Proposed trade would be a nightmare for the Buccaneers
By Rob Leeds
There is very little on this earth that the Buccaneers could do that would be worse for their franchise than trading for Jared Goff.
Wow. We are really about to start seeing this again. It seems like everyone is just admitting that Tom Brady will be gone from football sooner rather than later, and that brings a very scary future back to the forefront for the Buccaneers.
Tampa went through accepting this future for the better part of a month and some change. Terrible names were tossed out. Mediocrity at the position was discussed. Brady coming back changed all of that, but it seems as though we can’t get past the idea of a massive downgrade at the position being the only option for the future.
That brings us to this proposal that has the Bucs trading for Jared Goff.
Let us be the first to say absolutely the Hell not.
Jared Goff following Tom Brady would be one of the worst-possible moves for this franchise. Not only is Goff nearly identical to what Tampa already has in their quarterbacks in waiting, but giving up any capital for such an expensive and underwhelming piece would be lunacy for this front office.
If the Bucs really want to be mediocre and lose the fan support that they have been building with a team that actually wants to win, they can just use Blaine Gabbert or Kyle Trask as much cheaper alternatives.
Why the Buccaneers would ever consider this is beyond this writer when looking at the free agent and draft options that are sure to be waiting at the end of this season. The team has proven that everything changes when you have a quality quarterback in the driver’s seat, and doing anything to to contrary with an aging backup-talent player is only taking the team back to a time that fans would like to forget.
