Tampa Bay Buccaneers Welcome Back Tiquan Underwood
This offseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked up free agent receiver Kevin Ogletree from the Dallas Cowboys; this created a battle with Tiquan Underwood who was preparing for his second season as a member of the Buccaneers. Throughout the preseason, it was a well-contested battle but a winner would be decided as Underwood would fail to make the cut, as Ogletree would be the victor. As Ogletree’s future seemed to be bright, all plans of that went into destruction as he was released just this Monday. Ogletree had eight receptions with one touchdown as a Buccaneer.
This was a very odd decision by the Buccaneers staff since there isn’t very much depth at the receiver position, but the Buccaneers provided a well-suited replacement, Tiquan Underwood. Underwood obviously knows the playbook better than anyone so why release him in the first place?
Last season, Underwood had 28 receptions with over 400 yards receiving impacting the Buccaneers offense greatly; it’s fair to say that his absence was missed greatly so far this season.
The Buccaneers season so far has been a disappointment going 0-4 losing three of them by less than a touchdown. However, changes are being made. First was the demoting of quarterback Josh Freeman putting rookie Mike Glennon in his place. Next was the release of Ogletree and replacement of Underwood.
The season so far has not been bright but hopefully the recent changes will light up the team to earn a few wins.
