Tampa Bay unloads key starter after Brady's exit

Mike Evans

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are having a hard time admitting they are in a rebuilding phase after Tom Brady has officially retired. The NFL great hung up the cleats for the last time this offseason, and now is a part-owner of the Raiders, bringing the Tuck Rule debacle full circle.

In doing so, the Bucs hired the services of Baker Mayfield as their interim quarterback and he barely won the starting job. Despite the great things the head coach has said about Mayfield, he's not Tom Brady.

Mike Evans' agent announced today via his agent that they will not be pursuing contract talks after Week 1 of the NFL regular season. Evans is one of the best receivers in football when he is healthy and when paired with Davante Adams, that gives Jimmy Garoppolo one of the best receiving cores he's had in a long time.

For a third-round pick, I could see the Bucs stacking draft picks and it would save them some cap space since Devin White will want a pay raise soon.
