Bucs Re-Embrace Tiquan UnderwoodOctober 2nd, 2013
The Bucs’ high-haired Rodney Dangerfield is back.
Today, Tampa Bay re-signed wide receiver Tiquan Underwood to replace booted No. 3 receiver Kevin Ogletree.
Underwood was cut last year out of training camp and preseason, couldn’t find a job, and the Bucs brought him back to replace jettisoned Preston Parker.
Underwood, 26, played pretty well in 2012, catching 26 balls from Josh Freeman.
But this year, Underwood again was released just before the Bucs set their opening-day roster. He couldn’t find a job, and now he’s back.
This bizarre cycle confuses Joe. Repeatedly, the Bucs don’t want Underwood, nobody else does, either, and then he returns. If Underwood gets playing time and can catch the football, it will tell Joe that the Bucs brass really screwed up cutting Underwood and going with Ogletree to the start the season — greater than the obvious Ogletree disaster.
