Buccaneers would be wise to make a change with Kyle Trask
By Rob Leeds
The Buccaneers are not going to have Tom Brady on the roster much longer. They may want to see what else they have for the future.
The Buccaneers are about to be short one generational, face of the franchise quarterback.
Tom Brady is almost assuredly not coming back next season. That means that this coaching staff will have the added difficult task of trying to find the next franchise quarterback to lead the team into the future.
Is that player Kyle Trask? Probably not, but it still makes sense to assume this team will try to evaluate Trask before making any dramatic decisions.
While no one should assume that Trask will get any reps in an actual game based on the must-win aspect of every game going forward, it should be worth considering putting Trask on the active roster for game days for him to always be ready.
No one ever knows exactly how these games are going to go. The upcoming opponents for Tampa could finally be the pushovers needed to get this offense rolling against weaker defenses. Could Brady and this offense potentially go on a tear? It isn’t out of the question.
If Brady and company were able to build some type of lead, and reps for Trask would be extremely beneficial for a team that really needs to know what it has in its soon-to-be third-year quarterback.
It’s risky, but it does still seem like a better idea to just have Trask on the active roster to break the trend. Two full seasons of failing to make the active roster behind Blaine Gabbert isn’t exactly a major sign of confidence in what Trask can actually do.
A slight posture move like this hurts nothing and gives the Bucs a path towards growing in the future.
