Former Florida Gators QB Kyle Trask signed his first NFL contract Tuesday, a four-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth more than $5.5 million. 

The Bucs drafted Trask just over a month ago, snagging him near the end of the second round with the 64th overall pick. He played three years at Florida, two as a starter, and his 43 touchdowns in 2020 were the most in the nation. He was also one of four finalists for last year's Heisman Trophy, which was won by DeVonta Smith.

Tuesday was a big day for Trask. He also got to take the field with Tom Brady, the man he'll be backing up, for the first time.

While Trask and Brady are practicing together for the first time, Trask has been at work for over a week, earning early praise from head coach Bruce Arians.

There are already two more Brady backups on the roster: Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin, who both re-signed with the Bucs this spring. That's a lot of backups, so at least one of them probably won't be sticking around for the duration of training camp.
