Russell Wilson trade destination No. 4: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
How about replacing one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time with one of the few remaining active starting quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl?
It’s going to be virtually impossible to fill the shoes of TB12, but someone has to do it. But, something tells me Kyle Trask is not going to be the one to lead the Buccaneers back to the Promised Land— the guy has never thrown a pass in a regular season game.
Yes, Trask was a second-round pick out of Florida and well-regarded coming out of college. But he’s very likely to experience bumps and how many years does Head Coach Bruce Arians have left in the tank? The two-time AP Coach of the Year will be 70 next season.
If Arians doesn’t want to go through a rebuild in his final years as a head coach, a trade for Russell Wilson would certainly bridge the massive chasm the team would go from Brady to Trask under center on offense.
Like Brady, Wilson would surely benefit from the warm Tampa weather and be under the tutelage of the universally respected Arians.
If the Bucs can land Wilson, they would surely be able to lure back some key offensive players who are set to hit free agency (i.e. WR Chris Godwin, TE Rob Gronkowski, C Ryan Jensen). If the Buccaneers land Wilson and can re-sign some of their weapons on offense, they’ll be well on their way back to winning the NFC South.
