The Buccaneers are approaching a world where Tom Brady is no longer their starting quarterback. They need to find someone else to lead the team.
We aren’t there yet, but it sure seems like the Buccaneers are playing some of their last games with quarterback Tom Brady. There is still a lot that can happen (hopefully a Super Bowl run), but it still feels like the winds are blowing in an obvious direction.
Once that happens, the Buccaneers would be silly to sit on so many talented weapons without going after someone else to keep the team in contention.
The right quarterback could keep this team where it is at or improve it if the Buccaneers are willing to pay any price.
Lamar Jackson is the guy worth paying any price for.
As one of the best quarterbacks in the league, an MVP, and a dominant runner that can change any offense for the better, Jackson is about to break the free agent market if the Ravens are silly enough to let him reach that point.
The Buccaneers would likely have to overpay slightly to beat out their competition, but it is totally within the realm of reason for the Bucs to make this happen if they are willing to get a little messy with certain parts of their roster (which they should).
Jackson is a franchise-changer. The Bucs getting him for the future would set them up for years to come, even if he is one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league.
Jackson is the type of player that is worth giving everything up for. The Buccaneers need to do everything in their power if they get this chance and truly care about winning football games in a world without Tom Brady.
