Bucs bring back Jevan Snead

Former Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead was labeled by some draft “experts” a likely Top 10 draft pick a year ago, then wasn’t drafted at all after leaving college early, and ultimately signed by the Buccaneers, only to get cut before training camp.

But Snead is back in Tampa Bay — at least for now.

With starting quarterback Josh Freeman suffering a thumb injury, the Bucs wanted a young quarterback who knew their offense, and so they re-signed Snead today.

Freeman is out for the rest of the preseason, and Snead will back up Josh Johnson and Rudy Carpenter in Freeman’s absence.

Freeman is expected back in time for Week One, and Snead will probably be gone by then. But today’s signing is one more chance for a quarterback whose fortunes have fallen dramatically over the last year.

    Which game will have more people in attendance on Saturday night? The Jags/Bucs at Raymond James or the Red Sox/Rays at the Trop.

    Snead is incredibly lucky if he ends up getting some playing time in the preseason.

    CapJack, you are way too kind. What in the world is that collection of random words delivered by 1996? 1996, soooooo 20th century.

    cailte, not sure…..either 1996 just learned to type or has yet to learn to type. Either way, somewhere there is an English teacher that is failing to do their job.

    Jevan – You are a complete moron by not staying at Ole Miss. Enjoy the practice squad!
