Luke McCown is sticking around with the Bucs, and he thinks that he could have a shot at being the starting QB next season for Tampa Bay. The Bucs QB signed a two-year deal to stay with the Bucs, and told Pewter Report that he thinks he’ll get a chance to compete for the starting job.

“I’ll get a chance to compete,” McCown said. “I’ll compete for the starting job, and I’ll do everything I can to win it.”

McCown, who would have become a free agent on February 27, re-signed with the Bucs on Monday, inked a contract with a base value of $7.5 million and a potential total value of $14 million based on play-time and playoff incentives.

Per Pewter Report, McCown received a $2.5 million signing bonus, and his base salary is $2.5 million for 2009, and $2.5 million for 2010.
