2012 NFL Free Agency: Buccaneers Sign Back Up Quarterback Dan Orlovsky

The Buccaneers are not quite done with their free agency spending spree, but the level of the players they are signing has decreased a little bit. After a whirlwind few days of signing big name players, the Buccaneers have locked up a player who will play backup quarterback for them in Dan Orlovsky.

Orlovsky was a member of the Indianapolis Colts last season when he was part of a really ineffective quarterback unit with Curtis Painter. He threw for over 1,200 yards and six touchdowns. He is a player that can fill in adequately for Josh Freeman should an injury ever arise.
