Derek Carr landing spot No. 5: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The decision of Tom Brady to retire from football hasn’t quite set in just yet.
Even now, I find it hard to believe Brady is going to stick with that decision. Hopefully he doesn’t let himself become the next Brett Favre, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility for Brady to come back for the 2022 season.
If he truly is done with football, the Buccaneers are going to be in a very awkward spot.
They have Kyle Trask, a player they took in last year’s Draft, but is he really the present for the team at the quarterback position?
Given their current situation as legitimate and viable NFC contenders, I think the Bucs are going to set their sights higher.
This is a team that doesn’t have a ton of cap space, so moves will need to be made. Even with expiring contracts and players that need to be restructured, the Bucs have plenty on the roster to keep making waves in the NFC with a player like Carr under center.
Even with their limited cap space right now, the Bucs can’t afford to just sit back and let things play out. They have to be aggressive and I think we’ll see that happen. As small as their window was with Tom Brady, the last two seasons have propelled the Bucs to a level they shouldn’t quickly give up on.
