Surveying the QB market

Tampa Bay coach Lovie Smith has said he would like to bring in a veteran to add to the quarterback mix. The team wants to add competition for Mike Glennon, who started 13 games last season.

The Bucs also may draft a quarterback, but it’s important to Smith to have some experience. With free agency starting next week, let’s look at three available quarterbacks who could be targets for the Bucs.

Michael Vick: He’s the biggest name in this year’s group of free-agent quarterbacks. Vick has plenty of experience and has played at high levels at previous times in his career. But Vick’s age and injury history could work against him.

Josh McCown: He might be the hottest name on the market after playing well in place of the injured Jay Cutler in Chicago last season. McCown might be a better long-term option than Vick. He also might be a better fit in Tampa Bay’s offensive scheme.

Rex Grossman: His career has fizzled in recent years. But let’s not overlook the fact that Grossman and Smith went to a Super Bowl together in Chicago.
