Buccaneers to potentially bring Seahawks’ QB Geno Smith to replace Tom Brady after hiring coach Dave Canales

The possibility of finding a successor to Tom Brady, who may even surpass him, seems to have caught the attention of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Brady, who retired after an illustrious 23-year career that included winning seven Super Bowls, has left some big shoes to fill. However, the Buccaneers have a strong roster and could opt to go with an experienced quarterback to continue their winning ways.

If this is indeed their strategy, the Buccaneers may have their sights set on Geno Smith, a highly regarded All-Pro quarterback currently playing for the Seattle Seahawks. With his impressive credentials, Smith could be a strong contender for the role of Brady’s successor

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made an intriguing hiring decision by bringing on Dave Canales from the Seattle Seahawks as their new offensive coordinator. 

Interestingly, despite his vast experience, Canales has never been responsible for calling plays throughout his coaching career. This has raised some eyebrows and led to speculation that his hiring may be part of a larger plan to lure Geno Smith from the Seahawks. 

Smith, who has served as a backup for the past seven years, signed a one-year deal this off-season but was recently elevated to starter after Russell Wilson was traded away from the team. With Smith set to become a free agent in just a few weeks, the Buccaneers may be positioning themselves to make a move for him

Following his incredible season, Smith is looking to capitalize on his success and could draw interest from other teams if he fails to reach an agreement with the Seahawks.

With Dave Canales recently joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their new offensive coordinator, Smith may see the team as a potential landing spot. Seahawks General Manager John Schneider has acknowledged a connection between Canales and the Buccaneers, adding to the speculation of a potential Buccaneers trade

of Smith to Tampa Bay.

He said: “Obviously, Dave has a great relationship with Drew (Lock) and Geno. Shoot, he did a great job working with Geno (and) staying after practice with Drew.

“Those guys would work their tails off for a good hour, an hour and a half after practice. They’d be out there in the dark throwing the ball, working on footwork and ball carriage and everything. … But free agency doesn’t start until the middle of March so there’s a huge period here where we have time to work through things.”
