Tampa Bay Buccaneers' final 53-man roster projection for 2022: Entire roster will revolve around Tom Brady

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers open the 2022 NFL regular season on the road against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Sept. 11.

With quarterback Tom Brady already retiring once this offseason, every aspect of the Bucs' roster will be constructed to give him the best chance at another Super Bowl. That includes carrying a whopping seven wide receivers -- a testament to the Bucs' much-improved depth at the position by the signing of Russell Gage and later Julio Jones, but it's also a move done in hopes of avoiding last year's injury bug.

Unfortunately, it's already gotten ahold of the offensive line, losing center Ryan Jensen and guard Aaron Stinnie to left knee injuries. Jensen's backup Robert Hainsey left the third preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts with a left ankle injury, and Hainsey's replacement Nick Leverett left the game with a shoulder injury, with the severity of both unknown at this point.

The roster will be cut to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET Tuesday. Here is a projection:

QUARTERBACK (3): Tom Brady, Blaine Gabbert, Kyle Trask
