Baker Mayfield to replace Tom Brady?
A new era will begin for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2023 after quarterback Tom Brady decides to retire 'for good'.
On Sunday, the NFL Network reported that the “Bucs” would like to hire Baker Mayfield when the free agent market opens in the NFL.
Goodell circuit rosters will be able to start negotiations with footballers who will benefit from their autonomy this Monday. The market will open two days later.
Mayfield has been through highs, but mostly lows since being selected with the very first overall pick of the 2018 draft. After four seasons with the Cleveland Browns [2018 to 2021], he was traded to the Carolina before the start of the 2022 campaign.
He played seven games with this formation, before seeing his name put on waivers. The Los Angeles Rams claimed him and Mayfield was behind center for that club for five games. In 12 total games last year, including 10 as a starter, he completed 60% of his passes for 2,163 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 27-year-old athlete also had eight interceptions.
To return to the Buccaneers, the Florida team had relied on Brady's services since the 2020 season. In three campaigns with the legendary pivot behind their center, the “Bucs” have always made the playoffs and won Super Bowl LV.
As of this writing, the Tampa Bay organization has only one quarterback under contract. This is Kyle Trask. The latter was drafted in the second round (64th overall) of the 2021 auction and has only made one appearance on the field since.

Another player from the Rams' 2022 edition caught the eye on Sunday, as the California team reportedly traded cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Miami Dolphins.
That's what NFL Network pundit Ian Rapoport has learned.
In return for the 28-year-old, the Rams would have earned a third-round pick (77th overall) in 2023 and tight end Hunter Long.
The trade is expected to be finalized on Wednesday, day one of the 2023 NFL season. This transaction would be part of the reconstruction process that has begun with the Rams, who have already released linebackers Bobby Wagner and Leonard Floyd. They would also have allowed representatives of wide receiver Allen Robinson permission to find a new destination for the footballer.
Ramsey has been playing in the NFL since the 2016 campaign, he who was chosen in the first round (fifth in total) of that year's draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then, he has been invited to the Pro Bowl game six times.
Last year, the Florida State University product had 88 tackles, four interceptions and forced two fumbles in 17 games .
