Best Answer

Bucs GM Mark Dominik and at the time new Head Coach Raheem Morris were "purging" the team of the older players such as Joey Galloway, Ike Hilliard, Warrick Dunn. Derrick Brooks made the list and was cut from the team. Poor way to end one of the best and classiest players to play the game let alone the Buccaneers.
