Murray has shown the capacity to have an extraordinary vibe in the pocket and investigate every one of his choices, not going to simply his essential read. Murray being a pocket passer is a superior fit for Tampa's offense than Quinton Flowers. 

Watchmen: Matt McGloin 

McGloin beat out Luis Perez for the beginning employment after Perez was exchanged to New York, and he's a solid fit in lead trainer Kevin Gilbride's offense.
