Bucs Sign Veteran WR Tiquan Underwood

The Buccaneers today announced the signing of veteran wide receiver Tiquan Underwood. In signing Underwood, the team put undrafted free agent defensive tackle Myles Wade on waivers.

A 2009 seventh round pick out of Rutgers by the Jaguars, Underwood has caught 11 passes for 141 yards and averaged 23 yards per kick return during an 18-game career with the Jaguars and Patriots, where he and his high-top fade spent the 2011 season.

Underwood, who played for Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano at Rutgers, was released by the Patriots prior to Super Bowl XLVI. Re-signed a few days later, Underwood was waived on May 3rd.

The Buccaneers signed Wade, who played his college ball at Portland State, to a three-year contract after he participated in the team’s rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis.
