Tampa Bay Signs Leftwich To Two-Year Deal

Coach Gruden may be gone but the Buccaneers continue to collect those quarterbacks.

Sources have confirmed that Byron Leftwich agreed to a two-year deal with the Bucs in which he will compete with Luke McCown, Josh Johnson, and Brian Griese for the starting gig.

The Washington Redskins (?) and the Pittsburgh Steelers were also interested in signing the 6’5 250-pounder but he took the Florida money. Leftwich has not played much since being a first-round draft pick in 2003, but he played very well as Ben Roethlisberger’s back-up last season.

With what the Bucs have, I would guess that Leftwich takes the starting  job. I’m not a huge fan of his “wind-up” and extremely slow release, but we’ll see how it works out in Tampa.
