I don't think anyone expected the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to come out and beat the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. That game seemed over before it even began.
And, with the Bucs dropping to 4-6, fans have even more reason to look ahead after the team has lost five out of its last six games.
Baker Mayfield is on a one-year deal, and he may not be back in 2024. But, there are lots of options to be had, even on the trade market. When the offseason kicks off in a few months, these five veterans could be potential trade targets, for Tampa Bay, at the quarterback position.
1. Malik Willis, Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans have made it official. It is Will Levis time. It's his show. That means veteran Ryan Tannehill and second-year pro Malik Willis are locked in as backup options, now. After this season, Tannehill will be a free agent while Willis becomes the tried-and-true backup quarterback.
But, the Titans could also try and field offers for Willis. The former third-round pick took huge leaps over the offseason and had a tremendous camp and preseason. After looking like he didn't belong as a rookie, Willis showed a ton of promise throughout the summer months.
A dual-threat with a big arm and strong running style, Willis' future in the league is still unknown and might even be uncapped. It probably wouldn't take much for the Bucs to snag him from Tennessee and give Willis a trial run as a potential franchise quarterback. He's one of the lower-end possibilities, but a possibility nonetheless.
