Tom Brady replacements the Buccaneers need to pursue immediately
By Rob Leeds
The Buccaneers could go for another unhappy quarterback
Wilson is in a similar boat as Rodgers. Unbelievably talented, but a split is likely in the works after the team and quarterback have realized different values.
Russ would be younger than Rodgers and also fits the offense just as well, even bringing a bit more mobility.
Tampa would be a breath of fresh air for a quarterback that just wants to throw the ball deep, and playing behind an All-Pro offensive line could be music to Wilson’s ears as he mulls over his options. Perhaps this is the place to post stats that keep Wilson in the MVP conversation?
Wilson’s personality is also a selling point over Rodgers, given his lack of attention in the same negative ways over the past few years, but Wilson has also always seemed like he was destined for a bigger market than Tampa.
Who knows, perhaps Bruce Arians and Jason Licht can sell Wilson on Tampa as a city, especially when it is also his best chance of joining a new team that doesn’t have any glaring holes and is prepared to compete on day one.
Wilson has had some better weapons than Rodgers in recent years, but it is still hard to say that Tampa wouldn’t be a significant improvement over what Wilson was making work in Seattle for so long.
