  • Kyle Love: Cut loose by Bucs

    Love was released by the Buccaneers on Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The Bucs got a jump on Saturday's roster-trimming deadline by cutting the veteran defensive lineman loose. Love had signed with Tampa on Aug. 16 after spending the last six seasons with the Panthers, but the team's improving depth apparently made him expendable.

  • Buccaneers' Kyle Love: Signs with Tampa Bay

    The Buccaneers inked Love to a contract Monday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

    The 33-year-old played a role in Carolina last campaign, suiting up for 422 defensive snaps and supplying eight tackles (five solo) through 15 games. Love is expected to perform in a depth capacity in 2020, should he earn a roster spot.

    Love played in all 16 games for the Panthers in 2018, recording 19 tackles (12 solo), one sack and three forced fumbles. The 32-year-old veteran played 400 defensive snaps, which was his highest total since 2012. Love will continue to provide depth for the Panthers' defensive line next season.

  • Panthers' Kyle Love: Disruptive in loss

    Love logged three tackles (two solo), one sack and one forced fumble, which he also recovered, during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Falcons.

    Love notched his first full sack of the season during the Week 16 loss. The 32-year-old veteran has played 400 defensive snaps this year -- his highest total since 2012 -- and he's already logged more forced fumbles (three) this season than he had in his entire career.

  • Panthers' Kyle Love: Reaches career high in sacks

    Love had 16 tackles and a career-high 3.5 sacks in the 2017 season.

    Love filled the role of a rotational defensive tackle, rarely playing more than 25 defensive snaps in a game. The 31-year-old was able to play all 16 games for the first time since the 2012 campaign, showing he can still handle the rigors of NFL play at his age.

  • Panthers' Kyle Love: Full practice participant

    Love (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and remains questionable for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

    After not practicing Thursday, Love's chances of suiting up Sunday seemed grim. Things took a favorable turn, though, and with Vernon Butler (knee) doubtful for the season opener, Love could be positioned for extra work.

  • Panthers' Kyle Love: On track to play Sunday

    Panthers' General Manager Marty Hurney said that Love (ankle) was on track to play Sunday against the 49ers, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    The Panthers rotate their defensive tackles generously, so even if Love is in the second rotation, expect him still to make it on the field a good amount of times. However, due to the shared reps, it hurts Love's chances of becoming a serious fantasy performer.
