Bucs add QB Mike Kafka to mix

It’s not the big move many are hoping will come in free agency or the draft, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added a quarterback.

The Bucs have signed Mike Kafka, agent Mike McCartney said via Twitter.

Kafka was a fourth-round pick by Philadelphia in 2010 and spent two seasons as a backup with the Eagles. Kafka was out of the NFL last season after being released by Jacksonville.

Kafka, 26, has appeared in four NFL games and attempted 16 passes. Kafka isn’t a threat to beat out Mike Glennon for the starting job. Dan Orlovsky, last year’s backup, is scheduled to become a free agent and the Bucs could bring in someone to compete with Glennon. Kafka is likely to compete for the third quarterback spot. In other transactions, the Bucs announced they have released quarterback Jordan Rodgers, offensive lineman Gabe Carimi, defensive tackle Derek Landri and running back Michael Hill.
