    This is the part that scares me. What if

      the Bucs don’t Tag or sign Winston before Free Agency starts. I’m Ok with it either way. I can see both sides. Then What if

    the Bucs fail to sign a QB in free agency.

    Brady stays in NE
    Rivers signs with Indy
    Tannehill stays in Tennessee
    Bridgewater signs in Miami(his hometown)
    Brees stays in New Orleans
    Cam Newton goes to Chicago

    This to me would be the worst case scenario as the Bucs would then be forced to trade for a QB that would be a lesser option than Winston. So unless the Bucs have a backdoor agreement with a QB not signing or tagging Winston is a risky move IMO.

    That would be career suicide for Licht/Arians

    There are more QBs available than starting spots. Someone will be available. In the above scenario where does Winston go? If he goes out and doesn’t get $$ he’s looking for he may still come back for less even if we don’t tag him.

    Not too worried about this… and frankly IMO, we know the flop and will have to see where the turn and the river cards fall.

    I think the best we can hope for is a pair with an ace kicker.

    Sorry- bad analogy.

    Bridgewater is not going to the Dolphins. They already said Fitz would be retained for next season who is their placeholder for Tua or whoever they draft. Chicago GM has publicly stated that Trubisky will be their starting QB in 2020.

    Indy drafts Love so scratch Rivers.

    Cam Newton sucks so he’s out.

    Brady is too expensive.

    Rivers should retire.

    Bridgewater with possibly Carr and Dalton will be in play.

    Don’t think Love is going that high and Tua is going to drop based on injury concerns. Not sure how far but he’s going to drop but he will drop.

    what is said after the season does not necessarily mean that is what will happen at the beginning of the season.

    I really think Detriot will take a QB at 3 and trade Stafford.

    Stafford would be a perfect fit here and his cap number isn’t bad. It would take pick 14 and possibly a player to get it done.

    Derek Carr and Andy Dalton should be decent backup plans if we can’t trade for Stafford.

    Hadn’t given Stafford much thought. I’ve said from the start that option A is Bridgewater. Option B is Dalton. Stafford would be a really good option also.

    In this scenario, Winston is still available and could possibly be retained for cheap as the starting jobs would be next to nothing left for him.  Not that I see it playing out that way, just playing devil’s advocate…..

    Stafford is the dream QB for Arians. For those that think he can recreate the Palmer magic, Stafford is that guy dialed up to 11.

    If Rivers signs with Indy, that would probably make Brissett (sp) available.
    If Newton signs with Chicago, that would probably make Trubisky (sp) available.
    If Bridgewater signs in Miami,  that would make Fritzpatrick available. (2nd time is the charm).
    If Winston goes elsewhere that might also make a QB available.

    Dalton would most likely also be available.

    Then there is always the draft.

    Disclaimer: I am not advocating any of these QB’s to become the Bucs starting QB.

    Best option may be “Lose for Lawrence.”

    Stafford isn’t leaving Detroit.

    If they tried, the fans would torch the town.
