Leftwich won’t be released anytime soon

The St.Pete Times today reports that you can expect Byron Leftwich to stick around, as he didn’t play enough to trigger a roster bonus:

The Buccaneers won’t release QB Byron Leftwich soon because he didn’t play enough to trigger a roster bonus. More important, Tampa Bay is not opposed to having exclusively young players behind Josh Freeman, 22. They are high on Josh Johnson, 23, and Rudy Carpenter, 23, and would like to create a situation like the Packers had at one time when Brett Favre was backed up by young, inexperienced quarterbacks such as Mark Brunell, Matt Hasselbeck and Kurt Warner.
