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.

Jarrett Stidham Has Decent Game In Season Finale

Sunday, January 7, 11:33 PM

Denver Broncos quarterback Jarrett Stidham went 20-for-34 for 272 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the 27-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in the regular season finale on Sunday. He ran three times for two yards and was sacked five times for a loss of 34 yards. His lone touchdown was a 24-yard strike to Jerry Jeudy. With the Broncos benching Russell Wilson for the final two games for financial reasons, Stidham acquitted himself well, going 40-for-66 for 496 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while winning one game. The Broncos are expected to move on from Wilson in March, but Stidham will most likely begin training camp in the summer as a backup to whoever the Broncos choose to bring in to replace Wilson. At the very least, Stidham has proven in the last two games of the regular season the last two years with the Broncos and Raiders that he's a serviceable backup.
