Buccaneers waived QB Rudy Carpenter.

Carpenter was a favorite of the old Tampa coaching staff, but the new regime didn't even want to keep him on a minimum salary of $615,000. It's probably not a great sign for Carpenter's career. Carpenter did play college ball under Dirk Koetter at Arizona State. Perhaps he'll resurface in Falcons camp.

Buccaneers have declared QB Rudy Carpenter, WR Preston Parker, WR Dezmon Briscoe, OT Will Barker, OG Brandon Carter, LB Dekoda Watson, DL Frank Okam and FS Larry Asante inactive for Week 13.

Tampa Bay is relatively healthy, as none of their starters on either side of the ball are inactive. Carpenter will serve as the emergency third QB behind Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson.
