The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed QB Baker Mayfield to a one-year contract worth up to $8.5 million, as per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Mayfield will now compete with Kyle Trask for the opportunity to replace Tom Brady as the QB. While Mayfield isn’t guaranteed the starting position, the fact that Tampa Bay went out and signed him, makes him the frontrunner.
The Cleveland Browns drafted Mayfield first overall in the 2018 NFL draft. He spent four years in Cleveland. The Browns traded him to the Carolina Panthers.
Mayfield lasted just six games in Carolina, before he was released. He ended the season as the Los Angeles Rams starting QB.
For his career, Mayfield has thrown for 16,288 yards and 102 touchdowns. He has added 660 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.
