Tommy Streeter Cut A Bit SurprisingAugust 24th, 2014
Joe was a bit surprised to read the name of Tommy Streeter on the list of a dozen cuts today by the Bucs, who need to slice three more players to get down to the mandated 75 by Tuesday afternoon. In training camp, Streeter sure seemed like a keeper.
On the first day of training camp, Streeter, who often worked with the second team, caught a long ball from Mike Glennon and put a move on corner Rashaan Melvin so badly that Melvin hit the turf, blowing out an ankle.
Streeter shined through the early weeks of training camp before fellow wide receiver Louis Murphy began to catch fire and even things up with Streeter if not pull ahead of him.
Streeter wasn’t cut out for special teams and that likely doomed him in the end. Kind of hard to give a roster spot to a backup who is limited.
Streeter looked the part being 6-5. In the end, it seemed Streeter was competing with Murphy for the same spot. It was Murphy’s to lose and he has played and practiced well of late, which made Streeter expendable.
