"Schaub is certainly somebody that we could [add]," Quinn said. "As we get through it, we'll let you know if we go down that road."
The 34-year-old Schaub was released by the Raiders in mid-March.
Yates, a backup with the Falcons, signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract to remain with the team.
The fifth-year quarterback spent his first four seasons with the Texans. He has five career starts.
Yates completed 3 of 4 passes for 64 yards. His only incompletion was a big one, as the Buccaneers managed to intercept and run back the pass for a score.
Yates will take on the Vikings Week 4.
Yates, a former fifth-round pick of the Texans, gives the Falcons some needed experience and depth at quarterback behind Matt Ryan. Playing over 13 games, including a five-week stint as the starter in 2011, the Georgia native has 1,100 passing yards and three touchdowns with a rush score and six interceptions and four fumbles lost.
Dent is a former third-round pick of the Falcons. In 47 games (20 starts), Dent totaled 136 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three passes defensed.
