Everyone assumed Blaine Gabbert was gone after the Buccaneers drafted Kyle Trask in the second round. But coach Bruce Arians said Friday night that the Bucs want Gabbert to return to a quarterbacks room that already includes Tom Brady, Trask and Ryan Griffin.

The Bucs recently re-signed Griffin.

“I really hope that we can get Blaine done, soon,” Arians said, via joebucsfan.com. “Blaine has proven what he can do for us. So, yeah, hopefully we can get that done soon.”

Gabbert wears No. 11, the same number Trask wore at the University of Florida. It appears Trask will wear No. 2 with the Bucs. UF’s official football account posted a photo of Trask in a No. 2 Bucs jersey.

  1. I love my Bucs, but they wasted money of on re-signing Brown. They don’t need him to win. I can say then same thing about Gabbert, Waste of money, and they don’t need him to win either. I know Brady likes Brown and Ariens likes Gabbert. That doesn’t change the facts. The Bucs don’t need either player to win this coming season. The young receivers need playing time to continue their development. If the Bucs want a veteran QB, besides Griffin backing up Brady, there are better choice than Gabbert.

  2. They better be ready, because Brady will be out by week 9 with a knee injury. His surgically repaired knee is not going to hold up the entire season

  3. Why did everyone assume that Gabbert was gone? We know Arians loves him. We know Arians hates playing rookies.

  4. Gabbert knows this system since his days in Arizona… He can be on the sideline with Trask helping him learn and understand quicker during practice and games…
    Griffin is most likely the odd man out…
