The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the signing of free agent quarterback Dan Orlovsky to a two-year contract.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Orlovsky, 28, spent last season with the Indianapolis Colts, starting the final five games, passing for 1,201 yards with six touchdowns and four interceptions. Orlovsky was the starting quarterback in both of the Colts' wins in 2011, avoiding the distinction of being a quarterback on two winless teams. Orlovsky entered the NFL with the Detroit Lions, who used a 2005 fifth round pick on the UCONN product. Orlovsky started seven games during the Lions' 0-16 season in 2008.
For his career, Orlovsky has completed 58.5 percent of 465 pass attempts for 2,880 yards with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Orlovsky will likely be the No. 2 quarterback starter Josh Freeman, replacing Josh Johnson who is an unrestricted free agent that was not expected to return to the Bucs.
