Tampa Bay released DT John McCargo today.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 2, 2012
McCargo was originally the 26th overall pick by the Buffalo Bills after trading up for him in the 2006 NFL Draft, much to the surprise of most draft experts. McCargo dealt with injuries and struggled to make a real impact at his position so far in his career. The Buccaneers signed McCargo in free agency in 2011, but was waived shortly afterward only to be re-signed once again due to an injury by Gerald McCoy.
McCargo was once again released by the Bucs when the team picked up Albert Haynesworth and was re-signed a week later after another defensive line injury. McCargo played in just five games for the Bucs last season.
