The Tampa Bay Buccaneers saw their 2022 season come to an end after a blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card Round.
While the Bucs made the playoffs, this was not a typical season from a Tom Brady-led team. The Bucs only got into the playoffs due to an underwhelming performance across the entire NFC South and the Bucs were able to make the playoffs with only an 8-9 record.
The franchise will be entering this offseason with plenty of questions and Todd Bowles talked about the fact that they will be looking to reload and not rebuild. With that in mind, these are four free agents the team could re-sign that would drastically change their plans for the 2023 NFL Draft.
4 free agents that could alter the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2023 NFL Draft
There is no question that there isn’t a bigger free agent for the Bucs than Tom Brady and whether or not they can re-sign him will really dictate how they approach the entire offseason. If they re-sign Brady, the front office will almost certainly look to put a roster together that can compete next year for a Super Bowl with the understanding that Tom Brady’s career is coming to a close in the near future.
If the Bucs are unable to re-sign Brady, Bowles’ belief of reloading and not rebuilding may not come to fruition. They could pivot towards building toward the future and while they may not draft a quarterback, they could start to build out the roster to be competitive down the road once they find their future quarterback.
