Buccaneers Round Table: Offensive Keep, Trade, and Release
Keep one, trade one, release one… well this was easy.
If it came down to a decision like this when dealing with players such as Mike Evans, Jameis Winston, and Doug Martin… it would have to be pretty easy for any General Manager and here is why.
Although you may not agree… the easiest trade piece of the three would have to be Jameis Winston. Winston, who is considered a franchise quarterback by many, would require quite the trade haul to collect. Teams such as the Browns for example would be giving up years of draft selections to be able to get a young proven quarterback.
As far as releasing one… Doug Martin is the easiest choice. Why?
Well to begin, Martin was almost let go by the team this off-season due to his suspension and lack of success in the running game. This makes this choice the easiest of them all due to the fact this almost happened in real life just this off-season. Would the Bucs really be losing much?
Finally, keep one. Who other than Mike Evans has almost single-handedly keep the Bucs in games for the past three years. Evans is a dominate receiver in this league, if not the best. The likely hood that a team would be giving up much to get him on the other hand would not be high.
This decision was easy for me… what about you?
