Josh Pearson News

Remaining in Tampa Bay

Pearson signed a reserve/future contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old was elevated to the active roster for one game in 2020, but he spent most of the season on the practice squad. Pearson went undrafted out of Jacksonville State last year and is still looking to make his NFL debut.

Back with Buccaneers

The Buccaneers re-signed Pearson to the practice squad Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Pearson was cut from Tampa Bay's practice squad just two days ago, but the 49ers' decision to sign Josh Rosen away created room for him to return. The undrafted rookie out of Jacksonville State hasn't yet played in a game this season.

Let go by Bucs

The Buccaneers cut Pearson from the practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie didn't play a game this season, and he'll seek another practice squad gig elsewhere. Over his final two years at Jacksonville State, Pearson posted a 126-2,066-30 line.

Reverts to practice squad

Pearson reverted to the Buccaneers' practice squad.

Analysis: The 23-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player for Thursday's loss to the Bears, but he didn't suit up and is now back off the active roster. Pearson signed with Tampa Bay as a UDFA in April and is still looking to make his NFL debut.

Shifts to active roster

The Buccaneers elevated Pearson to the active roster from the practice squad Thursday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Analysis: Pearson's promotion ahead of Thursday's contest against the Bears comes with the context that Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (chest) have already been ruled out, and both Mike Evans (ankle) and Scotty Miller (hip) are officially questionable. Depending on how Evans and Miller do in pre-game workouts, Pearson could get a chance to make his NFL debut.

Falls short of roster spot

The Buccaneers waived Pearson on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The undrafted free agent was mighty productive in college, racking up 126 receptions for 2,066 yards and 30 touchdowns over his final two seasons at Jacksonville State. If he clears waivers, he'll look to develop on Tampa Bay's scout team.
