The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Wednesday that they’ve re-signed WR Bernard Reedy to a contract and waived WR Thomas Sperbeck.
Reedy, 26, originally signed on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo back in 2014. He was unfortunately among their roster cuts at the start of the 2015 season and eventually signed a future/reserve contract with the Buccaneers.
Reedy was able to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but the Buccaneers later cut him loose and he eventually caught on with the Patriots. Unfortunately, the Patriots waived Reedy back in March.
In 2017, Reedy appeared in 11 games for the Patriots and Buccaneers and caught two passes for 21 yardss receiving to go along with 17 yards rushing on three carries. He also contributed 145 kick return yards and 175 punt return yards in 2017.
Sperbeck, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State back in May of last year. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the agreement when the Buccaneers waived him with an injury designation and he later reverted to injured reserve.
The Buccaneers cut Sperbeck from the I.R. list with an injury settlement soon after and just re-signed him a few weeks ago.
During his college career, Sperbeck caught 224 passes for 3,601 yards receiving and 20 touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 44 games.
