Make It Six Quarterbacks

April 28th, 2009

Chucky must be drooling. Another arm is coming to Tampa. 

The Bucs have invited James Madison (Division 1-A) quarterback Rodney Landers to this week’s rookie mini-camp, reports the Daily News Record in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Landers has been invited to play quarterback at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ rookie mini-camp this weekend, his agent said Monday night. Landers plans to leave for Tampa on Thursday and practice with the Bucs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“That’s the plan at the moment,” agent David Sullivan said by phone from his Norfolk home. “Right now, Rodney does not have a contract. He has an offer from Tampa to come down and compete at the quarterback spot.” 

Landers put up great numbers at James Madison, with 1700+ yards rushing, and throwing for 21 touchdowns versus four interceptions. He’s largely viewed as a phenomenal athlete that could be running back or a major project at QB.

Yes, of course, Joe knows this guy primarily is coming to work alongside Josh Freeman and have a glorified Pro Day weekend. But you never know, and at least fans can be sure Landers is not another QB “smokescreen.”

    Hey lets ask Graham Harrell to come work out as well…

    Maybe see if Tim Tebow isn’t doing anything as well considering the Bucs will likely have a high draft pick next year as well.

    Hey I know maybe the Bucs can be to NFL QB’s what the Rays were to MLB talent in the past.

    Wow 6 QB’s? WTF is going on here? Luke is getting crapped on, Letwich was used, Johnson was a wasted pick apparently…. Why do we have morons running this team? When the Bucs lose I lose my temper… I’m kinda scared on whats going to happen next season with my anger…… any advice?

    Nick – Try the Percy Harvin method (as long as you don’t have any drug testing in the near future)

    Joe will tell you that a cool brew works well too.

    When all else fails look toward the 2010 draft picks – I hear there will be several top notch QB’s coming out….

    But seriously maybe the Bucs want this guy on their practice squad running the opposing offenses. Wouldn’t surprise me to have someone like Landers playing in the slot position or running a wildcat either. Heck if you can get him on the cheap and he’s durable then put him on the practice squad and let the defense beat the crap out of him right?

    I loathe the coach and gm,,and the 1st rd pick freeman,,this is the lowest ive felt in 15 years as a bucs fan

    Hey kb, get a life. It’s just a game dude. Loathe is a harsh word to throw out there about someone you don’t even know. Maybe lay off the bucs for a while and find a life.

    Hey Joe do you think the Bucs will invite Vick as well? He’s a QB and a rookie felon?
