Bucs taking a look at Bridgewater
By Pat Yasinskas
Although they have signed veteran Josh McCown and still have Mike Glennon, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have repeatedly said they still might draft a quarterback at No. 7.
In the latest sign the Bucs might be serious, NFL Network reports that Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is visiting One Buccaneer Place on Monday. Bridgewater is widely viewed as one of the best quarterbacks in the draft and could be a top-10 pick.
Just because Bridgewater is visiting the Bucs doesn't mean the team will draft him. But it's a sign the Bucs are doing their homework on all possible scenarios.
Generally, you don't find a franchise quarterback beyond the top-10 picks and the Bucs are hoping they're not in that position in future years. This might be their shot to get a franchise quarterback and they have to know all they can find out about Bridgewater.
