The Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting ready to face off in a pivotal Week 15 Matchup. The winner will get a much needed win in a tight NFC playoff race. The Packers are still in control of the final NFC Wild Card spot while the Buccaneers are in a tight race for the NFC South Divisional Crown.
Ahead of their trip to Lambeau Field, Tampa Bay decided to move on from a former Super Bowl Champion.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Release A Former Super Bowl Champion Running Back Prior To Their Matchup Against The Green Bay Packers
According to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk:
The Buccaneers opened up a spot on their 53-man roster Friday.
They announced that they have waived running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn. No corresponding move was announced, but the Bucs have until Saturday afternoon to fill it with someone who can play against the Packers Sunday.
Vaughn was a 2020 third-round pick, but he never earned a major role in the team’s offense. He has appeared in six games this season and has 24 carries for 42 yards in those appearances.
Over his entire run in Tampa, Vaughn ran 103 times for 384 yards and two touchdowns.
Rachaad White, Chase Edmonds, and Sean Tucker remain on the running back depth chart for the Bucs.
How Will This Impact Sunday’s Matchup?
Vaughn had been utilized very sparingly prior to his release from the Buccaneers. To date, he has 24 attempts for 42 yards on the entire season. It is likely they will use the roster spot for a free agent specialist or possibly a different running back.
Tampa Bay is heading into their Week 15 matchup with a lot to play for. Moving on from a former third-round pick is not something you’d expect this late in the season, however, his usage was telling.
