The Buccaneers need to make a hard decision
Do the Buccaneers want to win now? There may not be a more important question for the franchise and for how the world sees Tampa’s heart.
Winning is always the name of the game, but at what cost? Bringing in Antonio Brown to town worked. The Bucs won their Super Bowl, but it did blow up in their face. Still, the ring is undeniable.
Deshaun Watson’s future in the NFL is shaky, but if his legal issues are cleared up, there are few quarterbacks more talented and available. Watson shares the same big arm and talent as his counterparts and has a need for a major change of scenery.
This would be a massively polarizing move for the Bucs and is not one we should count on, but Watson still makes sense from a pure football standpoint.
There is a lot more information that Tampa would need from the league and from Watson himself if they do want to make this an avenue to look into, but it is still on the table as a small chance.
Watson would also get the best offensive line of his career as well as the best offense, so he should at least be willing to see how the fit is with Tampa, with some of his other options coming off the table.
Still, the Bucs would be wise to throw everything they have at the other options to keep from bringing such a controversial player to town, but winning will always be the focus.
