Who are the Bucs' potential QB options for 2023?

SMG Logo By Luke Easterling of SMG | Slide 1 of 10: We'll start with the least likely dream scenario. Yes, Jackson is technically set to become a free agent after this season, but the Ravens can place the franchise tag on the former league MVP for the next two years. They'd obviously be wise to do so, considering Jackson's ridiculous success and rare skill set. If, however, they'd prefer to entertain trade offers from other teams instead of using the tag or giving Jackson a huge contract extension, the Bucs would be wise to see what it would take. Yes, Tampa Bay would have to do some serious work with their awful salary cap situation to make a new contract for Jackson work, and it would cost multiple first-round picks and more. But if all of those planets aligned, this would be a grand slam for the Bucs.
