Terrible camp performance putting Buccaneers future in tough spot

No team is truly able to compete in the NFL without a quality quarterback. It doesn’t look like the Buccaneers have one beyond Tom Brady.

Kyle Trask is having a training camp to forget with the Buccaneers.

The former second round pick has struggled in almost every area that was expected of him and is also showing some new issues that weren’t expected to be problems.

It has only been one week of camp. While it is too soon to call this entire camp performance a bust, one week is a quality sample size to say that the young quarterback has not looked nearly as good as he should.

For those who would love to dispute this fact with your already-purchased Trask jerseys, good luck finding one singular report that actually believes Trask has had a good camp.

Pushing the ball down the field has already been an issue in Trask’s game. The Florida quarterback has been hit and miss in this area so far, but a few throws stand out where they obviously lacked the technique to get the ball where it needed to go.

As for the unexpected issues, Trask has been off in his accuracy and in his decision making; two things that were not common in his college film.

One would expect both of these to improve after sitting behind Tom Brady for a year. It seems as though they have not.

Based on everything in camp so far, Trask has actually played like the fourth quarterback on the roster. Forget the backup to Brady. All of this can change over the coming weeks, especially during the preseason games, but the start has not been promising.

If Trask continues to show these shortcomings, the Bucs are going to be in a tough position going forward without a quality quarterback to lean on. This is going to force Tampa to the free agent market or the draft to save the future of their franchise, and that is not the area the team was supposed to be in just one year after spending a second-round pick on a quarterback.

Hopefully things start to change soon. This start to camp has to end.
