The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will head in to training camp with a veteran quarterback behind Jamies Winston. Former Bills and Jets signal-caller Ryan Fitzpatrick was signed by the team on Friday, according to their website.

Fitzpatrick, a 12-year veteran of the NFL, started 27 games for the Jets over the past two years. His career totals include 25,888 passing yards, 166 touchdown passes and a 79.7 passer rating.

A seventh-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2005, Fitzpatrick didn't emerge as a starter until 2010 with the Buffalo Bills. He also played for the Bengals and Texans.
