With no cost agency just about a 7 days away, we will get started to see additional movement within the walls of One Buc spot and the roster will start off to get condition about the subsequent few months.
Don’t expect the Buccaneers to be main player in no cost agency, but they will want to indicator at least 1 quarterback to backup Jameis Winston in 2019. Bruce Arians has manufactured it recognised at the combine that the staff will most probable be transferring on from Ryan Fitzpatrick as he does not want Winston to be hunting about his shoulder all through the yr all over again.
With restricted possibilities on the no cost agency industry, the staff may perhaps have fascination in Brett Hundley, who has been Aaron Rodgers and Russel Wilson’s backup the previous pair several years.
Hundley has performed in a total of 15 games in his profession and boast a 3-6 file. Out of people 15 games, he has only started off 9 of them. He has a 59.5% completion percentage and has thrown for nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions. When Hundley obtained the prospect to prove himself in 2017, he unsuccessful to get edge, so it’s hard to see him having a serious prospect to get started wherever else. He will probable be a backup quarterback for the rest of his profession.
Do The Buccaneers Have to have Him?
I do not consider Tampa Bay desires him, as I consider there are better possibilities out there. Hundley was a 5th round pick again in 2015, so coming into that draft, there was no serious hoopla surrounding him. As talked about right before, Hundley had a prospect to seriously get off and uncover a wonderful spot in this league again in 2017 when Rodgers obtained hurt, but he was mostly unimpressive in people nine games. Certainly, Tampa Bay does want a again up quarterback, but other possibilities are out there.
What Will Hundley Price?
A backup quarterback ordinarily will make wherever from $2-$5 million bucks. Of course, the additional set up veterans can press that quantity increased, but that is ordinarily what we see for a backup quarterback.
Will It Occur?
No. I just don’t see it. The Buccaneers would be better off re-signing Ryan Griffin and drafting a quarterback in the afterwards rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft. Hundley will land someplace, it just won’t be in Tampa Bay.
