Is Tampa Bay Sending Luke McCown Conflicting Messages?

When Luke McCown recently re-signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the quarterback was led to believe he would compete for a starting position.
After Tampa Bay’s failed attempts to acquire other quarterbacks this last weekend, it seems like bait and switch.
The Buccaneers unsuccessfully attempted to acquire New England QB Matt Cassel and Denver QB Jay Cutler over the weekend. Cassel eventually was traded to Kansas City, while Cutler remains in Denver, but feels so betrayed, he is not talking with anyone in Broncos management.
If Tampa Bay would have acquired either QB, there is only one competition McCown would be in - first string clipboard holder.
Of course, the way free agency is going for Tampa Bay, McCown might end up being the Bucs’ second biggest signing after Antonio Bryant (Kellen Winslow was acquired via trade). The Bucs have not signed any free agents who were not on their roster in 2009 and fans are tremendously frustrated with management.
Do you think Tampa Bay should give McCown a chance to start or continue pursuing a more established quarterback?
Here is a video from somebody who might start the “Luke McCown Fan Club”:
