Former Patriots wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, released by the team last week, is now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
Underwood was the odd-man out on a Patriots team that revamped it's wide receiver corp., and now he'll get a chance to earn a roster spot with new Bucs head coach and former Rutgers head coach, Greg Schiano.
Schiano coached Underwood while at Rutgers. In four seasons at Rutgers under Schiano, Underwood had 132 receptions for 1,931 yards and 16 touchdowns.
The news was first reported by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
FOXBORO -- The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms.
On the opposite sideline, it appeared as though every member of the Texans stood on the sidelines and linked arms.
Those joining McCourty on a knee included Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, Lawrence Guy, Johnson Bademosi, Alan Branch, Brandon King, Malcom Brown and rookies Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler.
Among those linking arms were Tom Brady, Phillip Dorsett, Cassius Marsh, Matthew Slater, David Harris and Dwayne Allen.
