It’s the dawn of a new era for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The team won’t have Tom Brady under center next season, with Baker Mayfield set to take the reins of the offense.
Also, defensive anchor Devin White recently requested a trade, so their defense might also take a massive hit.
Notably, though, it won’t all be bad at Raymond James Stadium next season.
At least, fans can look forward to watching his team play with some beautiful throwback uniforms, one of the most iconic in the league.

However, as it usually happens with this kind of stuff, not all fans were all that pleased about the throwback jerseys, which prompted mixed reactions on social media.

Picked the right year.. this Bucs team could rival the 0-16 one that wore these as their primary.

The NFC South is going to be one of the weakest divisions in football again next season.
So, even though the New Orleans Saints should be favored to take the division home and clinch a playoff berth even with a losing record, there’s still some hope for the new-look Buccaneers to get the job done.
But going from Tom Brady to Baker Mayfield should bum nearly every single fan out, and it’s not like Todd Bowles’ first year in charge of the team was even slightly encouraging.
The Bucs quickly went from Super Bowl contenders to a playoff-hopeful team, and that honeymoon with Brady and Rob Gronkowski didn’t last as long as they would expect.
But hey, at least they have another Vince Lombardi trophy to show for it, as well as some nice throwback jerseys.NEXT: Fans React To Today's Devin White Request
