The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have decided to pick up the 5th-year option of Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Tristan Wirfs, according to Pewter Report.

This option will earn Wirfs a staggering $18.24 million in 2024, a testament to his incredible talent and dedication to the game. Since being drafted in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Wirfs has started an impressive 46 games for the Buccaneers, mostly protecting the right side of GOAT quarterback Tom Brady.

But with the recent release of veteran left tackle Donovan Smith, there is speculation that Wirfs will make the move to left tackle for the upcoming season. This is a position he has experience playing, having played both left and right tackle during his college career at the University of Iowa.

In just two short seasons, Wirfs has already made a significant impact in the NFL. He has earned two Pro Bowl selections and was named to two All-Pro teams. His performance on the field has been nothing short of exceptional, and he has been a key factor in the Buccaneers’ recent success.

The decision to pick up Wirfs’ option was an easy one for the Buccaneers, who recognize his immense talent and potential. They are confident that he will continue to be a dominant force on the offensive line for years to come.

This move is just the latest in a series of strategic decisions made by the Buccaneers in their quest for another division title. With Wirfs anchoring the offensive line, the Buccaneers are hoping to return to the playoffs in the upcoming season.

Fans of the Buccaneers can rest easy knowing that their team is in good hands with Wirfs and the rest of the talented roster.
