The Buccaneers finally don’t have a quarterback problem
By Rob Leeds
After years of question marks at the position, the Buccaneers finally don’t have a quarterback problem.
In a world where the vast majority of the NFL teams have no clue who will line up under center for them next season, the Buccaneers have joined a prestigious group of teams that are extremely happy with their current situation.
The Bucs are coming off one of the most impressive Super Bowl wins of all time, and Tom Brady was the glue that held this team together.
Brady has still been able to play at a high level despite his age, and where he starts to falter physically (we have seen almost none of it), he more than makes up with his ability as a leader and “general manager.” The Buccaneers have been candid about Brady’s increased role in team affairs, but no one would argue with the results now.

Even after winning the Super Bowl, while most teams would have to reload after reaching salary cap hell for going all-in, the Bucs are still in a prime position to repeat next season. Tom Brady is fully committed to playing at a career level, and there is a chance that he could be the first Bucs quarterback ever to earn a second contract.
This consistency at the quarterback position was the final piece in the puzzle for the Buccaneer Super Bowl success. As teams struggled with former first-round picks and now have question marks going into the draft (like the Eagles and Jets), Tampa Bay doesn’t have to worry about quarterback at all during the offseason.
The current level of turnover in the NFL is unlike any other. Even the established starting quarterbacks like Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers could start the 2021 season with new teams.
In a year that is sure to be marred by turnover and growing pains across the NFL, the Buccaneers will be in an excellent position to make magic happen again with Tom Brady at quarterback.
