Versatile Jamon MeredithAugust 13th, 2012
Hardly a celebrated offseason signing, Bucs tackle Jamon Meredith is now with his sixth team in four years (Packers, Lions, Giants, Bills, Steelers, Bucs.) That’s not a great sign, but it’s also not easy to accomplish.
People keep seeing something in this guy.
Joe is taking note of Meredith, 26, because he came in to play left guard for Carl Nicks on Friday and was on the field in between Demar Dotson and Jeremy Zuttah. The tape shows Meredith made a key, powerful block on Doug Martin’s second-quarter touchdown run. Joe also saw him turn in other solid play.
Meredith was listed as a tackle when he came to the Bucs and was widely projected as a third-round tackle out of South Carolina in 2009, but he was picked in the fifth round by Green Bay and cut before that season.
If he’s now taking quality reps at guard, then he’s probably a lock to make the Bucs roster since he can play tackle as well and has been running through most of training camp as Jeremy Trueblood’s backup.
