Lovie Smith confirms Josh McCown will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starter, may still draft a QB

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and new head coach Lovie Smith made some free agent waves on Wednesday when they were able to grab free agent QB Josh McCown off the market, signing him to a two-year deal. Instantly, with the lack of success at the position recently, many wondered whether or not McCown would eventually be anointed the starting quarterback at his new home.

Well, we don’t have to wonder for long as Smith has already confirmed that, yes, McCown is indeed the number one guy for the Bucs.

Some at least thought that there would be at least a small amount of competition between McCown and Mike Glennon, but Smith wasted no time in making the proclamation just hours after they signed their new man under center. Now this announcement led to the next question as to whether or not the team would still consider drafting a quarterback with their upcoming seventh overall pick, which Smith didn’t shoot down.


One thing is for certain, this will certainly be a different looking Bucs team than we’re used to.
