Three players the Buccaneers could target due to Patrick Mahomes’ massive deal
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could take advantage of the massive amount of money the Kansas City Chiefs will be paying QB Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes, who just signed a mega deal worth $450 million over the next 10 years, was the youngest quarterback in the NFL’s history to be named the MVP of a Super Bowl.
While that money was well-earned and expected at some point in the future, the truth of the matter is that the Chiefs will no longer be able to build a team around Mahomes’ minuscule rookie contract. Instead, they’ll have to make do and potentially miss out on other Pro-Bowlers who would’ve been considered at times in the past.
In some ways, the Chiefs’ loss could be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ gain.
The Buccaneers have little cap space to deal with in 2020, but that will be a completely different tale in 2021 when several contracts come off the books and they’re able to restructure some deals.
The result could lead the Buccaneers to targeting three Kansas City Chiefs players to come play alongside Tom Brady during the 2021 season.
Here’s a look at those three players the Bucs could potentially target.
