Free Agency

Bucs, Dan Orlovsky Agree to Deal

The Tampa Bay Bucs have signed quarterback Dan Orlovsky to a two-year deal worth $2.5 million. Orlovsky becomes the fourth acquisition in free agency by the Bucs. This signing means that Josh Johnson will probably take his talents to another NFL team. Johnson is an unrestricted free agent, and I don’t think the Bucs will re-sign him.

Orlovsky gives Josh Freeman a veteran backup, who can put up big numbers, as he did against the New England Patriots last season. Orlovsky started the final five games of the year for the Colts, and during this span, the Colts won their only two games of the 2011 season.

I think this is a good signing for the Bucs because they needed a QB with experience behind Josh Freeman. Freeman will stay the starter (*knocks on wood*), but injuries aren’t a rare occurance in the NFL.
