The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one of the best and deepest rosters in football, so considering life after Tom Brady might be something smart to do.
Currently, the team is plagued with injuries all over the roster. They’ve lost Chris Godwin, Leonard Fournette, Lavonte David, and others to injury late in the season. Some will be able to return for the playoffs, others likely won’t return until next season.
The team also isn’t getting any younger with players like Robert Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, and Richard Sherman as well as likely losing Godwin and Robert Jones to free agency this off-season.
Although the team is considered one of the best in football and has a shot at the Super Bowl with Tom Brady at the helm, thinking post-Brady with North Carolina’s Sam Howell would be intriguing.
At one point, Howell was considered one of the top, if not the top, quarterbacks in this class.
Howell does a lot of things right, and he’s a pocket passer that has the ability to move around in the pocket. Sitting a year or two behind Brady would help with Howell’s development.
The Buccaneers are likely to continue being one of the top teams, but planning for the future is ideal. Howell might be a project, but Bruce Arians is one of the best quarterback coaches in the NFL.
