Officially on practice squad

The Buccaneers signed Sinnett to the practice squad Sunday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The Buccaneers were hoping Sinnett would clear waivers so they could place him on the practice squad, as they gave him a $152,000 signing bonus in April. Sinnett will look to learn a few things from Tom Brady at practice this season.

Likely heading to practice squad

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

Analysis: The undrafted free agent out of San Diego intended to develop Sinnett when they signed him, giving him $152,000 in guaranteed money, and it looks like they'll follow through if he clears waivers. Sinnett only started one year in college but was quite impressive, throwing for 3,528 yards, 32 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He'll look to pick up a few tips from Tom Brady.
