Buccaneers re-sign Dan Orlovsky

USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will re-sign quarterback Dan Orlovsky today, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. The Buccaneers released Orlovsky from his contract a couple of days ago along with D.J. Ware, but that appears to have simply been a move to re-sign him to a cheaper contract. Or at least, I assume his contract is cheaper -- because otherwise this move wouldn't make any sense. Orlovsky would have made $1.5 million under his old contract, and made $1 million last season. Presumably his new contract will come in at a price point closer to $1 million.

And with that, the Bucs have their backup quarterback back. Not someone who will actually compete with Josh Freeman. Not that that would be a useful thing, but it is supposedly what Greg Schiano wants: competition everywhere.
