Morris, Bucs will wait to name starting QB

Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris had initially set a self-imposed deadline — following the team’s second preseason game — to pick a starting quarterback, but earlier today told the media he may put the decision off for another week. It turns out he has.

The team delayed its scheduled personnel meeting today, but did end up discussing the matter internally, with Morris telling team officials he will not name a starter until after the Buccaneers’ next preseason game, which is Thursday night against Miami.

Veteran Luke McCown had his best outing of the preseason against the Jaguars, and while some in the organization believe newcomer Byron Leftwich remains the best choice, Morris no longer is sticking to his previous statements that the team would have its starter after the second preseason game.
