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.

Bucs To Sign John Wolford To Active Roster

Tuesday, October 31, 12:02 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will sign quarterback John Wolford from their practice squad to the active roster on Tuesday. The move comes after the Los Angeles Rams tried to pluck Wolford off Tampa's practice squad on Monday because of a right-thumb injury that quarterback Matthew Stafford suffered in the Week 8 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The Minnesota Vikings might also be interested after just losing Kirk Cousins for the season due to a torn Achilles. Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell has experience with Wolford from their time together with the Rams. Wolford's four regular-season start in his career came with the Rams and he spent the last three years with the team. The 28-year-old signal-caller will continue to back up Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask in Tampa.
