QB - TB
Week 3 Outlook
The Buccaneers have re-signed free agent quarterback Blaine Gabbert. It's a one-year, $2.5 million deal between the Super Bowl champions and their signal-caller.
The Bucs' depth chart behind Tom Brady is quite interesting. Gabbert, who completed nine of 16 passes last season for 143 yards and two touchdowns, joins a room that also includes Ryan Griffin and Kyle Trask. The former has spent six years with the Buccaneers, attempting just four passes. The latter, meanwhile, was drafted by Tampa Bay in April. He was the sixth quarterback off the board and the first taken outside of Round 1.
Buccaneers QB Blaine Gabbert completed 9-of-15 passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's Week 16 victory over the Lions.
Gabbert played the entire second half with Tom Brady benched for playing too well. Really, he was benched because the Bucs had a commanding lead and Tampa Bay wanted to get Brady out of harm's way. Gabbert could see time in Week 17 against the Falcons depending on the playoff picture following the conclusion of Week 16.
Blaine Gabbert is signing a one-year deal with the Buccaneers.
Gabbert will backup Tom Brady and is familiar with Bruce Arians offense. He spent the majority of 2019 on the injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. Gabbert is mainly a handcuff for Brady in two-quarterback league formats.
Blaine Gabbert (shoulder) will not return from injured reserve this season.
Gabbert suffered the shoulder injury during the preseason and hasn’t played a single snap all year. He was placed on the injured reserve in September and has been ruled out the rest of the season. Jameis Winston will not have to look over his shoulder anymore and should have a long leash the rest of the year.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Buccaneers QB Blaine Gabbert (shoulder) dislocated his non-throwing shoulder against the Browns on Friday night.
The good news is that Gabbert's shoulder injury was to his non-throwing shoulder. And while he was spotted in a sling, he is not expected to be sidelined for an extended period. Ryan Griffin will take over as the QB2 until Gabbert is good to go.
