TAMPA — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leaving no quarterback unturned in their quest to find the signal-caller who will eventually replace projected starter Josh McCown.

The Bucs said Friday that former Fresno State standout Derek Carr will come to One Buc Place for a visit Wednesday.

Carr will be at least the fourth quarterback from this year’s draft class to be brought in. The Bucs previously met with Louisville’s Teddy Bridegewater, Eastern Illinois’ Jimmy Garoppolo and Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel.

The Bucs have made no secret of their desire to add a quarterback as coach Lovie Smith has said he would like to bring at least four to training camp.

Smith placed McCown at the top of the depth chart for the start of the offseason workout program, but he and general manager Jason Licht have made it clear that McCown will have to compete to win the starter’s job.

The Bucs also have second-year pro Mike Glennon and former Northwestern standout Mike Kafka on their roster. Glennon started 13 games for the Bucs a year ago, winning four games and losing nine.
