Bucs waived TE Luke Stocker.

FB/TE Alan Cross has been signed in a corresponding roster move. The No. 104 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Stocker has spent his entire seven-year career in Tampa. Mostly a blocker, Stocker turned 29 in July.
Nov 28 - 4:14 PM

Bucs TE Luke Stocker (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

It's a downgrade in run blocking for Charles Sims. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins cut, Brandon Myers will back up Cameron Brate.

Bucs TE Luke Stocker is active for Week 1 against the Falcons.

Stocker was listed as questionable, but got in full practices the last two days. He'll play in multiple tight ends sets with Cameron Brate and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Tampa's inactives are QB Ryan Griffin, S Ryan Smith, LB Devante Bond, OT Leonard Wester, DE Channing Ward, DT DaVonte Lambert, and OG Caleb Benenoch.

Luke Stocker reeled in all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' Week 15 loss to the Rams.

Stocker had just four catches all season prior to Thursday. All three of his targets came in the second half. He’ll be well off the fantasy radar next week against the Bears.

Luke Stocker nabbed three of four targets for 22 yards in the Buccaneers' Week 7 loss to the Redskins.

He missed the Bucs' first five games with a hip injury. Stocker will share time with Brandon Myers and Cameron Brate at tight end while Austin Seferian-Jenkins continues to nurse a strained shoulder.

Bucs re-signed TE Luke Stocker.

Stocker was set to become an unrestricted free agent. A fourth-round pick in 2011, Stocker has just 35 catches in his four-year career. He will slot in behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers on the Bucs' tight end depth chart.

ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas believes fourth-year TE Luke Stocker could be expendable after the team drafted Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Stocker has done little since being the 104th overall pick in the 2011 draft. He's reeled in just 28 passes for 257 yards and one touchdown across 32 career games. Stocker is now fourth on the depth chart, behind ASJ, Brandon Myers, and Tim Wright. Stocker and Tom Crabtree are likely the odd men out.

Bucs TE Luke Stocker is not participating in voluntary workouts this week due to an undisclosed ailment.

Stocker went on injured reserve with a hip injury in late September, but it's unclear if the two situations are related. "That's hurting guys like him," said coach Lovie Smith about Stocker not taking part this week. The fourth-year tight end has just one year left on his rookie deal and won't be handed anything.

Buccaneers placed TE Luke Stocker (hip) on injured reserve, ending his season.

A 2011 fourth-round pick, Stocker has been a huge disappointment for a Tampa Bay organization that once envisioned him as a future starter and Jason Witten type. Stocker was completely ineffective in the two games he played this season. Stocker is signed cheaply for 2014, but may have to compete just to keep his roster spot. He's a No. 2- or No. 3-caliber NFL tight end.

Bucs activated TE Luke Stocker (calf) from active/PUP.

Stocker is expected to be the Bucs' starting tight end, focusing on blocking. "He's not ready to go, but he was taken off PUP because he was going to do some things with pads on, which is the rule," coach Greg Schiano said. "He's moving in the right direction." Stocker remains off the re-draft league radar.

The Bucs released their first unofficial depth chart and listed Luke Stocker as the starting tight end.

As expected. Stocker has the most talent of the Bucs' shallow stable of tight ends that also includes Tom Crabtree, Zach Miller, Danny Noble, and Nate Byham. Stocker has been missing early camp practices due to injury, however, and isn't an intriguing fantasy prospect in redraft formats.

The Tampa Bay Times projects Luke Stocker as the Bucs' starting tight end but admits he'll face "serious competition."

Beat writer Stephen Holder is giving the nod to Stocker based on his experience in the offense and his draft position. Tom Crabtree will likely give Stocker his biggest challenge, but the Bucs reportedly internally believe both Danny Noble and Nate Byham have "legitimate upside." Even if Stocker wins the job, he isn't a very intriguing fantasy prospect in redraft leagues.

The Tampa Bay Times suggests that Luke Stocker is currently penciled in as the Bucs' starting tight end.

Not breaking news. Behind Stocker on the depth chart are a host of players just hoping to make the team. Tom Crabtree is the biggest threat, but he has all of 18 career catches in 46 games. The Bucs reportedly have "a lot of confidence" in 6-foot-5 Stocker, but he isn't an intriguing fantasy option in redraft formats.
Sun, May 26, 2013 11:44:00 AM

The Tampa Bay Times believes the Bucs have "a lot of confidence" in third-year TE Luke Stocker.

Stocker, a fourth-round pick out of Tennessee, has just 28 catches for 257 yards and a touchdown across his first 30 career games. The 6-foot-5, 253-pound tight end ended the season on a high note with three catches for 50 yards in the Week 17 finale last season, and he is currently penciled in as the starter. Dallas Clark is a free agent, and he is not expected to be re-signed.
