Tanney No “Trick Shot” QB To Jason LichtMay 22nd, 2014
But you never know. So the signing of Alex Tanney yesterday is no “trick shot” novelty.
TV affiliate last night that Tanney is thoroughly “deserving of a shot.” Licht said he knows Tanney as the Cowboys quarterback who worked over the Cardinals in preseason last year.
Licht was the No. 2 man in the Cardinals personnel department when Tanney went 14-for-19 for 136 yards in the second half against Arizona last August. Here’s a clip of Tanney’s short touchdown pass.
If nothing else, Tannye’s got experience in multiple offenses, having spent time with the Cowboys, Browns and Chiefs. Perhaps he can be anther voice to help mold the “quarterback of the future” while he fights for a job.
As for the “trick shot” stuff, the Bucs’ GM has seen the video.
“We’re not having him throw balls into basketball hoops and moving cars yet,” Licht said.
