The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have begun the process of getting their roster down to 53 players, as they announced the release of three players on Thursday:

Anderson, Lewis and VanDerMeulen were all undrafted free agents, so it's no real surprise that they were cut. All three came from smaller colleges -- Toledo (VanDerMeulen), Lewis (Central Washington) and Wanger (Anderson) -- so they had a higher hurdle than most to make an NFL roster.
There will be many more cuts coming in the next few days, as Tampa Bay will need to have a maximum of 75 players in camp by Aug 27 and then the final 53 man roster for the 2012 season by Sep 1.
