Kevin Ogletree WR DET 2 Months
Bucs released WR Kevin Ogletree.
Ogletree was third on the team in catches (8), targets (21) and yards (70). Perhaps there's more to this story, but it looks like he was cut after too many drops. The Bucs will promote Chris Owusu from the practice squad to take Ogletree's place.

Kevin Ogletree is expected to open the season as the Bucs' No. 3 receiver.
Ogletree will see the majority of his playing time as an outside receiver in three-wide sets, with Vincent Jackson moving to the slot. It's a position that has little upside in OC Mike Sullivan's offense. Through three preseason games, Ogletree has 10 receptions for 114 yards (11.4 YPC) and one touchdown. The Bucs lack quality receiver depth, but he'll be pushed for snaps by Tiquan Underwood.

Kevin Ogletree led the Bucs with five catches for 65 yards in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Ravens.
Ogletree was first in line for three-wide sets alongside Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, running ahead of Chris Owusu and Tiquan Underwood. Unfortunately for Ogletree, the third receiver in Tampa's offense holds scant fantasy value.

The Tampa Bay Times projects Kevin Ogletree as the Bucs' primary kick and punt returner.
Roscoe Parrish served as the Bucs' return man last season, but he wasn't re-signed. Ogletree has returned just 20 kicks and three punts in his four-year career, so he doesn't have a ton of experience. Tampa Bay did acquire return man Jeff Demps from the Patriots at the draft, but his status is up in the air.

The Tampa Tribune says the Bucs are "very high" on WR Kevin Ogletree.
Ogletree appears to have a leg up on the competition for the No. 3 job behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. Tiquan Underwood posted a 28/425/2 line on 55 targets in that role last year. It's not a battle fantasy owners need to watch closely.

Bucs agreed to terms with WR Kevin Ogletree, formerly of the Cowboys.
Ogletree put up the flukiest game of the 2012 season, catching eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1. He then went on to catch just 24 passes in 14 games after that. Ogletree, 26 in August, will likely slot in as the No. 3 receiver as the Bucs try and unload Arrelious Benn. He could face competition from Tiquan Underwood for the role.
