The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will struggle to replace Tom Brady.

He is the biggest winner in the game and he led the team to victory in Super Bowl LV.

Having him under center has always given them a chance to win no matter who is playing around him.

Now that he’s retired, the team is suddenly trying to find their next playmaker.

Big-name quarterbacks like reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson and Deshaun Watson have been touted as potential Brady replacements.

However, Tampa Bay Times reporter for the Buccaneers, Rick Stroud, updates that the odds of landing one of these players are slim to none.

Stroud quoted a tweet from USA Today Sports talking about Pete Carroll’s statement that the Seattle Seahawks have no intention of trading Wilson.

To which he commented, “I’m pretty confident you can drop Russell Wilson from any roster. For the #Bucs, given that Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to be traded to the NFC team, hopefully Deshaun Watson’s legal issues will go away and convince the owner he’s worth looking into.

He continued, “Otherwise it’s re-signing Blaine Gabbert to compete with Kyle Trask and another free agent QB, maybe Teddy Bridgewater. Other options could come after the NFL Draft.

If Stroud’s scenarios come true, Watson will be the only realistic option for Tampa Bay among top quarterbacks.

However, that’s easier said than done considering his off-pitch battles.

A steep fall from Grace for Tampa Bay

Quarterback isn’t the only position the Buccaneers could end up tackling.

They have free agents at wide receiver, offensive line, running back and short end who can all leave for new teams.

The same situation occurs on their defensive front which could find the motivation to play elsewhere without Brady.

That said, the 2022 Buccaneers could be very different from last year’s roster.
