Profile
Spent four years in Tampa primarily as the back-up but did impress late in the 2007 season when replacing the injured Jeff Garcia. Was named the starting QB before the 2009 season but lost out to Byron Leftwich during the following pre-season and was ultimately traded to Jacksonville before the start of the regular season. Made three starts at the end of the 2007 seasonand completed his first 15 passes for nearly 200 yards in leading the Bucs to an astounding victory in New Orleans. Obtained on draft day 2005 from Cleveland having been a fourth-round pick of the Browns in 2004. The younger brother of NFL quarterback Josh McCown.
