Trade Number 3: The Bucs land Davante Adams in a wildly unforeseen deal

This would be maybe the most shocking trade of all, but hey, let's get crazy.

Davante Adams has voiced his displeasure with the Las Vegas Raiders recently and has publicly stated that he cannot wait around for the organization to figure things out. He is tired of losing and, at this stage in his career, he has nothing but winning on his mind.

Again, with the Evans situation, the Bucs are going to lose him eventually. Why not try and trade him?

Adams trade

Adams may command a first rounder no matter what, but in a similar deal as the Higgins scenario, the Bucs give up Evans and a pair of second-round picks. Maybe, the Raiders come back and ask for a first-round pick. If that's the case, then the Bucs would have to re-think this deal.

Adams does have a contract through 2026, though, so the Bucs would have a long-term answer at wide receiver even after Godwin's deal is up. Could it work? Maybe. The Raiders very likely could move Adams, but would the Bucs come calling?
