Buccaneers Cut WR Jordan Shipley, Sign WR/PR Roscoe Parrish
The Bucs will have their third punt returner in as many weeks Sunday against the Redskins when it's expected new signee Roscoe Parrish will field punts.
Parrish, a former second-round pick of the Bills out of the University of Miami, was signed to a contract this afternoon. Meanwhile, the Bucs released another receiver, Jordan Shipley, who fumbled one of his punt returns in his first game with Tampa Bay on Sunday in Dallas.
Parrish's career 12.0-yard average per attempt on punt returns since 2005 ranks second in that span behind Bears receiver Devin Hester (12.8). Parrish's average is the seventh-best in NFL history for players with 75 returns or more.
