Bucs On The Hunt For QB

INDIANAPOLIS – The Bucs are definitely in the market for another quarterback this spring. Their plan is to take four to training camp, but they’re not sure what kind of quarterback that fourth one will be.
Be it a veteran long on experience such as J.P. Losman, a young player with some games under his belt such as Kyle Boller or a budding star just out of college has yet to be determined.
Bucs GM Mark Dominik said the Bucs will go a long way toward making that decision here at the combine, but he doesn’t mean it will be determined by what they see from the players available in the draft.
He said the Bucs are determining what players will truly be available in free agency and what players can be had in trade and that a decision on the matter will be made after all the options are determined and weighed.
So, let the speculation begin. Could the Bucs draft a quarterback? Sure. Could they trade for someone such as Derek Anderson? Sure. Could they wait until free agency and pick off a guy like Losman? Absolutely.
And let’s not limit the speculation here to just one. Though Brian Griese is under contract, he is replaceable. We’re not sure the Bucs really want to let him go, but they may if they can find a better veteran to replace him.
The bottom line is that the Bucs want someone who can “compete’’ (Dominik’s word) with Luke McCown for the starter’s job. They want a competition at that position, and it seems they’re going to get one.
