Buccaneers Roster Bubble: Sammie Stroughter And Ed Gant Battling For Final WR Spot

The time is coming for the Buccaneers (and the rest of the NFL) to pare their rosters down to size. For the Buccaneers, that means whittling their receiving corp to the ones they believe they need most.

Wideouts Sammie Stroughter and Ed Gant seem on the bubble as we near the looming deadline for a team that acquired Vincent Jackson during the offseason.

The Buccaneers run deep at the position, so Gant's lack of catches during the preseason thus far has been worrying for those who looked in his direction for some unexpected production.

Stroughter hasn't made much noise either during the preseason, but has contributed on special teams, something Gant can't say for himself.

Five Buc receivers are all but ensured of making the opening day 53-man roster, with Jackson, Mike Williams, Arrelious Benn, Preston Parker and Tiquan Underwood looking like solid makes. Will there even be room for either Gant or Stroughter when the time comes?
