E-T Staff Report

Jevan Snead is getting a second chance with the Tampa Buccaneers.

Snead, who was cut by the Bucs after their first day of training camp, has been brought back by the club because of an injury to starting quarterback Josh Freeman that left them with only two signal callers.

Snead was an Army All-American at Stephenville in 2005. He led Mississippi to consecutive Cotton Bowl wins in 2008 and 2009.

He left Ole Miss after his junior season, only to go undrafted. He signed a free agent deal with Tampa Bay, but was cut after the opening day of camp because the Bucs were making room for other new acquisitions.

Freeman, who injured his right thumb, is expected to be ready for Tampa’s Sept. 12 season opener against Cleveland. The Bucs also have Josh Johnson and Rudy Carpenter at QB.
