Former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson was added to the Buccaneers’ offseason roster on Sunday.
On Thursday, the Bucs announced that Jefferson has been waived.
“There’s a lot of upside there,” coach Greg Schiano said following Jefferson’s minicamp tryout last weekend. “So I think we would like to have a chance to work with him.”
Tampa must not have seen that much upside in Jefferson, because he was cut after spending four days on the 90-man offseason roster. Instead, the Bucs opted to keep undrafted rookie defensive tackle Myles Wade following Da’Quan Bowers‘ likely season-ending Achilles’ tear.
