The 30-year-old Gabbert served as Tampa Bay's backup for Jameis Winston last season. Gabbert didn't play in any games.
The 10th overall pick of the 2011 draft, Gabbert served as the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars for the first three seasons of his career. After his time in Jacksonville, Gabbert has since served as a backup, making stops in San Francisco, Arizona and Tennessee away from Tampa Bay.
He has thrown for 9,063 yards in his career with 48 touchdowns and 47 interceptions.
