Minor Trade Part Of Arians Deal

January 9th, 2019

Your Buccaneers have added a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft!

On the downside, they have coughed up their sixth-rounder in April.

The deal was a swap with the Arizona Cardinals that was all part of the official release of Bruce Arians’ rights from Arizona so he could become Bucs head coach. ESPN reporter Adam Schefter Twittered the news last night.

Arians retired after last season with a year remaining on his contract. NFL Rules say if a retiring coach returns to a new team when he still would have been employed by his former club, then his ex-team can request compensation.

Arizona appears to own the first pick of Round 7 after finishing with the NFL’s worst record. So at least it’s not a total dog of a pick coming back to the Bucs.

    Not cool Joe. My morning dyslexia said Major Trade with McCoy’s picture. This was after I read on another site that we swapped 6th and 7th round picks. 🙂

  5. Bucnjim Says:

    We can get mid-late round picks for McCoy/Jackson. The total cap savings between them would be 23 Million which should be spent rebuilding the D, resigning Humphries and adding to the offensive line.

    This coaching staff hire is a joke.

  7. Iron Wombat Says:

    So this contradicts the last report that said there would be no compensation because his 5th year option had been declined?

    6th and 7th round draft picks are all BUST, backup, and practice squat players

    Nothing lost here

    Arians said
    “I’ll also ask my quarterback at our Friday meeting to give me his 15 favorite pass plays. Then I’ll get 15 running plays from the coaches and I’ll script the first 30 plays. If there is a pass play that I really want to include in those first 30, I’ll put it on the projector and make my case to the quarterback. But if he strongly disagrees, then I’ll let him win that argument. Remember: Players make plays, not coaches. So it’s vital that the quarterback be comfortable with the plays we will run. Because if he’s not, no matter how much I’m in love with a certain play design, it won’t work if my quarterback can’t execute it.”

    Geez do we feel better that it wasn’t two first rounders and two second rounders? Wait been there and done that.

    I’m not going to debate whether it was worth the SB because that assumes ONLY Chucky could have done that. I would posit that there were other coaches who could have pulled it off for a lot less than our next five years of talent. That was a HUGE price to pay.

    Arizona is really on one. !st they hire a college coach with a losing record. Then they only get a 6th and 7th rder from us as compensation for Arians? I would have at least tried for a 5th or 4th. Good for us! Az’s new HC will be gone in a year. Watch and see.

  19. 813bucboi Says:


    not on one but on to something…they have a young qb and a young roster….same thing the rams and bears did….pair their young qb with a young offensive minded HC….

    those picks tell you just how much they really think of bruce…..lol….

    kinda like, here, you can have him….

    An under-reported part of the story is that we also traded the Cardinals a tube of toothpaste for some hand soap refill.
