Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting QB in 2022 will be Kyle Trask
That might be what some of you reading this thought when you saw the name Kyle Trask. I don’t necessarily blame you for not knowing who the guy is, as he’s mostly served as a third-stringer in Tampa Bay since the Buccaneers drafted him in the second round of last year’s draft.
Trask played college football at Florida where he threw for nearly 4,300 yards and 43 touchdowns during his senior season in 2020. Several mock drafts had Trask as a first-round prospect but the Buccaneers were lucky to land him in the second round.
When I spoke with The Pewter Plank, FanSided’s Buccaneers blog, they said Trask is probably the guy and that perhaps the team will rotate him with seasoned veteran Blaine Gabbert. This would be similar to what the Bears did with Andy Dalton and Justin Fields last year and we saw how well that worked out for Chicago (sarcasm). So, yeah, do that, Bucs!
All jokes aside, Trask deserves to get a shot in Tampa Bay. He’s a second-round pick and had a year to sit and learn behind arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. If that isn’t enough for him to be able to start, I’m not sure anything will be.
