Bucs sign Jordan Jefferson
Coach Greg Schiano had told the Tampa Bay Times on Sunday that the Bucs could make "22 to 29" transactions, and Jefferson is one of a number of players who could make the roster.
"He's an athletic guy who has a strong arm," Schiano said about Jefferson. "We wanted to gauge his development as a quarterback. I thought he made consistent improvement all weekend. There's a lot of upside there, so I think we would like to have a chance to work with him."
"I just want to prove that I'm a very talented player," Jefferson told the Times. "I played at LSU for a large (number) of games. I had a very strong winning percentage there. I was the second-most winningest quarterback there. But at the same time, I'm not where I want to be. But I'm a competitor and I can be the pro-style quarterback that Tampa Bay wants me to be. But I have to do a lot before I can get to that situation. I have to learn. That's what I'll be doing in my time here. I just want to prove that I can be an NFL quarterback."
