Former Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead, who left school early only to be passed over in the NFL draft, is heading to Tampa Bay.
Adam Caplan of Scout.com is reporting that the Bucs have agreed to a deal with Snead.
Snead played briefly at Texas as a freshman in 2006, then sat out 2007 after transferring because he didn’t want to languish on the bench behind Colt McCoy. He started to generate buzz as a future high draft pick with a big season in 2008, but he was a disappointment in 2009, completing just 54.4 percent of his passes and having 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
Snead has a good arm and might eventually develop into an NFL starter, but he learned the hard way today that NFL teams think he has a lot of work to do. At least now he knows that Tampa Bay is where he’ll do that work.
