Buccaneers, Baker Mayfield Begin Extension Talks

Friday, February 23, 2:05 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and impending free-agent quarterback Baker Mayfield have started "preliminary talks about a new contract" this offseason. General manager Jason Licht is expected to meet with Mayfield's representation during the NFL scouting combine next week. After the 28-year-old Mayfield had a career season in his first year in Tampa in 2023, it's expected that there is mutual interest in a reunion for 2024 and beyond. Mayfield had a career-high 4,044 passing yards, 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and even led the Bucs to a wild-card playoff victory over the Eagles. The former No. 1 overall pick won't have offensive coordinator Dave Canales working with him in 2024, though, and there's a possibility he'll also lose top wideout Mike Evans in free agency. Mayfield's fantasy appeal as a solid QB2 would take a big hit if he doesn't have Evans to rely on.

Easton Stick Throws 47 Times In Week 18 Loss

Sunday, January 7, 11:59 PM

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Easton Stick had another struggle game in a Week 18 matchup against an all-backups version of the Kansas City Chiefs. Stick threw the ball 47 times, completing 28 passes for 258 empty yards. He added 77 yards on the ground on 13 carries and lost a fumble along the way. It was yet another game without a passing touchdown for Stick, who ends the season with three total passing touchdowns, all of which came in the same Week 14 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Chargers will have starter Justin Herbert back for Week 1 next season, but the backup quarterback position is certainly something they'll need to address sooner than later.
