Parker Out, Underwood In

The Bucs just announced that they have re-signed Tiquan Underwood and released Preston Parker.
This is the way I thought it would shake out in week one. Underwood started camp and the preseason off hot but then his performance tapered off down the stretch. Parker did enough to convince Greg Schiano that he was the man to keep at the time, but it seems pretty evident that Underwood has more raw talent. And Parker fumbles. I thought he’d be gone after the muffed punt against the Dolphins in the preseason, but that was forgiven. He has touched the ball exactly once this season on an end-around against the Giants that went for seven yards. And that evidently wasn’t getting it done.
But more than anything, they now have some respectable hair on the team.
