The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Mike Kafka according to the players agent.

Mike McCartney tweeted: "Excited for @mikekafka3 signing with the @TBBuccaneers."

Kafka was drafted out of Northwestern University in 2010 by the Eagles but was released by the team in 2012. 

In 2013, he spent time on practice teams with the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars. 

During his time at Northwestern, he threw for over 4,000 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Last season the Buccaneers started Mike Glennon for most of the games after cutting Josh Freeman in October.

The Bucs finished 4-12 and fired head coach Greg Schiano. Former Chicago Bears head coach, Lovie Smith will be in charge of the team in 2014.

It is unlikely that Kafka will star for Tampa Bay next season but he could challenge for the backup role which he almost achieved whilst with the Eagles.

Kafka had two interceptions and no touchdowns in four games with Philadelphia in 2011.
