Tampa Bay Taking a Quarterback Doesn’t Make Enough Sense

Chris O’Meara/AP John Miceli (@JohnMiceli15) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly prepared to take a Quarterback with the 7th overall pick in this upcoming draft.  This is a questionable move to say the least.  Not only is it a questionable move, but it just really puts in question the logical reasoning behind the other off-season moves.

Life after Mike Williams…who will be the next man up in Tampa
