Bucs Send QB Luke McCown to the Jaguars

Luke McCown
It was well known that the Bucs were looking for a trading partner for QB Luke McCown, and they didn’t have to look very far to make a deal with a fellow Florida team for one. The Bucs and Jaguars have completed a deal in which the Bucs have sent the backup QB to the Jags.

The Jags in turn have sent a late-round conditional pick back to Tampa Bay. It was well known once Byron Leftwich got the starting job that the Bucs were shopping McCown. The Jags were a good match, as they were looking for a backup to David Garrard.

The move was made after both teams finalized their 53-man rosters and Tampa Bay wound up with four quarterbacks – Leftwich, McCown, rookie Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson. McCown is entering his sixth NFL season. He has made seven career starts for the Buccaneers and Browns, compiling a 1-6 record.
