Preston Parker Cut; Tiquan Underwood SignedSeptember 20th, 2012
OK, Joe for weeks couldn’t understand why the Bucs cut wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, who performed well if not solidly through training camp and preseason games.
Well, it seems Bucs rock star general manager has agrees. Underwood was re-signed by the Bucs this morning, which helps the Bucs stretch the field. However, to make room for Underwood, the Bucs waved goodbye to to Preston Parker, per the Bucs official Twitter feed.
@TBBuccaneers: The Bucs have brought back WR Tiquan Underwood. To make room on the roster, the team released WR Preston Parker.
While a decent slot receiver, Parker had secured a spot on the roster the past couple of season because of his special teams talents. But this season, Parker put the ball on the ground on returns, a mortal sin in the New Schiano Order.
In Joe’s eyes, this is good news for the Bucs offense.
