Bucs Get Them Some Crompton Magic

How can you not like a guy who keeps his high school mustache up into adulthood?
The Bucs hedged their bets on success for this season by signing another Tennessee Volunteer to their camp roster. Jonathan Crompton, welcome to Tampa.

With backup quarterback Josh Johnson scheduled to become a free agent after this season, Crompton most likely will battle Rudy Carpenter for the No. 3 spot.

Cromton was frustrating to watch sometimes because his accuracy was bad for a while, but his senior year was honestly pretty good. Carpenter has an extra year of being in NFL training camps and sidelines and that may be enough to keep Crompton from taking his job, but I don’t know if there is a significant skill difference between the two. But if it comes down to a beer chugging or tractor pulling competition, you should get your Crompton jersey now.

Hey Scott was that the same mark carrier that was a WR the same one that went to have a successful career with the panthers, or am I remiss?

If you rearrange the letters, does Compton spell camp meat? No, but its close.

I think Crompton came in second tonight when the QBs had a target practice as they threw at moving golf carts to score points.
JJohnson came last, and Rudy Carpenter won the whole contest by a lot.

Of all the available college QBs, why would the Bucs choose the Interception Machine. Except for his last few games this guy was a disaster in college.

@ campyone EXACTLY! sorry Scott!
