Bucs and Baker Mayfield agree on one-year deal
Will compete with Kyle Trask for starting QB job

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The #Bucs are finalizing a deal with former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, per sources. Mayfield finished his fifth NFL season strong after landing with the #Rams. Now he gets a chance to take over for Tom Brady in Tampa, and is still only 27. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mayfield is singing on a one-year, $8.5 million deal which indicates he'll be competing with Kyle Trask for the starting QB job in 2023. He's made numerous stops over the last year including CLE, CAR, LAR and now TB. The Bucs are in rebuilding mold but do have their starting wide receivers back: Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Russell Gage. We're looking at mid-range QB2 value at the high end for the eventual starting Bucs quarterback.
