Tampa Bay Bucs Plan On Going With Blaine Gabbert And Kyle Trask At QB

TAMPA, FL. – The Bucs starting quarterback as of now, on March 1st, will either be veteran backup Blaine Gabbert or 2nd year Kyle Trask.

The Bucs may look to draft a quarterback, but GM Jason Licht says it’s not a QB-heavy draft.

“You never say never,” Licht said. “It’s not a draft like it’s been in the past where there are 4, 5, 6 quarterbacks that are up there on our board right now. But that could change.”

Bucs Head Coach Bruce Arians says it’s different now compared to when the Bucs picked up Tom Brady. Brady was a free agent and picked the Bucs. Arians says that’s not happening now.

“You can’t just say, hey we’re gonna take that quarterback because he belongs to somebody else,” Arians said. “There’s no Philip Rivers, Tom Brady, all those guys that hit free agency that year. there’s none of that this year.”

Licht and Arians believe Trask took a huge step forward not only watching behind Brady last season but has gotten stronger.

I asked Arians if he was caught off guard by Tom Brady retiring. Arians said, yes.

“Everytime I met with him, he felt fantastic,” Arians said. “He said it’s the best I’ve felt in years. The way he was playing. I had myself convinced he was coming back.

Arians also said TE Rob Gronkowski has been working out at the facility a couple of times a week but Arians and Licht still don’t’ know if Gronk is planning on playing next season.
