The second reason why Jamal Adams is a likely trade target for the Buccaneers is that the Bucs have the available capital to trade. Tampa Bay does have an important draft coming up but there is a chance that they could make some trades to keep most of their higher round picks despite trading for Adams.
As already stated, the Buccaneers could draft a safety in every round of this draft and not find a safety as talented as Jamal Adams. By trading these picks Tampa Bay could guarantee themselves a starting-caliber safety.
Jamal Adams would likely garner two first-round draft picks, maybe slightly less depending on how Adam Gase handles the next few months. Just so that it is clear, Adam Gase is the next reason why this trade makes sense.
The Bucs could trade their first-round pick for 2020 to bring in Adams and could then trade away a player like O.J. Howard, giving themselves two second-round picks where they could easily address the offensive line and defensive line, their biggest needs.
The Buccaneers would guarantee themselves a proven safety while also not destroying their future. Tampa Bay has a lot of young players on their team and if their 2020 draft class is strong enough, the first-round pick in 2021 becomes slightly less important.
