Renfree signed a future/reserve contract with the Buccaneers on Friday, The Tampa Bay Times reports. Renfree appears to have a legitimate path towards making the final roster in Tampa Bay as last years No. 2 QB, Mike Glennon, seems destined to land elsewhere via free agency for a chance to earn a starting gig. In turn, last year's No. 3, Ryan Griffin, should bump up a slot, clearing room for Renfree to secure third-string duties.
Renfree was waived by the Falcons on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Renfree served as Matt Ryan's backup in 2015, seeing action is just two games with a combined seven passing attempts. He'll look to catch on elsewhere in the league while Matt Schaub and Matt Simms remain on Atlanta's depth chart behind Ryan.
Renfree served as Matt Ryan's backup in 2015. He did see action in two games in garbage time, completing 3-of-7 passes for 11 yards while throwing an interception. He has one year left on his contract, but nothing is guaranteed as a backup quarterback.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn is not ruling out bringing back former Atlanta quarterback Matt Schaub to compete for the backup role behind starter Matt Ryan, per ESPN. "Schaub is certainly somebody that we could [add]," Quinn said. "As we get through it, we'll let you know if we go down that road." The 34-year-old Schaub was released by the Raiders in mid-March. T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree are the other quarterbacks on the Falcons' roster.
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr. Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.
