Sun, 03 Sep 2006 19:04:13 -0700

We like the way (rookie Bruce) Gradkowski played and we feel like Tim Rattay is going to be okay and certainly Jay Fiedler's return is around the corner, so I'm not going to get engaged here in a lot of speculation."

Holder, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports with the addition of QB Jay Fiedler, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may decide to release QB Tim Rattay before the season and save $1.25 million against the salary cap.

Buccaneers | Rattay No. 2 and ready to step in if needed

Sun, 25 Jun 2006 16:28:41 -0700

Tom Balog, of the Herald-Tribune, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tim Rattay is currently the team's No. 2 quarterback and he's ready to step in to play whenever he is needed. He has 16 starts under his belt in five-plus NFL seasons, all with the San Francisco 49ers, who made him a seventh-round draft pick in 2000. "The fact that he's played and been in the battle, that really is his strength," said Bucs quarterbacks coach Paul Hackett Thursday, June 22, when the team wrapped up its three-day minicamp. "He brings the experience that we really don't have with the other guys, to the group." "Tim Rattay is a very solid player," said Bucs head coach Jon Gruden. QB Luke McCown's knee injury pushes Rattay even more to the forefront going into training camp July 28, even though he was likely to win the backup job anyway. "He's been right in the middle of everything. He's worked hard at it, studied hard and obviously with Luke's injury now, he has to step up and take more reps," Hackett said. "The key thing going into training camp is that he's in tune to what we do, how we do it and the players that we do it with."

Buccaneers | Team might be willing to move a quarterback

Fri, 16 Jun 2006 20:35:20 -0700

Roy Cummings, writing for the Sporting News, reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be willing to trade a quarterback if a team approached them and the offer was right. QB Tim Rattay would probably be the guy the team would look to trade. Rattay is the most experienced of all the team's signal callers but head coach Jon Gruden likes QB Luke McCown's athleticism, and the team is extremely high on rookie QB Bruce Gradkowski.

Buccaneers | Team lacking experience at QB position

Sun, 07 May 2006 19:59:13 -0700

Rick Stroud, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterbacks lack experience in terms of starting games. QB Chris Simms has never started an NFL season as the starting quarterback and has 12 career starts, QB Tim Rattay has 16 starts in seven seasons and QB Luke McCown started four games as a rookie for the Cleveland Browns before being traded to Tampa Bay. Quarterbacks coach Paul Hackett said, "We're very, very, woefully inexperienced at the quarterback position. As excited as we were about what Chris did, Chris shows us so much promise. But the reality of it is he's still a guy who never opened the season as a starter. You'd always like to have a veteran guy, but we're a young offense. We've got young people at every position, and the quarterback position is no different."
