With Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston officially being suspended for the first three games of the 2018 NFL regular season, the big question around the league is: now what?
How do the Bucs handle Winston now? They not only have to think short=term with the three upcoming games that Winston will miss, but they also like have to have some long-term plan B in place, or at least in their minds, since Winston’s next suspension could be a league ban from the NFL.
One pundit, football author Michael Lombardi, thinks the Bucs should go out and acquire Teddy Bridgewater from the Jets to not only start in the opening three games, but perhaps be a long-term answer.
If I'm the Bucs, I call the Jets and see if I can trade for Teddy Bridgewater and put real competition behind Winston. Winston is more hype than producer.

Winston more hype than producer? Is there truth to that? And is Bridgewater a plan this team should seriously consider?
