Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This all depends on the future of Tom Brady. The seven-time Super Bowl champion retired then unretired this past offseason. He will turn 45 in August. While it would be classic Brady to play another five years and win three more Super Bowls, in reality, the end of his career is almost here.
Once Brady retires, the Buccaneers will need to start over at quarterback.
Kyle Trask, a second-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2021, could be the long-term successor to Brady. But that’s no guarantee.
If Brady does retire at the end of the 2022 season, it won’t be easy for the Buccaneers to land a new quarterback via the draft. In all likelihood, Tampa Bay will be picking near the bottom of the first round.
As one of the Super Bowl favorites, the Bucs could even be picking at No. 32 overall.
To move up to the top 10, they would need to pull off a blockbuster trade. A more affordable option could be to trade for Love.
Whether the Packers would consider a trade for Love remains to be seen. It could depend on Aaron Rodgers’ future. If Rodgers retires in 2023, it wouldn’t make much sense to trade Love. But if he commits to playing longer, general manager Brian Gutekunst should consider a trade.
