Bucs add CFL QB Dan LeFevour for depth



The Bucs have added a fourth quarterback to their offseason roster, announcing the signing of Dan LeFevour, who has spent the last four seasons in the CFL and played for Bucs quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian when he was in college.

LeFevour, 29, was a prolific passer at Central Michigan, accounting for 15,853 total yards and 150 total touchdowns from 2006-09, with Bajakian as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach the last three years. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound passer was drafted by the Bears (and Lovie Smith) in 2010 but never played a snap in the NFL; he's totaled 16 career touchdowns in limited playing time in the CFL. He also has worked with Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter -- LeFevour spent the last six weeks of the 2011 NFL season as the Jaguars' No. 3 quarterback (inactive) when Koetter was Jacksonville's offensive coordinator.

It's a crowded QB room for the Bucs, who have starter Jameis Winston and carried backups Mike Glennon and Ryan Griffin all season without them playing a single snap last year. LeFevour's signing could support the idea that the Bucs may trade Glennon -- entering the final year of his rookie contract -- for a draft pick, giving them another backup to challenge Griffin if such a trade went through.
