Wed, 17 Jul 2002 23:04:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden told Buccaneers.com his team's depth chart at QB will be set in training camp. QB Brad Johnson heads to camp as the No. 1 guy, but QBs Shaun King and Rob Johnson will battle hard for the No. 2 slot. Gruden also has not ruled out adding another live arm for training camp. "We might pick up another quarterback," he conceded. "Tom Tupa will work into our rotation. He won't take a lot of reps, but he will work. He'll get familiar with the nomenclature of our system, ball handling, things of that nature. With the absence of Joe Hamilton, there is a chance that we pick up another quarterback. But we are looking into that right now."
