The NFL Draft is two weeks away and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have given two members of the scouting department a head start finding new teams to work for.
According to multiple sources, the Bucs opted not to renew the contracts of college scouts Seth Turner and Justin Sheridan, who spent a combined 22 years working for the team.
Turner just finished his 14th season with the Buccaneers and ninth as a college scout. He was most responsible for scouting the Midwest region. He started with the team as an intern in 2000 and was part of the franchise’s first and only Super Bowl appearance in 2002.
Sheridan spent eight seasons with the Bucs, including four as a college scout. He was responsible for the Midwest region and parts of the Northwest, according to the team website. He joined the team in 2006, serving as a pro personnel assistant for one season and later, a pro scout.
