Over the past few years, the Tampa Bay Bucs have been the hottest ticket in town with Tom Brady as quarterback.
Well, Tom Brady has retired for good this time around, and the Tampa Bay Bucs organization knows not only are they not a viable Super Bowl contender, but they likely will not be fighting for a playoff spot.
Last season, a ticket to see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play was the fifth most costly in the league on average. The squad was unimpressive, but Brady was still at quarterback for what many speculated could have been his final season. It was, and now that he’s gone, the costs have dropped dramatically.
According to Tick Pick, through Action Network’s Darren Rovell, Buccaneers ticket prices have dropped from fifth-most costly in the NFL last year to third-cheapest this year. The average price has dropped from $359 to $179.
If the team wants fans to show up, those prices had to drop drastically.
Here’s how fans are reacting to it:
Back in March, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Baker Mayfield.
Mayfield spent time with the Panthers and Rams after his time in Cleveland came to an end when the team secured Deshaun Watson for the future.
In that five-game stint in Los Angeles, Mayfield completed 82 of 129 passes for 850 yards with four touchdowns against two interceptions. While Mayfield is good, he is not a draw and certainly not a franchise-changing quarterback that fans will get behind unless he shows results.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
