Trading Kyle Trask

March 26th, 2022

Joe will annoy a lot of Bucs fans here. It’s unintentional, but when a team says it’s all-in on winning now, then Joe has to buy-in and explore accountability regarding that statement.

Joe attended the NFL Scouting Combine this month and the implication from the Buccaneers’ power-hitters there was that second-year quarterback Kyle Trask — a second-round draft pick last season — would be the No. 1 quarterback prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft.

In other words, Trask would be in high demand right now if he were available; teams would be angling to grab him and looking at moving up to get him near the top-10 picks.

So Joe has to put it out there. If that’s accurate, then Trask probably could fetch a strong second-round pick or a first-rounder right now. He would come to his new team with three years remaining on a very inexpensive contract following a year developing under Tom Brady, Byron Leftwich, Tom Moore, Clyde Christensen and the quarterback whisperer himself, Bucco Bruce Arians.

If Trask’s enhanced value is indeed reality, and the Bucs are really all-in to win in 2022, then Joe would trade Trask in a heartbeat.

Hypothetically, say there is no first-round taker but Seattle is willing to cough up its No. 40 overall pick for Trask (high second-rounder). That would give the Bucs, already with the No. 27 overall pick, fantastic ammo to move up in Round 1 or leapfrog back into Round 1 for an additional first-round choice next month.

Joe finds it hard to believe that’s not worth considering with Tom Brady back on the roster, Arians in love with Blaine Gabbert and nobody knowing how many years Brady will stick around.

Nothing typed here is a referendum on Trask. Nobody knows his capability in NFL game action. But again, if the Bucs are all-in for 2022 and Trask’s market value is inflated to the point where the Bucs could get a true premium draft pick, Joe believes it has to be strongly considered.

    Make it happen, Jason!

  2. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I think they should keep all options open, and go all in this year, since Brady will probably be gone after this year.
    LOL, I think the Bucs know Brady is history after this year too, and that is the reason they are making all season ticket holders buy 2 years now, instead of one.

  3. NCBucfan Says:

    If we could get at least a 2nd rounder, why not. But I highly doubt that is the case! I would not trade him for anything less, unless the coaching staff is not sold on him at all. But if thats the case, thats the true definition of a bad return on an investment! I mean we do need pass rushing enforcements, and this is a deep class. Once again Bucco Arians is called a QB guru, but who has he really developed in his nfl career? I’m by no means an Arians hater, just stating a fact. I’ll wait…

  4. TheBradyBunch Says:

    Teams say a lot of positive about all players on their roster until they are gone. A month ago Arians was telling the world that Gabbert was a gifted player and would be happy to have him under center in 2022.
    Nobody was buying that and if they put Trask on the trading block they would be lucky to get a 4th rounder. They would be admitting he’s not that special and teams would pay accordingly.

  5. Buczilla Says:

    Even quarterbacks taken very late in the second round like Trask was are worth their weight in gold. Brady has proven to be fickle concerning his retirement and subsequent un-retirement, so I would need at least a first round pick. Not saying Trask is Steve Young, but we gave him away to the niners for a measly second long ago.

  6. Oxycodoms Says:

    If true, this must be the saddest qb draft class in nfl history

  7. BA4President Says:

    If teams would be willing to go into the top 10 for his this draft, then I would take either a top 20 first round draft pick for him, or keep him. We drafted the kid for a reason.

  8. Pewter Power Says:

    Yep you’re right it would annoy Bucs fans and I disagree. Brady is the goat but he’s also no reliable in terms of how long he will play. Being all in to me means going on a run for many years not just one or two

    In the Unlikely event someone at the TOP of the first or second round wanted to give up that pick I’d take it because if not they’d be saying Trask is the long term answer me rounders no thanks there’s no guarantee that pick won’t be the next mj Stewart or vh3.

  9. BA4President Says:

    Good point @Buczilla!

  10. Kalind Says:

    I agree. There’s zero reason to hold onto this slob. Trade him. Take a bad deal if you have to. He’s not going to be The Guy at any point. Post-Brady they’re gonna get a better player. (Hard not to)

  11. Joe in Michigan Says:

    If I had to guess, I’d say that Trask is probably worth a mid to late 4th Round pick. It might be better for the Bucs to just keep him, if that’s the case. He could develop into a decent backup QB, which has some value to the Bucs since the starter is up there in years.

  12. BradyBucs Says:


    If we’re going “ALL IN” then let’s also trade (3) #1 picks to move up and take the best pass rusher in the draft?

  13. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    For a first he should be traded unless from what they saw he will take over team in 2023 as a true franchise QB. You never trade a franchise QB even if you have a Brady.

    No one but coaches and Brady really know if Trask can be a future franchise QB.

  14. BradyBucs Says:

    LOL @ all the ‘clowns’ posting crap about Trask when he hasn’t even had a chance to prove himself yet.

  15. BradyBucs Says:


  16. NCBucfan Says:

    I def like Arians swagger and smooth talk. But he’s def a bull shi$$$r! When asked about Winston when hired, “I think we can win the whole damn thing with him”, Lol! Def the best sales job of all time! Brady def help polish his resume!

  17. Riki Says:

    Using the same logic that some people used when we let Jameis go.
    But how can you trade a qb that has thrown 0 int in nfl?

  18. NCBucfan Says:

    NOBODY is giving up a 1st for Trask! If so, Licht could be the best GM of all time!

  19. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    Looks like Jimmy G will be cut as only cost 49er 1.4m, and they need cap space. No one will trade for him, I’d like to bring Jimmy G here on a back up contract under Brady, that would really light Brady’s motivation, hed probably win 2 more SB if Jimmy G was signed. Haha

  20. sasquatch Says:

    This is another classic Joe hypothetical. Pretty ludicrous. One of these days, maybe one of your hypotheticals will come to fruition. So far you’re about 0 for 8000.

    Playing along, it’s simple. Two conditions have to be met:
    1) The Bucs don’t really see Trask as QBOF. We don’t know what they really think — we only know the reports we hear which are very positive. Could be all hype and the usual positive coach talk.
    2) Some other team would have to believe he’s worthy of a #1 pick. Nobody did last year. Why would they think that this year? I suppose some QB needy team may have had him highly rated last year but wasn’t in a position to take him, but is willing to move on it now.

    Honestly, I still think it’s insane unless they’ve been lying to us about what they see in him. A decent backup QB can win you a couple of games if your starter goes down for a short period. A crap backup might lose those games and that could be the difference in playoff seeding, home field advantage, or no playoffs at all.

    Don’t be stupid.

  21. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    If he is good enough to be tradable…the why would we b stupid enough to do so when we need a quality backup and potential starter?

  22. NCBucfan Says:

    NE Patriots fan. Lol, yes it would!

  23. New England Patriots Fan Says:

    Brady does not like the true competition at backup, but Jimmy G did truely motivate another dynasty as a new chip on Brady shoulder.

    Currently Brady main chip is destroying NE, I think he would lose a SB if it meant keeping Bill out of the playoffs and forcing Bill from playoffs and that’s why he wanted to play for Miami, much harder conference but he could play a few years and beat up Mac Jones and Bill until Bill retired.

  24. BUCman Says:

    Joe, you’ve lost your mind on this one. Brady is 45. We drafted Trask to develop him for a couple years to be ready when Brady is gone. With Brady returning for 1 more year that plan is right on track. So, you suggest we then trade away that commodity? And when Brady leaves after this year we sit here Quarterbackless and watch another team reap the rewards from our development of Trask. I can already hear your argument that we got a late first rounder for him. What are we going to get with that; a solid left guard. Then next year when Brady leaves we’re desperate to trade 3 firsts and two starters for the next drama queen who’s unhappy with their situation. No, No, No!!!! Stop hating on Trask! The coaching staff seams to believe in him and for that reason so do I and so should you. There’s a reason someone would happily give up a first round pick for him and celebrate it.

  25. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Steve Young.

    Nuff said.

  26. NCBucfan Says:

    Joe is just trolling us tonight! One too many bromosas, huh Joe? Lol

  27. DBS Says:

    They would be dumb enough to do this even if he is good because BA loves Gabbert. No other team in the NFL does. The Colts took 36 yr old Matt Ryan. Who did Atlanta sign? That say enough. Gabbert is still out there!!!

  28. Bucanero Says:

    If the Bucs would consider trading him, all potential trade partners would have to know they would be in a sucker market. Who would offer for Trask when no one has seen him in pads for over a year. Why would we trade the insurance policy now that we’re a year closer to Tom’s departure? Joe had to many bromosas

  29. Mort Says:

    You guys are ridiculous. It’s all in. It’s not “All in and F the future”. If you get a mid first round offer, fine. Unless your crack team of NFL lifers like Bruce, Jason, Clyde, Tom Moore etc all think he’s going to be really good. We haven’t seen Trask throw a pass since pre-season where he was set up to fail with how bad those dudes were. They see him every day at practice, in the meeting rooms, in the weight room and know far better than the average Joe what you need to see. If they think he is a dude, then you don’t make that trade. Period.

  30. firethecannons Says:

    I agree with Joe 100% on trading Kyle Trask for a 2nd or 1st round pick, start the availability talk now and see what comes of it.

  31. JA Says:

    This is why I come here.
    Moron scenario put forth to morons to illicit moron responses.
    And it works! Such is journalism today …
    Sasquatch and Bonzi are exempt from above scenario.

    Thanks guys.
    I needed a laugh.

  32. Nutterbuccer Says:

    Absolutely not. We drafted him last year and we could have gotten a playmaker at that spot. Yea we are all in bit the bucs drafted him in the second when we were all in last year for a reason. This kid is the really deal. We have mortgaged enough and can continue to mortgage by further more manipulating the cap (Smith, David,). Hold trask for the future.

  33. SB~LV Says:

    I am certainly willing to grow with Trask just like growing with any QB. I have No idea if he has it or not. However he isn’t going to play back up to Brady this year, so if the Bucs can bring in a piece that can contribute to weaker area on the roster this season, I am all in , that is the way of the NFL these days, tge horizon is one season at a time.

  34. DBS Says:

    JA feeling is mutual. Always look forward to your moronic response to all of us also. Seems that’s all you have.

  35. SPARKY Says:

    Boy, the growing feeling seems to be Joe has had to many beers. A few more beers and Joe will want to trade Brady to Miami like everybody else.
    You read-between-the-liners are hilarious. Love how you read what’s not here. The Bucs once traded Gaines Adams, who had proven himself to be a subpar player, for an early second-round pick, No. 42 overall. That exact slot is where Rob Gronkowski was selected.–Joe

  36. Joe Says:

    Joe, you’ve lost your mind on this one. Brady is 45. We drafted Trask to develop him for a couple years to be ready when Brady is gone.

    If someone is willing to offer a first if they are that hungry for a QB (especially if it is a future first), you’d have to seriously entertain the deal. Think about it: No. 64 overall pick for a first-rounder? That’s a helluva return on an investment.

    And with that future pick perhaps you get a quarterback in a better draft class. Win/wih.

  37. NCBucfan Says:

    Arians talking up Gabbert is so fuc$$in hilarious! Just call Arians Saul Goodman

  38. Buczilla Says:

    Thanks! @BA4President

  39. NCBucfan Says:

    Arians could sell ice to an Eskimo.

  40. Joe Says:

    Brady does not like the true competition at backup, but Jimmy G did truely motivate another dynasty as a new chip on Brady shoulder.

    Never thought about that. Then again, no one at One Buc Palace considers Trask competition for Brady. At all. That job is Brady’s for as long as he wants it so long as he can still stand.

  41. NCBucfan Says:

    Any chance the Cardinals would trade Murray for Trask? Asking for a friend.

  42. Oneilbuc Says:

    This got to be the worst fan base in all of sports. Yall trying to hang on a 45 year old quarterback who needs a all-star team to be good. But you know what I hope they do let Trask go . Let that young man go to a real franchise so he can develop. And it’s a chance he go do the same thing Steve Young did while the bucs will still be trying to find a young quarterback to develop. Brady is done next year losers what’s going to happen after he leaves dummies? This time next year yall will be crying who’s going to be the starter next year and I’m going to set back and laugh at you dummies lol 😆 😂!!

  43. NCBucfan Says:

    Oneilbuc, I’ll take one year of Brady over Steve Young’s whole career! But thanks for the troll job! Go back to the Saints stupid site, or wherever you came from.

  44. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Carson Wentz did not even go for a second round pick. All teams have to do is read Joe’s articles about how “4th stringer Kyle Trask” (incorrect) couldn’t “beat out” Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin for QB2 and that’s all they need to know.

    That being said, if anyone was crazy enough to offer a 1st rounder for Trask the Bucs should take that. It just wouldn’t happen. And if someone did think Trask was that valuable and he turned out to be so, then the Bucs will have lost that trade and have no viable plan in motion for Brady’s inevitably soon retirement.

  45. NCBucfan Says:

    I’ve been through grudens ineptitude after taking dungys team to win the SB, and the lost decade. I’m ready for anything post Brady. Ride or die baby!!!

  46. Oneilbuc Says:

    NC you must be a Brady fan because I can care less about what he done in New England. Steve Young is a hall of famer and he also have a superbowl ring . And he got it at the time football was football dummy. After this year is over you leave when Brady leave because he really didn’t want to come back here anyway. And all those rumors has been confirmed about him and other teams loser ! And we still haven’t beaten the Rams or the saints in the regular season lol 😂 😆 🤣!! You must be a Brady hostage lol 😆 😂!!

  47. TBChucky Says:

    Drinking early, huh Joe?

  48. NCBucfan Says:

    Oneillbuc, wrong!! I hated Brady in NE! I just don’t salivate over Young like you do. Dude played like 8 seasons full time and was alright. Elway was a way better QB then he was! Hell, I like Brad Johnson better then Young. Young got the SB ring because he had a great defense behind him and the best WR of all time. If I’m not mistaken, Prime was on that squad that year. But keep slobbering over Young.

  49. John Mason Says:

    Insane….there is no panic to make a trade like that…we were lucky to get Trask in the first place….Just let him learn under Brady another year…Gezz

  50. NCBucfan Says:

    Plus Oneilbuc, Brady isn’t even my favorite Buc of all time. Brooks is by far! Followed by Ronde

  51. Winny Testaverde Says:

    OneLilBuc calling people dummies is like Antonio Brown calling people loose cannons. Boy is this pear shaped fella mad Brady came outta retirement.

  52. phattitudes Says:

    The Bucs and Bucs fans can get along perfectly well without your opinions, thoughts, ideas, or fantasies. You treat this website like it is the National Inquirer / Bucs edition. Too much worthless crap with a sprinkling of news. No news is no news. Next time the GM job opens up, put in you application. Don’t hold your breath for a response though.

  53. Oneilbuc Says:

    NC. Steve Young was waay better quarterback than Brad Johnson lol 😆 😂. And let’s not talk about defense because every year Brady played in New England he had a top 5 defense. Name 1 year Brady played with a 10th ranked defense in New England??

  54. NCBucfan Says:

    Once again, I could care less what Brady did in NE Oneillbuc, I get it, your a Steve young fanboy, congrats! But if your talking about all time great players, SY had em. Rice and Deion are the best at their positions all time! SY has one ring, congrats! Montana had 4 before him. I guess math wasn’t your strong suit.

  55. geno711 Says:


    Just an FYI, O’Neilbuc won’t give Arians any credit.
    He also was just ‘sh…ting” on Brady when he got here.

    For his own personal reasons, he still comes on here and remains a Winston fan over Brady or Arians.

    He lives in his sad world. Some would be sympathetic towards him. I just believe that he is pathetic.

  56. Oneilbuc Says:

    Geno711. I’ve been here longer than you on this site. You celebrate Brady while I celebrate the bucs . And as far as Jamies goes I don’t hate Jamies like you do so you call me a Jamies fan because I don’t hate him . But at the same time Brady is proving that he needs a all-star team around him on offense to look like he hasn’t declined. He don’t fool me like he done you and the rest of yall Brady lovers!! Lol 😆 🤣!! Defense will always determine a championship team regardless who the quarterback is . That’s a proven fact!!!

  57. NCBucfan Says:

    Agreed geno711, I’m getting that vibe from him.

  58. NCBucfan Says:

    O’Neilbuc, if your a true Buc fan, I have no quarrel with you. Just cause I post on this site rarely, doesn’t mean I’m a fair weather fan though.

  59. Jonny Says:

    Lol nobody is trading even their 4th for Trask. He was projected to go in late rounds last year and Bucs front office drafted a flawed slow footed slow wind-up QB.

  60. tampabuscsbro Says:

    God O’neils level of being a clown are up there with Mike Florio.

    I made a comment about how trading Trask will be dumb. but the fact you like to crap all over Brady a man who was just playing at a league MVP level at the age of 45 is insane.

    >He needs a super start team to be good
    You’re right. Steve young never had any help in san fran.

    Aaron Rodgers never had any pro bowlers on his team, what he did have is didn’t leave because he took all the money.

    Russel Wilson never had a good defense.

    Drew Brees was getting the saints winning records with horrid defenses right?

    Matt Ryan didn’t just get traded away and wasn’t the league MVP the one year his team was good.

    You’re boy Jameis didn’t piss 3 games away near single handedly in 2019. Granted I’m sure you probably believe that he didn’t it was just everyone elses fault and the super bowl next year was a total fluke.

  61. Buczilla Says:

    ROFL, y’all keep feeding that troll, he’ll never leave the underneath of his bridge.

  62. kyle Says:

    haha click bait… nice try joe…

  63. catcard202 Says:

    If the Bucs tried to float Trask out there for trade…It’d look like they were giving up on him & lower his value in the process.

  64. Erik Says:

    We don’t know what brady is going to do after this season. This another opportunity for Trask to continue to train and learn under brady and maybe play in a few games when we are way ahead on the score board. Trask is only making rookie money so its best to see how he does on a few games to see where he stands with this team. If he is traded and is a big success with another team everyone is going to kick themselves for letting him go.

  65. RandsABucFan Says:

    That’s good business plus allows Trask to finally start his career.

  66. steele Says:

    None of us outside know what Christensen really thinks about Trask. None of us outside have seen Trask practice within the past 6 months.

    The idea of trading away Trask makes sense if they really don’t like what they see. And from what limited appearances he’s had (publicly), he is a mixed bag at best. Trade him now for someone like Pickett, and it’s a win. But then the other question is, who would want Trask?

    Could they trade him, plus some other asset (Johnson, Darden) for a young veteran with clear potential, such as Mike White from the Jets?

    Most likely, Trask ain’t moving. He’s going to practice, watch, hold the clip board and probably wind up being a backup for the next two seasons.

  67. Defense Rules Says:

    I’m in awe Joe, you’ve done it again. Managed to create a silly scenario, get some JBFers riled up, AFTER starting this piece with those heartfelt words … ‘IT’S UNINTENTIONAL’. Of course it is. So was WWII.

    Aaron Rodgers sat on the Packers’ bench for THREE years before Brett Favre moved on & he got a chance to start in his FOURTH year (2008). Now under your scenario Joe, the Pack should’ve traded him in one of those first 3 years for a high draft pick so that they could go all-in with an aging Favre. After all, Rodgers had been picked #24 in the 2005 draft (the year the Bucs chose Cadillac Williams at #5), and wasn’t nearly as good as Alex Smith (chosen #1 in that draft, and whose record was 11-19 with SF by Rodgers’ 4th year). Obviously Rodgers was destined to be a loser.

    Reality is that none of us know what we have in Kyle Trask. He MAY be the next Aaron Rodgers OR he MAY be the next Ryan Leaf. I trust however that BA & the gang have better insight into his POTENTIAL than I do. In the meantime, TBChucky said it best … ‘Drinking early, huh Joe?’

  68. Bbro Says:

    Joe would trade Trask just because he’s a free shoes fan n anti UF stop your smoke screens joe we ‘The Bucs’ need to play for now n the future not trade a qb like the Falcons traded off Brett Farve get a life.

  69. Ray Garcia Says:

    I was an original Buc season
    ticket holder from 1976 to 1996.
    Individuals said I would bleed
    Orange, red and white. I hated
    the jokes directed at the team.
    I have not been able to afford
    the current price of tickets
    or season tickets, thus I root
    for the team from a sports bar
    or from the privacy of my home.
    Now the idea of trading Trask
    will alienate many of the
    Buc fans just because the
    organization wants to
    supposedly win NOW! Trask
    has the ability to be a top notch
    QB if he is surrounded by players
    like current QB Tom Brady had/has
    In 2021. Trask has the ability to be
    in a class like that of the Bengal QB!
    Remember what a QB by the name
    of Doug Williams did with a blocking
    offensive line with the Washington
    Redskins? The Bucs have not given
    Trask a chance to play with the
    cavalcade of receivers, runners
    and blockers. Let him learn from
    the GOAT!!!!!!

  70. Todd Says:

    Wasn’t Tom Brady a back-up in New England a few years? Kind of a worthless space-taker who was, “Meh?!”

    What if Trask…?

  71. adam from ny Says:

    if they feel trask is trash they will talk him up big time all season like he’s the next great thing…

    and having a 2 year understudy course with brady, a team will take a shot at him in a trade at some point…

    i think being a rookie type understudy to brady is what will make him be able to be pawned off for a 2nd or 3rd rounder…

    yet i haven’t heard a peep last year about him pressing gabbert and grif for their spots with his stellar play…

    therefore, he is most likely team scraps…

    so maybe his new name should be kyle scraps…

    it’s not his fault that absolutely no one will ever be able to fill the shoes of tommy b in tampa…tom already got us a superbowl…

    and he is the Godliest quarterback we’ve ever had…

    scraps will never fill the shoes of tommy b…

    scraps = traskeroonie

  72. Allen Lofton Says:

    The Good news is that decision is left up the GM and AB who have a better handle on it than just speculation

  73. Venom Gland Says:

    Don’t give him to anyone. I am a FSU fan.

  74. Allbuccedup Says:

    Trask would not get more than a fifth round pick if the Bucs put him on the trade block every team would know hes trash not Trask. Other than Seattle or Carolina theres no other team that needs one. I think the quarterback whisperer is a myth. I mean the second round pick was on the inactive list all year. I think Licht made the pick and Arians don’t want to be bothered with developing him and Leftwhich doesn’t know how.

  75. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This makes no sense…..what good would another pick really do us….We were all in last year & just how much did JTS really help us?

    And we don’t trade our players….never really have. If Trask is good enough that other teams covet him and are willing to give up a high pick…..we need to keep him for ourselves….

    Right now he is our only other QB….instead of trading him, we need to pick up another.

  76. stvcl Says:

    The Bucs currently have a very good prospect for the future in Trask AND for the cheap the next 3 yrs. Why not let him watch and learn from the greatest qb that has ever played the game for another season? Don’t trade away the future, build it through the draft because eventually the cap fairy is gonna come calling wanting paid. The Bucs will eventually have to bite the bullet and play with the players that are under their rookie contracts.

  77. TorontoBucsFan Says:

    Does anyone know of any other teams/sports that require season ticket holders to buy two season’s worth of tickets in one shot? Or is that unprecedented?

  78. Dman Says:

    Joe,so what’s next when Brady retires next season. Face it, we were all dying thinking we might be starting Gabbert this year.

  79. Bucsfan951 Says:

    O’Neil is one angry person. Good lord!

  80. Allbuccedup Says:

    Looks like the Bucs are too lazy to develop young players. In couple of years half the team will be 30 plus Suh will still be on the D-Line at 38.

  81. '79 Defense Says:

    The reality is that hardly ever does any drafted QB live up to any high standard or have a successfully long career. Odds are that Trask won’t either.

  82. Eddie Marz Says:

    I get your logic, Bucs don’t seem to be all in on Trask. If winning now is the priority then your absolutely right.

  83. Idahobucfan4life Says:

    The theory of trading Trask for a 1st rounder is solid. However, it only would’ve worked had the Bucs had him as their solid #2 QB all of last year. That would’ve left other franchises with the feeling that the Bucs had confidence in him. The fact that he never even dressed down on game day….for the entire year, undoubtedly leaves the impression on other franchises that it was a “redshirt” season and he’s not ready for the big-time yet. No way anyone will give up a first or a second rounder for him right now, even if they’re desperate for a QB.

  84. Caleb conner Says:

    No point in trading the kid we drafted when nobody has seen anything in him worth trying to snag him. Keep him to backup and learn when Brady leaves stupid post

  85. Aaron Says:

    Lol like I said y’all always get rid of the best ones only 1 so called good 1 came to Tampa and thats Shady brady but he might go to Miami Lol don’t get rid of the Gator has good legs and a arm but sure Shady will

  86. BayBear0320 Says:

    Feel too many counted Trask out there in Tampa bc he is under TB12, who better to learn/watch under. Keep em there & just watch I believe Trask is gonna surprise some folks down the rd & I pray its right here in Tampa!

    Says The Man Who Thought Johnny Football was the greatest in the Buccaneers should grab him. LOL. It seems everything Joe Bucs Fan writes it has involved with the trade whenever a guy hasn’t even given the chance to prove himself. I don’t think there’s any underlying conditions I just think that they were grooming him.

  88. David Says:

    If it could nab them another pick in the 1st or 2nd, and they don’t think he’s the future, go for it.
    A lot of DBs, WRs, and D lineman throughout the first couple rounds of this draft.

    If They see a lot of potential and think he’s the future, then no.

  89. Bbro Says:

    Just search YouTube Kyle Trask 2020 highlights he needs to be starting for the Bucs when TB12 leaves

  90. Long Season Says:

    I would not trade Trask for a single 2nd rounder. If he is that valuable that he would be a top 10 pick this year, I ask for a 1st and a 4th, or a 2nd and a 3rd. Perhaps the Bucs have a need and know a team that has a player that would fulfill that need and could still get a draft pick.
    If the Bucs are trading him they do not believe in him. I think they do and even if you are all in on winning a Super Bowl, a team cannot ignore the future. Brady said said he would play until 45 but could play until 50. But Brady is still playing on ‘Borrowed Time’ (Styx) with ‘Father Time’ (Stratovarius).

  91. Nprbuc Says:

    NO trade.Trask was taken in the second round for a reason last year. Now we want to trade him away for another unknown in the 2nd? Everything that has come out of the coaches mouths is that Trask is performing as hoped for. If that’s true, why throw him away for a possible flop? They saw something in the kid when they went and got him. I will trust in our coaching staff on this one.

  92. Bucs13 Says:

    Not sure why even a consideration we have NOBODY again go after Baker and we could keep this going after Brady does eventually retire

  93. DieHard Bucs Fan Says:

    Watching his college career along with his assumed development under the Bucs organization I say we keep him

  94. Itzok Says:

    Trade him for a ham sandwich. That’s all he’s worth. If you can get any draft pick pull the trigger

  95. RustyRhinos Says:

    I guess the old saying of “throwing sh!t up on the wall to see what sticks” works in “blog” writing up what Joe wants. Sad to read how much”respect” Joe has for the players on the team he blogs about..
    Year 2 from a 2nd round pick and we should trade him away for a half-a-ham sandwich because you know “Joe knows QBs”, how is Manzel’s illustrious career going again?. And we are “All In” this season…? or is it to make room for Baker M?

  96. Jay Bee Says:

    Super dumb take. Zero chance and shows why journalists write and GM manage teams. They don’t need your help. Beyond naive

  97. MONK Says:

    Sorry, Joe, but this article is just “click bait.” I did read it mainly to see how folks rated Kyle Trask. I watched him at Florida and was very impressed with his coolness, intelligence and, yes, his arm. IMO he’s a keeper.

  98. Oneilbuc Says:

    Monk. I agree with you bro all the people on here that’s haten on Trask either never watched him play or they’re media sheeps!! What ever the media say is what they believe. And let’s be honest Brady ain’t coming back after this year and I’m starting to believe the Miami story a little bit because Gronk haven’t signed yet. And Gronk said doesn’t want to play with no other quarterback but Brady.

  99. Posey99 Says:

    This seems like it’s written to stir the pot. You have to be out of your mind if a team is going to draft a guy @ 64th and trade him before he’s played at snap. Give another case where that has happened anywhere, ever, that didn’t involve the guy getting in trouble. That’s rare, really rare, Joe. And extremely unlikely even if a 1st round pick was offered. AND he’s a cheap backup QB right now.

  100. Posey99 Says:

    “Says The Man Who Thought Johnny Football was the greatest in the Buccaneers should grab him.”

    Yep, spot on. There was others too.

  101. Tony Says:

    If the Bucs were to trade Brady to the Dolphins (which I don’t see this being true) then I’d want Xavier Howard Byron Jones & a couple picks in return at least. Get at least one of the CBs in return.

  102. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Gee, what a dumb idea. Yeah, a lot of teams would love to get their hands on Trask and take a chance. The Bucs need to hold him for later. They WILL be rebuilding next year. Start with someone who has been well-coached and learned from the best.

  103. BigMacAttack Says:

    I would totally trade Trask for a high first round pick. It would also give him an opportunity to play now. Let’s do this. I love Trask too.

  104. Denver Dan Says:

    Of your many horrible ideas, this could be a new low!

  105. Jack Says:

    Makes a lot of sense. Remember Josh Rosen, a hotshot draft prospect from UCLA, drafted 10th overall by the Cardinals in 2018. One year later, after drafting Kyle Murray, the Cardinals traded Rosen to the Dolphins for second and fifth-round picks. Trask is not a first-round pick, and unlike Rosen did not suck, because he did not play, maintaining his value -somewhat like a new undriven car that depreciates once it’s driven off the lot. A second-round pick would be a good value. I would be fine signing Andy Dalton to play side-kick to Brady for (at least a year) and turn the second-round pick into an everyday player.

  106. Jack Says:

    Posey99 – you say you never heard of a second-round pick who never played and was traded to another team? Ever hear of Brett Favre? Second-round pick of the Falcons in 1991. He attempted four passes in his rookie year and was traded to the Packers for a first-round pick the following year. Not playing Trask diminishes his value. Bucs probably would had him compete to start, but given that Brady is back, Bucs can now evaluate if they are better off signing someone like Dalton for the league minimum and find a taker for Trask in exchange for a pick that becomes a regular.

  107. Posey99 Says:

    Favre took snaps, trask hasn’t.

  108. matthew veal Says:

    If he truly grades as the top 2022 qb equivalent, then

    1. Good draft pick in 2021 by the bucs, not a mistake at all
    2. Probably worth keeping! Sounds like a much better player than anyone thought

  109. David Says:

    This writer gets worst as he writes more articles on Kyle Trask and he will not stop until he sees that he is traded. Trading Trask without even given him a chance to play a season at least is irrational. I have never seen a writer be so negative or disliking a player without even taking a snap in NFL.

    All we know Trask was a star at Florida and no one can sees the future. Last time I checked the best 2021 drafted QB was MacJones who is not mobile but accurate as Trask. In fact Trask is more mobile than MacJones. Watch his SEC Championship game. What happened to all running 2021 drafted qb’s ? They all laid eggs. Last year they played Trask in pre-season with fourth stringers to fail. I hope they play him as QB2 this year so he can learn valuable lessons and snaps.

  110. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    O’Neill – Did you make it to highschool ? My 5 year old can put a better sentence together then you . “DUMMY” should not call others “DUMMY” if “DUMMY” is the real “DUMMY” !! GO BUCS AND MVP QB TOM BRADY

  111. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    Kalind- How could YOU call Trask a “SLOB” ? I bet he lives a little better than most of us . And I don’t think anyone here would use the word “SLOB” to describe him. Nobody here knows how good/bad a QB he is let alone his living habits. Go Bucs

  112. James Says:

    Yeah… The guy that couldn’t beat out Blaine gabbert on the depth chart will surely bring a top draft pick in trade… Maybe a 4th rounder… If we are lucky.

  113. SlyPirate Says:

    Bucs 1st plus Trask to PHI for Jordan Davis.


  114. Jeff Says:

    This website has a very strange and negative obsession with Kyle Trask. One might even say irrational considering he hasn’t had a chance to prove himself. Speaks volumes about the biases you claim you don’t have.

    How can Joe have anything against Kyle Trask? He hasn’t even taken a step on the field in the NFL.

    The real strange obsession are those who think Joe is anti-Trask.

    Actions speak louder than words. 😉
