The Buccaneers are going to keep everyone guessing.

Or try, at least.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota will visit the Buccaneers Monday.

That follows a previous trip for Florida State’s Jameis Winston, which many viewed as another sign the Bucs were leaning in that direction with the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

But if only for the sake of keeping people wondering about their intentions, Mariota is headed that way next.

Bucs General Manager Jason Licht, director of player personnel Jon Robinson and quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian were at Mariota’s pro day yesterday.

The Bucs will also have a private workout for Mariota in April as well.

With the Titans filling other needs this morning, there’s increasing chatter Mariota is someone they’re thinking seriously about. Unless of course the Bucs decide they want him more.
