Bucs Get Them Some Crompton Magic

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.
