Veteran QB Griese Yet to Show Up for Workouts

Buccaneers Broncos Football
Pewter Report states that veteran QB Brian Griese has yet to show up for any of the Bucs offseason workouts, meaning that Josh Johnson and Luke McCown have the early lead in the QB race. Here’s the report:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Johnson said he is competing to be the starting quarterback. Johnson discussed the competition and learning the new offense. Thus far this offseason, quarterback Brian Griese has not been at One Buc Place working with Johnson and quarterback Luke McCown. According to Johnson, the veteran Griese has not been at the facility up to this point of the offseason, but Johnson’s tone emphasized that would not hold Griese back later on.

“Griese has other things going on,” Johnson said. “When I’ve been here he hasn’t been here. Coach Olson has talked to him a lot, so I’m pretty sure he’ll be around. He’s been doing it for so many years. He knows. He is so smart, and he understands the game of football. I’m pretty sure he’s going to learn this playbook in a day. We’ll see him next week when mini-camp starts. I don’t know the whole situation, I haven’t talked to Brian, so we’ll see.”
