Bucs Re-Sign Backup QB


On Thursday, the Bucs introduced that they’ve re-signed backup quarterback Ryan Griffin. The transfer offers the staff three quarterbacks on the roster in Tom Brady, Kyle Trask and Griffin. Final yr’s No. 2 quarterback, Blaine Gabbert, stays un-signed presently.

Griffin is already the longest-tenured quarterback in franchise historical past after enjoying his seventh season with the staff final yr. Now the 32-year previous will attempt to lengthen the streak as he vies for his eighth season on the roster. Griffin spent most of final season on the apply squad, failing to decorate for a single sport. In his profession, the backup has thrown simply 4 passes, finishing two for 18 yards.

The Bucs are doubtless to provide Trask each alternative to win the No. 2 job this offseason. Griffin shouldn’t current a lot of a problem, because the veteran struggled mightily in preseason motion final season. If Gabbert is re-signed, there might be actual competitors between he and Trask. However the Bucs may need Trask to imagine the accountability, letting Gabbert chase an opportunity at enjoying time elsewhere. Both means, don’t count on Griffin to be an element except the Bucs face a rash of accidents on the place.
