Tom Brady will be 44 by the time the 2021 season starts. Even though he’s shown no evidence of slowing down, there’s at least a chance he’ll stop playing eventually.
With few immediate needs, the Buccaneers used their second-round pick on quarterback Kyle Trask — making him the third QB on the club’s roster behind Brady and Ryan Griffin.
Trask, 23, is looking forward to being in the same position group with the seven-time Super Bowl champion.
“They definitely have a great system going on down there in Tampa Bay,” Trask said in a video conference Friday night. “And the opportunity to learn from one of the greats that I watched growing up, has been one of my favorites — so to have that opportunity is truly remarkable. But nevertheless, I’m going to come in, work my tail off, and do whatever I can to help this team.”
As Bucs General Manager Jason Licht put it Friday, Brady isn’t worried about anyone taking his job and understands why the club would draft a quarterback. Time will tell if Trask can in fact become Brady’s successor with Tampa Bay.
