Why the Buccaneers must keep QB Brett Smith

As Americans, we love a reclamation story. The idea of someone beating the odds to achieve fortune and glory excites our soul. It gives us hope that if a person can beat the long odds in front of them to achieve the unachievable, then maybe – just maybe – we can too.
