The former Ole Miss quarterback had aspirations of being selected by an NFL organziation, but his hopes came crashing down on him after the seventh round concluded and his name had not been called. But his NFL dream didn’t end at that moment, and in fact, it has only begun. Luckily for Snead, the Buccaneers are willing to give him a chance, and have signed him to a free agent contract.
The deal came hours after the conclusion of the 2010 NFL Draft when all the undrafted prospects were officially allowed to sign contracts with whichever club offered them a chance. For Snead, his NFL dream has just started. Though he went undrafted, Snead does have a realistic chance of making the Tampa Bay roster, and if that fails, he certainly has the chance to join one of the other NFL franchises since he was a highly regarded undrafted free agent.
