Bernard Reedy: Dropped from practice squad
The Cardinals cut Reedy from their practice squad Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bernard Reedy: Signs with Cardinals' practice squad
Reedy inked a deal to join the Cardinals' practice squad Tuesday, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
Reedy was last with Tampa Bay before an early September split. Should Reedy ultimately crack the active roster, he'll likely max out as a special teamer this season.... See More ... See Less
Bernard Reedy: Let go by Tampa Bay
Reedy was waived by the Buccaneers on Saturday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reedy's versatility allowed him to compete for the fifth wide receiver spot on the Buccaneers' depth chart throughout the preseason, but he was ultimately kept off the 53-man roster. He'll be a candidate for the practice squad upon potentially clearing waivers.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Continues impressing in multiple roles
Reedy only caught one pass for five yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Dolphins, but he made a pair of impressive grabs during Saturday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
Reedy is competing for one of the final receiver spots, with his experience in the offense and ability as a returner presumably giving him some leverage. He was far more useful on special teams (288 combined return yards) than as a receiver (two receptions, 21 yards) in 2017. However, Reedy offered a reminder of his potential as a wideout Saturday, making an impressive grab on a deep out from Jameis Winston and then putting a nifty move on his defender after the catch to gain a few extra yards. Reedy's main competition for the fifth receiver role figures to be fifth-round pick Justin Watson, who caught three passes for 30 yards in Thursday's game but also lost a fumble.... See More ...

Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Signs with Tampa Bay
Reedy agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reedy is plenty familiar with Tampa Bay, as he saw action in nine games with the team during the 2017 campaign. If he makes the final roster, Reedy is unlikely to be much of a factor in the passing game, as the majority of his impact will instead come as a return specialist.... See More ... See Less
Bernard Reedy: Let go by New England
The Patriots waived Reedy on Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Reedy moved frequently between New England's practice squad and 53-man roster this past season but failed to make a tangible impact on gamedays. Given the 26-year-old's relative youth, there's a good chance another team will give him an opportunity to compete for a kick-return gig in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Bernard Reedy: Signs with Patriots
Reedy signed a contract with the Patriots on Wednesday.
Reedy played in two regular-season games for the Patriots in December, seeing action primarily on special teams. He was released from the team's practice squad earlier this month, but the placement of Jonathan Jones (undisclosed) on injured reserve opened up a spot for him. He may see some slight special teams duties but is unlikely to have much of a role on offense.... See More ... See Less
Bernard Reedy: Parts with New England
Reedy was released from the Patriots' practice squad Wednesday.
Reedy joined New England's practice squad in late November and had a brief stint on the 53-man roster before returning to the practice squad. The 26-year-old was previously with Tampa Bay earlier in the season serving mostly as a special teams contributor and return man.... See More ... See Less
Bernard Reedy: Signs with Pats' practice squad
Reedy signed with the Patriots' practice squad Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reedy was released by the Pats less than a week ago when wideout Kenny Britt arrived in New England. However, room has opened up on the practice squad, so Reedy has a spot for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Bernard Reedy: Let go by New England
The Patriots released Reedy on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Reedy was cut to create room for veteran receiver Kenny Britt, who will take over as the club's No. 5 wideout initially before perhaps climbing the depth chart. The 25-year-old Reedy was never able to do much out of the No. 5 role during his two-game stay in New England, with most of his usage instead coming on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Patriots' Bernard Reedy: Joins 53-man roster
Reedy was promoted to the Patriots' 53-man roster Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Reedy was signed to the team's practice squad in late November and apparently impressed in his brief time in New England. The 25-year-old is unlikely to see a significant role offensively right off the bat, but will most likely see opportunities on special teams, perhaps even in the return game.... See More ... See Less
Bernard Reedy: Heads to New England
The Patriots signed Reedy to their practice squad on Monday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reedy was waived by the Buccaneers after mostly serving as a special teams contributor with the team this season. The Patriots don't feature much depth at wide receiver, but the 25-year-old is unlikely to see much of an offensive role if he manages to earn a promotion to the active roster.... See More ...

Bernard Reedy: Cut by Tampa Bay
The Buccaneers waived Reedy on Friday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Reedy recorded two catches for 21 yards and had three carries for 17 yards while appearing in all nine games with the Buccaneers, but his main contributions for the club came on special teams, where he had served as a returner. The Buccaneers elected to let Reedy go in favor of fellow wideout Freddie Martino, who will slot in fifth on the team's depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Limited to special teams in win
Reedy returned three punts for 48 yards in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets. He did not log any plays from scrimmage and fumbled once.
The 25-year-old speedster saw all nine snaps on special teams after having received one touch from scrimmage in three of the previous four games. Reedy is unlikely to see any increase in his offensive role barring multiple injuries at the receiver position, as he holds significant value as the team's primary returner. Factoring in Sunday's production, Reedy is averaging an impressive 10.9 yards per punt return and is posting an average of 20.7 yards on his seven kickoff runbacks.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Notches reception in loss
Reedy secured his only target for 15 yards in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints.
Reedy notched only his second catch of the campaign on one of the two snaps he saw on offense. The 25-year-old speedster continues to see the majority of his work on returns, limiting his fantasy value to formats that factor in that statistic.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Posts 10 yards rushing in loss
Reedy rushed once for 10 yards and netted zero yards on his sole punt return in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Bills.
The 25-year-old receiver/return man played on just two snaps from scrimmage and logged a carry for the second straight week. However, Reedy has just four touches on offense all season, as he's been strictly deployed on gadget plays. Therefore, his fantasy value remains strictly limited to formats that factor in return yards and touchdowns for the time being, with multiple injuries to receivers in front of him representing his sole path to appreciable playing time on offense....

Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Logs play from scrimmage in Week 6
Reedy rushed once for four yards and gained 10 yards on his sole punt return in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals.
Reedy logged just the one offensive snap that afforded him his rush attempt, and due to the Bucs' inability to stop the Cardinals offense, he had just one punt return opportunity. The 25-year-old speedster continues to serve primarily as a special-teams asset, and with the plethora of pass-catching options on offense, his role figures to remain that way.... See More ...

Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Sees work from scrimmage in Week 3
Reedy rushed once for three yards, brought in one target for six yards and totaled 79 yards on three kickoff returns in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Vikings.
Reedy logged the first regular-season touches from scrimmage of his career while also filling his usual special teams role. While his participation on offense was limited to a modest four snaps, Reedy was at least able to get some run due to the pass-heavy approach the Bucs were forced to utilize to attempt to make up a 21-3 halftime deficit. However, with six elite-to-solid pass-catching options (Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, Adam Humphries, Chris Godwin, Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard) in front of him, Reedy's role on offense figures to be limited in the overwhelming majority of weeks, barring injuries to players in front of him.... See More ... See Less
