Former Middletown Cavalier and Delaware Blue Hen football star Kedrick Whitehead will be sticking around Tampa Bay, Florida this summer. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed the Delaware native to their 90-man offseason roster on May 15 after the Rookie Mini Camp tryout period. Whitehead was one of three players signed by the Bucs after the Rookie Mini Camp, alongside East Central (OK) wide receiver David Moore, and Charlotte outside linebacker Markees Watts.
Whitehead was undrafted out of the University of Delaware and will play Safety for the Bucs, the same position the All-American played so well for the Blue Hens. Whitehead “Stood Out” during the rookie mini-camp after being on a tryout contract with the team. Whitehead will now have a chance to show what he can do during the NFL preseason and hopefully make the 53-man roster come late August. Whitehead was a former 9x All-American, 4x All-CAA Defensive Back, and 3x Team Captain with the Delaware Blue Hens while recording 295 career tackles, ranking 21st all-time in program history and 6th among DBs.
