Brady’s performance in the game also saw him claim the Super Bowl MVP award. Thus there’s very little doubt as to whom the franchise is going with as their QB1 in the upcoming season. 

While Tom Brady remains the undisputed QB1 in Tampa, the Buccaneers made a move in the draft that shows that they have their sights set on the future.

Tom Brady eager to help out rookie QB

Florida Gators QB Kyle Trask was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The QB had a stellar final college season, recording over 4,200 passing yards and 43 touchdowns.

The rookie QB, now headed to Tampa, was recently asked whether Tom Brady had reached out to him after he was drafted. Trask confirmed that Brady called him and talked about running some drills together soon. 

 

“Yeah, he actually did, he reached out to me a couple of days after the draft and you know, he was just making sure, or checking in on when I get into town so we can get together and maybe do some throwing and things like that,” Trask said while appearing on the NFL Network.

Getting a call from possibly the greatest NFL QB of all time was quite an experience for the young quarterback. “It meant a lot to me,” said Trask.

Trask further added that even apart from Brady, some other Buccaneers players had also recently reached out to him.

“Not only Tom, but a couple of other guys have reached out so you can definitely tell they have a great culture and a great group of people in this building and I can’t wait to get started,” said Trask.

Trask will not be having hopes of starting a game for the Buccaneers anytime soon. With the evergreen Tom Brady around for at least another season, Trask is expected to sit through his rookie year.

But when the time is right, the Buccaneers will hope that Trask can take over the reins from the legendary QB.
