The Buccaneers waived tight end Luke Stocker and defensive end Darryl Tapp on Tuesday. Tampa Bay announced no corresponding moves, opening two roster spots.

The Bucs drafted Stocker in the fourth round in 2011. Only Demar Dotson and Gerald McCoy have played in Tampa longer than Stocker had among active players. Stocker appeared in 90 games, with 57 starts, catching 52 passes for 400 yards and three touchdowns.

Stocker was inactive the past two games, with the Bucs playing rookie Antony Auclair instead.
