Former University of South Florida quarterback Matt Grothe could get another opportunity to play football in the Bay area.

Grothe, recently released by the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, has been brought in for a two-day tryout with the Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm, a team spokesperson said. He is scheduled to work out for Tampa Bay on Wednesday and Thursday, and if things go well, he could be signed to the active roster.

Several former USF players are currently with the Storm, including receivers Huey Whittaker and Amarri Jackson, linebacker Terrence Royal, defensive lineman Jarriett Buie and quarterback Grant Gregory, who served as Grothe’s backup when the two were at USF.

Grothe set several single-season and career marks during his time with the Bulls, including finishing as the career leader in total offense with 10,875 yards.
