Tampa Bay will waive Geiger on Monday, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.
Geiger appeared in three games for the Buccaneers as a rookie last season, but he finds himself an early casualty of roster cutdowns. The second-year pro did put forth a strong showing in Tampa Bay's preseason opener, though, and he could be a candidate to resurface on the practice squad.

Geiger brought in one of two targets for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night.
Geiger saw a notable downturn in production after standing out with a 4-50 line in the preseason opener. The second-year pro's underwhelming line was especially disappointing in light of the fact he logged a robust 28 snaps overall. Moreover, given that Rakim Jarrett, a primary competitor for a reserve receiver role, shined with three catches for 84 yards Saturday, Geiger will likely need to stand out significantly in Saturday night's preseason finale against the Ravens to have a chance to stick on the final roster.
Geiger brought in four of five targets for 50 yards, rushed once for two yards and returned one punt for four yards in the Buccaneers' 27-17 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday night.
The second-year pro was brought back on a reserve/future contract in January after logging eight offensive snaps alongside 17 special-teams plays across three games in 2022. Geiger is now fighting to earn a roster spot on the latter portion of the Buccaneers' wideout depth chart, which is crowded with solid talents like veteran David Moore, the promising Deven Thompkins and rookie Trey Palmer.
Tampa Bay signed Geiger to a reserve/future contract Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Geiger made three appearances for Tampa Bay during the 2022 campaign, but he played more on special teams (17 snaps) than he did on offense. With his new deal, the undrafted wideout out of Texas Tech will have a chance to compete for a larger role throughout the offseason.
