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.

Mason Rudolph Continues To Receive Endorsements

Saturday, January 20, 8:47 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph is set to hit free agency heading into the 2024-25 campaign. However, several of Pittsburgh's prominent offensive options, specifically Diontae Johnson and George Pickens, seemingly want Rudolph to remain the team's starting signal-caller moving ahead. It's no secret Kenny Pickett has struggled since entering the league. But after Pickett didn't start late in the year, Rudolph played well enough to lead the Steelers to three consecutive wins and an AFC Wild Card appearance. At any rate, dynasty managers should keep the 28-year-old on the roster, considering there's a chance he'll remain in Pittsburgh. If Rudolph inks a new deal, Pickens and Johnson could also benefit, mainly since the duo played better after Pickett wasn't in the picture.
