a wolverine homer.

He did fire the Poston's as his agents which is good news. I think they wanted to get him a 15 M bonus last year.

For an undersized LB he sure is an agressive player and good tackler.

Hmmm... maybe Gold will find his way back to Denver.

Gold fired the Postons? Lets sign him before he reconsiders.

Carl needs to put Gold's number on his speed dial....
