On Tuesday, the Bucs released Tom Brady’s close friend.

Greg Auman said, “Bucs cut QB and Tom Brady BFF, Ryan Griffin,” citing NFL reporter Dov Kleiman.

Additionally cut were the following players: DL Benning Potoa’e, Safety Nolan Turner, Kicker Jose Borregales, and LB Genard Avery.

The seasoned reserve joined the squad eight seasons ago after leaving Tulane undrafted. 

Griffin spent 2021 on the practice squad, but during the past six or seven years, he has spent the majority of his time on the active roster.

Outside of a few games in 2019, the 32-year-old truly doesn’t have much regular season experience. 

However, he has seen a lot of preseason action and is familiar with the Buccaneers’ scheme.

Griffin resigned from Tampa back in May. 

Griffin is welcome to return as the practice squad quarterback, but for the time being it appears that the team is prepared to move forward with Kyle Trask and Blaine Gabbert serving as the backups.


Hey, I'm Martin. I started playing baseball in my early school days. But due to injuries, I have stopped playing. Now I cover baseball news updates and try to be close to the game.
