Buccaneers That Must Stay? A Pewter Plank Roundtable
Bernard Reedy hasn’t been very impressive as a receiver, however with the injury to Dye, there doesn’t seem to be anyone in-house to cover kick returns. Although the roster spot may be better spent on an actual return specialist, Reedy seems the most capable on the team to handle it if the Bucs don’t go with a free agent or waiver claim.
Reedy is a raw talent with amazing speed, so maybe after more time with Winston and in the offense he can turn into a potential deep threat. Until then, he may find himself lucking into a roster spot based solely on the fact that he would be the return man.
I don’t trust Bell in that role, nor do I want to see Russell Shepard or Adam Humphries doing it. Not that they can’t, but receiver is not a deep position and the Bucs’ third and fourth receivers are at a high injury risk playing special teams.
