Incase you haven’t heard, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in need of a starting quarterback after Tom Brady’s retirement. We’ve already covered the multiple rumors of who the Bucs could be targeting. From Aaron Rodgers to Russell Wilson to Deshaun Watson and seemingly everyone in-between. We’ve also told you it won’t be easy.
File this under the “I told you so” category, as the Buccaneers powers to be don’t see this happening either.
Bucs' Bruce Arians on elite QBs not being as available as reported: "I like about eight of them, but they're all playing for somebody else. I don't see guys giving up quarterbacks unless they've got a really good 2 sitting on their bench, because this draft is a little thin."

Jason Licht echoing Bruce Arians’ thoughts about trading for a quarterback: It’s really hard to do because you have to find a trading partner that wants to give up a great quarterback. That’s rare.

Indeed, team’s don’t tend to trade away starting quarterbacks, it seldom happens in this league. Especially with the likes of Rodgers, Wilson or even Watson. As Arians points out this draft is a little thin at the quarterback position. Look for the team to add a veteran via free agency, one that won’t have the star power of the three previously mentioned.
