Wide receiver Tiquan Underwood has been cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times. This move comes as a surprise after Underwood's performances in camp and in the Buccaneers' preseason games. Underwood had nine catches in the Bucs' four preseason games, collecting 158 yards but scoring no touchdowns.
Underwod is a three-year veteran of the NFL. Drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft, his 2010 season was his best.
