The Buccaneers traded backup QB Luke Mccown to the Jaguars for a late-round conditional draft pick in 2010, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The Bucs had been shopping McCown, who was their No. 2 quarterback behind Byron Leftwich, for more than a week, and the Jaguars were looking to find a solid backup to starter David Garrard.
The move was made after both teams finalized their 53-man rosters and Tampa Bay wound up with four quarterbacks — Leftwich, McCown, Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson. The abundance of quarterbacks gave the Bucs trade options, which quickly materialized.
