Rex Grossman In The Mix?

March 27th, 2009

Despite what the Glazer Boys, Mark Dominik and Raheem The Dream say, Joe’s confident the Bucs have their eyes on a(nother) starting quarterback whether it’s in the draft, a trade or possibly a free agent.

If the Bucs weren’t interested in upgrading the position, they wouldn’t have been in talks to acquire frustrated Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler.

Steve Wyche of seems to be of the same mind. Wyche is so convinced the Bucs are still looking for a starting quarterback he’s suggesting former Gators signal-caller Rex Grossman will be in the mix.

Luke McCown appears to be the starter for now but second-year player Josh Johnson and veteran Brian Griese are in the mix. The Bucs might not be completely sold on any of them, as they tried to foster a failed three-team trade that would have landed them Cutler. Now they appear set to give one of these players a shot. If new coach Raheem Morris isn’t satisfied after minicamps, a free agent, like Rex Grossman, could get a call.

This is disturbing to Joe. While it’s likely Grossman just needs a change in atmosphere, Joe is beyond skeptical of a Steve Spurrier quarterback.

If anyone can name a Steve Spurrier quarterback who has done anything in the NFL aside from blowing chunks, feel free to email Joe

And please don’t get Joe started on Dave Brown.
