Carson Palmer joined The Jim Rome Show on Tuesday and discussed his feelings on the new duo of Bucs quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bruce Arians, Palmer’s former coach in Arizona, and what that “no risk it, no biscuit” offense may look like with Tampa Bay.

“I love the mesh,” Palmer said. “There’s not doubt, it’s not going to be Bruce’s offense from 2016 in Arizona or 2012 in Pittsburgh. There’s going to be some changes.”

Palmer discussed the openness of Arians to work with his quarterbacks, claiming that Brady will bring dozens of plays and concepts that he loves and feels comfortable with that will find their way into the offense. Palmer even argued that when he didn’t like a play while they were game-planning with Arizona, Arians would rip the a page out of the playbook.

“He’s very open,” Palmer said. “Especially when he’s getting insight and ideas from Tom Brady. He’ll listen to them and they’ll move forward. I really like the gel and the mesh of these two minds and histories in this league, coming together and hopefully forming another Super Bowl run for Brady.”

With the existing weapons on offense already the Bucs offense is going to be fun to watch. If they add more weapons and upgrade the trenches the offense will be very, very fun to watch.

To be fair, practically anyone on this board could/should make the same conclusion. Doesn’t take Palmer telling us for us to conclude adding Brady and Gronk requires some changes to BA’s offense. It was already changing a bit just with the Brady addition anyway. Team’s not paying an additional $10M to Gronk for him to only get 50 targets opposite OJ/Brate either. Excited to see how the offense develops and what RB is added. Having Gronks definitely lessens the pressure a bit for grabbing a WR3 high in the draft. Can really see this draft focusing on depth on both… Read more »

Now I can see the Bucs maybe even focusing on best player available regardless of position to get that needed depth.

Think we gotta get a RT and RB somewhere in first 3 rounds at least. Other than that I agree on bpa. Definitely takes the immediate need of WR3 down a notch

I think they are positioning themselves do do what they need to strengthen their weaknesses. Oline and RB are our biggest needs to protect Brady and give him time as well as creating a running game. With Brady, Gronk, Evans, Godwin, RoJo and Brate we need a pass catching RB and Oline to make the Offense onstoppable. On Defense we need to make sure our Safety position is solid and we should be good to go. Our first 3 rounds should be Oline and RB, everything else can be BPA for depth.

If Gronk is going to make $10m, then the Bucs got screwed because NE would have had to trade him for nothing. His $10m would put the Pats over the cap limit even before the draft. They have a lot of Dead Money on their books.

The trade was Gronk + a 7th rd pick for a 4th rd pick. The $10M is for his existing agreement with the Pats.

It worked out for everyone. Gronk wasn’t coming back except for the Bucs, and the Patriots got a free fourth rounder. Buccaneers are all in for two years, people crying about a fourth rounder really need to see the reality of this situation.

Gronk may cost $10 million, which many have said is more money than any tight end is worth in a Bruce Arians offense, especially when the team has Evans and Godwin. Last year, many posters argued what a waste it was to pay Cam Brate, even though he lead the league in TD passes the previous years. He even scored more TDs than Gronk for a couple years. After seeing the tight end production last season in BAs offense, I would say those people were right. I think there’s a bigger name influencing these decisions: the Glazers. The Glazers have… Read more »

Shocker..someone missed the entire point of the article.

This won’t be BAs offense.

I thought the point was Bruce Arians is making changes to his offense with Brady and Gronk. My point was the Glazers should be thanked for driving these moves.

Damn. Is Jim Rome still on the air? I got tired of him when he was on WDAE at lunch time more than a decade ago.

While all of the attention with respect to Gronkowski is his receiving capabilities, don’t forget his blocking capabilities, both in the passing game and in the running game. This is an upgrade on our run game, to which will be added the skills of whomever we draft in the OT and RB positions, quite likely one or two picks in each position. That is also what OJ Howard provides too – he played nearly double the snaps of Brate (782 vs. 431) because last season he is a great blocker, both in passing and running. Running 2-TE sets with Gronk… Read more »

I agree Naples! Very dangerous offense in the making! No guarantee that OJ will be the odd man out either. Perhaps it’s Brate who is packaged with a draft pick to move up to get a particular player. At least now we have options! I do know this… if we don’t provide blocking for TB it doesn’t matter who lines up where! I’m just saying…

I agree it’s possible but return won’t be as good as OJ… which is fine if we think he’s the one we need to keep. We just shouldn’t expect to package brate + rd3 and move back into middle of rd2 (not insinuating this was your stance, just a general observation).

I think brate is someone we could package and move up a bit in rd4 or 5. Probably get a rd6 for him straight up

Yup – understand now that we gave up our #139 pick for Gronk, so improving on our later pick in the fourth could be useful to pick up someone we want.

NC Greenbeard

Agree it could be useful. Just think some of us might overvalue brate vs what we’d actually get for him. Not saying it couldn’t help… let’s just not carried away with what the value will be

Agreed, and Brate’s past torn labrum injury in his hip is likely to complicate moving him due to the difficulties of getting a proper physical (though Gronk didn’t seem to have an issue). He’s likely fully healed by now but did still have issues with it last season.

It’s beginning to look like a big time talent at RB is going to be the major need in this developing offense. If the Bucs do pick up one of the several young talents at RB that r available in the draft then perhaps the only thing that can stop this offense is injury!

I found on this Tampa Bay Buccaneers facts page that Tom Brady has the most QB wins (including playoffs) from 2010-2019. 138 wins is a crazy stat! I can’t wait to see what Bruce Arians and Brady will do for the Bucs. https://prosportsoutlook.com/transaction_type/facts-to-know/?league=nfl&team=2495

Running a day behind so forgive me for sliding an off topic question in. I understand we are trading our pick 139 (compensatory) pic for Gronk. I thought I read somewhere that you couldn’t trade Comp picks. I’m probably wrong but could someone clarify that for me? Obviously the Buc’s wouldn’t do it if it was against the rules but I read again where a compensatory pick could not be traded.

I also just read that percy Harvin passed a physical and said he wants to play for the Bucs. Lol the Brady effect. I know this team is real low on cap space, but seeing percys workout the man is in killer shape. He could probably be had for a one year low cost deal. Any thoughts people? He’d be the perfect speed threat if he is in fact healthy. This is looking like a damn Madden team. As bucs fans we’ve never known this kind of attention to the team or the hype. Yeah we kept saying this is… Read more »

Harvin wasn’t even that good fresh out of college! Now He has been out of the league for 4 years! I think I’ll take my chances with a rookie or one of the FA’s that are still available, preferably 2 rookies to battle it out. I would guess S Miller is better than Harvin right now, he just hadn’t had a real chance and doesn’t have the name recognition.

I agree. His major issues were migraine related which as a fellow migraine sufferer, if you’ve never had one you can’t imagine the pain. Supposedly that’s under control. It’s just funny how Tom Brady turned this into the must play for team in the league.

Pass on Harvin. And this from a big Gator fan. Too many injury/headache issues, too much drama. Not sure we could get him under the cap. Does another team still have his rights or no?

Bet Edelman is released by Pats to get more cap space. That would be perfect piece to the puzzle at receiver. Again, I like Akers as a rb. I like RB’s that have played QB.

I’ve been saying that there will be changes even before gronk. Brady utilizes the short passing game and likes to get the ball out of his hands quickly. The offense while having Arians concepts will also have Brady’s thumbprint on it too. Gronk can be lined up inside, outside, tight to the line, and so on. So what if Arians offense never used the tight end? That will be changing and it’s something that we should all be Very excited about.
