The Cardinals cut Reedy from their practice squad Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Reedy was brought onto the team Oct. 2 but wasn't able to stick around. He suited up for 11 games with the Buccaneers in 2017, making two catches for 21 yards.
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.
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.
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.
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.
