Concerning Kyle Trask Report Emerges After Tom Brady’s Retirement
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will consider a wide array of options in the wake of Tom Brady's retirement. One possible internal candidate is Kyle Trask, whom the team spent a second-round pick on in 2021 as a potential successor in the making.
However, the latest report on Trask doesn't paint the most encouraging picture.
Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times notes the former No. 64 overall pick "has not been a quick study" in the NFL. Trask is still "trying to learn" the Bucs' system, which is now slated to change with Byron Leftwich out as offensive coordinator.
It's too early to say for sure, but the Florida product is approaching bust territory considering where he was drafted. He's logged one appearance for Tampa Bay so far with Brady being an iron man under center, but more concerning than his inexperience is his inability to nail down the playbook.
Serving as Brady's understudy presented the perfect learning opportunity for Trask without much pressure. He apparently didn't capitalize, though, and now would be in line to challenge for starting duties if he was further along. The former second-rounder could even still be in the conversation if the Buccaneers opt for a rebuild.
Trask's development, or lack thereof, will certainly be a hot topic in Tampa this offseason.
