Unlike the quarterbacks drafted before him, Buccaneers second-round draft pick Kyle Trask knows he’s not competing for a starting job this summer. That job belongs to Tom Brady.

But Trask says he’s a competitor by nature and that he’ll always compete every day, no matter his role on any team.

“No matter what day it is or what depth I’m on the roster I’m going to compete every single day,” Trask said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Trask said Brady texted him a few days after the draft and they’re looking forward to working together. At rookie minicamp, Trask says his top priorities include getting leaner to be as quick as possible in the pocket and throwing accurately while moving in the pocket.

Being around Brady can’t hurt, and Brady will like working with a competitor.

  1. “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right” – Henry ford

  2. You have to wonder about this guy’s desire and his drive. Why is it acceptable to NOT want to compete for a starting job?
    I wouldn’t want him in my locker room if he thinks he’s not trying to take Tom Brady’s job.

  3. The backup QB to Tom Brady is wide open. When Kyle Trask learns the playbook, that backup QB is what Trask is competing for. The Bucs know they won’t win a lot of games with Griffin and Gabbert under center if Brady is out for any length of time. There is a huge drop off between Brady and Griffin & Gabbert. The Bucs drafted Trask to close that gap. This is a great opportunity for Kyle Trask.
