Are the Bucs already looking beyond Jameis Winston?

Rumors aplenty.

There’s not much going on surrounding the Buccaneers this time of year, but it doesn’t mean that people aren’t talking.

JC Cornell of the Draft Network has been really glued in to the Bucs and said Monday that Tampa Bay may already their eyes set on the immediate and distant future. It may include a veteran under center to show the way for a rookie.

Acquiring Philip Rivers if they decide to move on from Jameis Winston wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing. But that’s just a short-term scenario. The intriguing thing about Cornell’s tweets is the mention of Washington Huskies quarterback Jacob Eason.

Cornell has some intel. However, NFL reporter Benjamin Allbright, who is also plugged-in well across the league with sources, reported that team executives across the league feel that Rivers to the Bucs is a thing as well as their interest in Eason.

We’re still in January and it seems like the Buccaneers have been a featured team of the month when it comes to rumors surrounding the quarterback position. The best part is there is still a ways to go for any decisions to be made.

Keep holding on, folks. This ride is far from over.
