The Bucs signed rookie quarterback Kyle Trask to a four-year contract. The deal, first reported by Tampa Bay Times reporter Rick Stroud, totals $5.535 million and includes a signing bonus of $1.38 million.

Trask was drafted with the Bucs’ second-round pick and was the 64th overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. The former Florida star was the leading passer in the SEC last year with 4,283 yards with 43 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The Bucs now have four quarterbacks under contract for 2021, including Tom Brady, Blaine Gabbert, Ryan Griffin and Trask.

The only two members of Tampa Bay’s 2021 rookie class that remain unsigned are outside linebacker Joe Tryon, the team’s first-round pick, and interior offensive lineman Robert Hainsey.

Wow! There goes the season… says drdneast! What a shame that they would draft a noodle armed kid and then have the balls to sign him to a four year contract!

Good news! They must have liked the potential they saw. I hope the kid does well and wish him the best. Congrats young man! Go Bucs!

Did you think they were going to cut him before training camp. This is a standard contract given to all draft picks. Even the money is predetermined. I should call you a name but I’m not.

This contract is fully in keeping with the standard rookie contract schedule for a 64th pick.

Having said that… they wouldn’t have signed him if they weren’t pleased with the selection.

Even if he was awful to start (doesn’t sound like it) a team is not going to let their second rounder go and not sign him lol. Signing him to his rookie deal doesn’t mean anything.

You beat me to the answer. Can’t remember any team not signing their second round pick, ever… Has anyone?

Not a two but a one. Bo Jackson refused to sign.

Of course not. They would automatically admit they made a big mistake. Trump won the election too.

Excellent. That gives him a year or two to learn under the greatest. He will get a chance to compete against our Defense, and that has to help. The criticisms of his arm are odd since Brady had the same criticisms too. I care about production. How did he do against the sec? He will have the luxury of throwing the ball to the greatest receivers in the game being protected by a much improved offensive line. I cannot wait for the preseason!

Ryan Griffin 2.0.

So we draft a player who we hope we don’t see on the field for two years. How does drafting him help us get to and win a SB this season. Not one of you Trask lovers have answered that question yet because you can’t. If you see this rookie on the field during the regular season and the Bucs don’t have a huge lead then the season will be over.

And on and on it goes. Aaron Rodgers has the same view on the selection of Jordan Love. He’s pouting too.

Dryeast Is just a baby. He whines like a toddler not getting his Way. He’s a broken record like big sombrero who has gone mia after hilariously being proven wrong last year. Dryeast then throws it in everyone’s face that he’s been a season ticket holder since the Shining debuted on the big screen, thus making his opinion more valid than everyone else’s because of it. He’s a BBB. Nothing more.

Welcome to what was our former world in Patriots land. You signed what you could afford, cross your fingers and hope Brady stayed healthy or you somehow got lucky with a lower draft pick.
