Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano says the team will most likely keep three quarterbacks on its 53-man roster when final cuts are made, per the team's Twitter feed.

That means that in addition to starter Josh Freeman and rookie Mike Glennon that the Bucs hope to have room for  a third quarterback on the team.

That competition comes down to well-traveled veteran Dan Orlovsky and Adam Weber, a one-time practice squadder for the Denver Broncos.

It is interesting that Schiano would go ahead and declare his desire to carry three quarterbacks, especially as third-stringers on a number of teams have become an endangered species in the past few years.
