The Buccaneers signed quarterback Reid Sinnett as an undrafted free agent with very few expectations that he will earn a roster spot at the end of training camp.
Sinnett has some strengths, but it seems unlikely that he has a real shot of beating out Blaine Gabbert or Ryan Griffin for either of the backup spots. The Bucs are very set on these two in their current roles for the time being, and moving on from either wouldn’t be consistent of Bruce Arians.
While Sinnett will likely not make the final roster, it can be assumed that he will be signed to the practice squad to run the opposition each week for the Buccaneer defense in practice.
In addition to this role with the team, the Bucs can also call on Sinnett if either of the other backups goes down. If a similar Blaine Gabbert injury happens in 2020, Sinnett could challenge Griffin if the Bucs needed to make a complete change with a new backup.
While he will likely not take a snap with the Buccaneers in 2020, Reid Sinnett will have a chance to make the final roster down the road as one of the backup quarterbacks or improve beyond that with the practice squad.
