Former Lakewood star Bernard Reedy, waived by the Bucs on Friday, cleared waivers on Monday and will be signing on Tuesday to join the New England Patriots' practice squad.

Reedy, 25, handled all the Bucs' punt and kickoff returns in the first nine games this season, including a 44-yard punt return and 50-yard kickoff return. He played sparingly on offense — two catches for 21 yards and three carries (jet sweeps) for 17 yards.

Reedy will head to New England on the practice squad, but with hopes of being promoted to the 53-man roster once he can learn the playbook. New England ranks 27th in the NFL in kickoff return average and 27th in punt return average.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Friday that waiving Reedy had more to do with needing to make room for WR Freddie Martino on the active roster. Adam Humphries handled punt returns Sunday, with Jacquizz Rodgers handling kickoffs.
