The question of Tom Brady’s future with the team obviously came up. Arians gave the obligatory answer of “I haven’t talked to him yet. But take all the time he needs and we’ll see”. Then when answering the follow up question of if not Brady then who? Arians dropped this head turner.
Bruce Arians says if Tom Brady retires he would be comfortable with the QBs on this roster in Blaine Gabbert and Kyle Trask, but he would look behind "Door No. 2," since that's how they found Tom Brady.

Coach speak is definitely a factor here, I mean we didn’t expect him to say “we’re screwed without Tom”, or “we need to sign someone because our quarterback room sucks”. But if he or anyone else thinks Blaine Gabbert is the guy, or Kyle Trask is ready, then it’s going to be a long season next year.
I think it’s safe to say that if Brady doesn’t come back the Buccaneers will be looking behind “door number two”. Let the speculation begin to who that may be.
