Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said during the draft the team “soon” hoped to complete a deal with backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Soon apparently is here.
Tampa Bay is re-signing Gabbert to a one-year, $2.5-million deal, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.
Gabbert, 31, was the 10th overall choice of the Jaguars in 2011. He appeared in four games last season but hasn’t started a game since 2018 when he was with the Titans.
Gabbert is 13-35 as a starter, with 9,206 yards with 50 touchdowns and 47 interceptions.
He has played with five teams.
