Reedy has made the Bucs' initial 53-man roster, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Reedy was consistent throughout all four exhibitions, totaling eight receptions for 72 yards and adding another 75 yards on kickoff and punt returns. This past summer marked the speedster's fourth training camp, although he's yet to see regular-season action. Reedy could handle both returner jobs to start the season and also presently slots in as the fifth receiver.
Reedy brought in two of three targets for seven yards in Thursday's 13-10 preseason loss to the Redskins.
Reedy played a total of 18 snaps on offense but only three on special teams, failing to log any work in the return game for the first time this preseason. Nevertheless, he's been one of the most consistent candidates for a reserve receiver/punt returner role, and his primary competition in the first half of preseason, Josh Huff, was notably inactive in the last pair of exhibitions. Reedy's fate will be known by the league's 4pm Eastern deadline for final roster cuts on Saturday.
Reedy hauled in his only target for 25 yards, rushed once for nine yards and logged 16 yards on three punt returns in Saturday's 13-9 preseason loss to the Browns.
Reedy saw a robust 28 snaps on offense and added another five on special teams, while one of his primary competitors for the jobs of fifth receiver and returner, Josh Huff, didn't see action. The 25-year-old has turned in the most productive preseason of any of the reserve wideouts (six receptions for 65 yards), and his solid work on the return units appear to have afforded him the upper hand in the competition heading into next Thursday's exhibition finale versus the Redskins.
Reedy secured both of his targets for 16 yards, returned one kickoff for 29 yards and totaled 19 yards on his two punt returns in Thursday's 12-8 preseason win over the Jaguars.
As he'd done in the preseason opener, Reedy once again made a strong case for a roster spot by making his presence felt on both offense and special teams. He also played four more snaps than his primary competition for the fifth receiver/returner roles, Josh Huff, although the latter came within just two yards of matching Reedy's kick return total. By virtue of his performances through the first pair of preseason tilts, it appears Reedy has the lead in the battle, but it certainly looks close enough to endure through the fourth exhibition.
Reedy brought in all three of his targets for 24 yards, totaled another 18 yards on his sole kickoff return and gained 22 yards on a punt return in Friday's 23-12 preseason loss to the Bengals.
Reedy was given an abundance of opportunity to advance his candidacy for multiple roles during the contest and delivered in each instance. The speedy Toledo product spent time on both the practice squad and active roster last season, although he didn't log any stats. Reedy is in competition for both the fifth receiver and returner roles with the likes of Josh Huff, a battle that's likely to endure through the final preseason game.
