Tom Brady has retired and the next quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a mystery with speculation running rampant. Here are three reasons why the Buccaneers shouldn’t swing big for their next quarterback.
As you may have heard, Tom Brady has decided to retire from the sport of football. Thus ends arguably the greatest sporting career we’ve ever seen, and the greatest career for a quarterback Buccaneers fans have ever seen and able to call their own. Now that Brady is gone, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are back to their norm of crippling uncertainty at the quarterback position.
Currently, the roster consists of former second-round pick Kyle Trask and veteran Blaine Gabbert who is set to be a free agent. Bruce Arians has expressed the team’s interest in “opening door number two“ for their future quarterback though which is where things get interesting.
This appears to be the one offseason where there are a plethora of passers, both young and old, that are reportedly available. Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, and Deshaun Watson look like the top cash cows in the offseason farm. Heck, there are even some clamoring for a Jameis Winston reunion in Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers were able to acquire one proven passer, why can’t they do it again?
Here’s the thing though. While the prospect of Rodgers and Wilson are far and away the most enticing, the Bucs should avoid going down this road. We won’t even get into Watson, since the chances of him playing any time soon are slim to none. Here are three reasons why the Buccaneers should avoid Rodgers and Wilson.
