Bucs sign former college star Rudy Carpenter

10

Look at this more of an emergency option since Leftwich has been out. Rudy is a rookie who was one of the most efficent PAC-10 Passers of all time and holds the Pac-10 record for most efficient season from a QB. That's good company (Palmer, Leinart, Rodgers, Olsen, B. Huard, etc). He was signed from the Cowboys practice squad.
