The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to fiddle with their wide receiver corps.

The team just announced it has re-signed Tiquan Underwood and released Preston Parker.

That comes on the heels of the Bucs signing Jordan Shipley. Coach Greg Schiano has indicated that Sammie Stroughter’s foot injury could keep the receiver out for a substantial period.

With Underwood and Shipley, the Bucs appear to be attempting to beef up their depth behind Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn.

Underwood, who played for Schiano at Rutgers, was with the Bucs in the preseason and gave a strong showing. Many were surprised when he was released. Underwood showed some big-play capability and the Bucs could use some of that from someone other than Jackson.
