Bucs part ways with former Ole Miss star

Snead will have to find a new team now

When Tampa Bay signed Jevan Snead as an undrafted free agent, many believed he could win the battle for the third-string quarterback role against Rudy Carpenter. Evidently, that idea was put to an end, as Snead will no longer be wearing the pewter and red.

One reason he may have been let go this early on into camp was the fact that he failed impress to the coaches during OTA’s and mini camp. But nonetheless, he was ultimately released following the signing of first round pick, Gerald McCoy. With McCoy joining the team, Tampa needed to clear up space on the roster, which unfortunately meant that Snead would be the casualty of the McCoy signing.

With Snead out of the picture, the Bucs appear to be set on the quarterback depth.

    Well it’s dissapointing to see it end this way for Snead. But if he couldn’t beat out Carpenter for the 3rd string, and showed bad signs, then he had to go.

      Yeah I was pulling for Snead, actually. I didn’t mind him at all during college, but I think he should have stayed his Senior season, and obviously he made a mistake if he can’t even beat out Carpenter for the 3rd QB role.
