Buccaneers offseason plan to make the most of Kyle Trask
By Rob Leeds
The Buccaneers need an offensive line for Kyle Trask
Well, obviously. Every QB would love to have a great offensive line, but this rings especially true for a guy taking his first NFL snaps.
The Bucs had one of the best offensive lines in the NFL last season, and keeping this unit intact for Trask is extremely important.
Not everyone has the same insane release that Tom Brady possesses. The smallest bit of pressure will lead to worse reactions with a young quarterback more than a two-decade veteran. The Buccaneers need to be willing to spend to keep this situation stable.
Alex Cappa and Ryan Jensen should both have decent markets, but their importance is only increased by the dire need to protect Kyle Trask. If Brady was the starter, you could probably get away with replacing one or the other with a cheaper option, but those two were a part of the best interior offensive line in the NFL last season.
Breaking this group up would only make life more difficult for Trask. This may lead to some difficult decisions, but keeping the offensive line intact to protect the most important player on the field is immediately priority number one if this situation continues to play out.
Between the two of them, Jensen is far more important than Cappa, but it is hard not to say enough great things about how both of these guys played this season and their impact on the offense.
