The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, priced at -130 to win OVER 8 regular season games in 2017, has signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick as a backup to starter Jameis Winston.


From Yahoo Sports:

It’s a solid move for the Bucs, who otherwise would have entered training camp without a backup with NFL experience of note following the free-agent departure of Mike Glennon to the Chicago Bears. Rich Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times first reported the news.

The 34-year-old was signed to a two-year contract with terms of the deal yet to be disclosed.

In 2015, Fitzpatrick threw for 3,905 yards and 31 touchdowns but followed up that impressive performance last year by completing 56.6 percent of his passes for 2,710 yards, 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
