Shannon Sharpe is one of the more brutally honest individuals on TV. Overall, he is allowed to be this way as he actually has the resume. He has won three Super Bowl titles and he revolutionized the Tight End position. Although some might not like what he has to say, you have to respect it because of his experience. He knows what it takes to win at the Professional level, and he has always backed up his talk with stats, or his own actions. That said, you can imagine he has had a lot to say about free agency.
Throughout the last few days, we have seen a ton of interesting stories. Perhaps the biggest story is that Aaron Rodgers is likely to go to the New York Jets. However, Rodgers isn't the only quarterback to be blessed with a new team. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they would be signing Baker Mayfield to a one-year deal. He will be their Tom Brady replacement, although Sharpe is less than impressed with this move.
Shannon Sharpe Rips The Bucs
Over the years, Sharpe and Skip Bayless have had harsh debates about whether or not Baker Mayfield is any good. Sharpe always argues that Mayfield is just okay, but cannot lead a team to the Super Bowl. Consequently, he felt like going from Tom Brady to Mayfield is a bit of a stretch. So much so that he theorizes that Mike Evans and Chris Godwin could be looking for trades, very soon. "Can you imagine going from Tom Brady to Baker Mayfield?" Sharpe asked. "I'm surprised Mike Evans or Chris Godwin haven't requested a trade."
This might be a little harsh, but it is clear that Sharpe is just telling the truth, at least in his mind. Mayfield is part of the Buccaneers' rebuild, and there isn't much of a chance of him being there beyond just one season. That said, the Bucs probably won't care too much if he doesn't pan out. Either way, let us know what you think of Sharpe's take, down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news from around the sports world.
