Buccaneers sign quarterback Dan LeFevour

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed quarterback Dan LeFevour, the team announced. The former Central Michigan prospect entered the league as a sixth-round pick for the Chicago Bears in 2010 NFL draft, but never got on the field for them -- or any NFL team.

The Bucs know LeFevour through quarterback coach Mike Bajakian, who coached him in college. LeFevour was a dual-threat quarterback, with 47 rushing touchdowns and a ridiculous 15,853 career offensive yards. He spent the past few years playing in the CFL for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes.

This signing may be a really good indication the Bucs are close to trading Mike Glennon. They now have four quarterbacks on the roster: Jameis Winston, Mike Glennon, Ryan Griffin and Dan LeFevour. The Bucs really like Griffin, too: they kept him on the roster for the entire year, meaning he took up a valuable roster spot with next-to-zero chance to get on the field.

Of course, LeFevour doesn't actually have much of a chance of sticking on the roster. So perhaps we shouldn't read too much into this.
