  • Patriots Could Be In Play For Baker Mayfield

    Headshot for Baker Mayfield

    New England Patriots personnel leader Eliot Wolf and newly hired Alonzo Highsmith both played a pivotal role in drafting quarterback Baker Mayfield first overall five years ago when they were with the Cleveland Browns, which has ESPN's Jeremy Fowler connecting the dots and suggesting that the Patriots could look to sign Mayfield in free agency this offseason. The Patriots could sign a veteran signal-caller like Mayfield and then trade the third overall pick in this year's NFL draft for more draft capital, which is desperately needed. If the Minnesota Vikings end up re-signing quarterback Kirk Cousins (Achilles) to a long-term extension, Mayfield will be the top free-agent QB on the market after his career-best season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2023.

    Headshot for Baker Mayfield

    Right now it looks likely that impending free-agent quarterback Baker Mayfield will re-sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero mentions the Atlanta Falcons as a dark-horse candidate to get involved. Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said that re-signing Mayfield is an "extremely high priority" after the former first overall pick had the best season of his career in Tampa in 2023. New Falcons head coach Raheem Morris and offensive coordinator Zac Robinson know Mayfield from his short stint with the Rams at the end of 2022. Atlanta is seriously looking to upgrade the QB position this offseason over Desmond Ridder and Taylor Heinicke, and Mayfield would represent an upgrade. However, all signs are pointing to the Bucs and Mayfield running it back in 2024.

    Headshot for Baker Mayfield

    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.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the inside track to re-sign quarterback Baker Mayfield, who will become an unrestricted free agent in March. Mayfield had a career year in his first season in Tampa in 2023, and although he lost offensive coordinator Dave Canales, he'll now be working with Liam Coen, who he spent time with at the tail end of the 2022 season with the Los Angeles Rams. The Buccaneers could use the franchise tag on Mayfield in 2024 in order to keep him around. Mayfield has also gone on record saying he wants the team to bring back receiver Mike Evans, who will be a free agent as well when the new league year begins. Tampa has roughly $35 million available in salary cap space for the upcoming season. The best-case scenario for Mayfield and his fantasy value as a high-end QB2 will be a return to Tampa.

    When asked about his confidence level in quarterback Baker Mayfield returning to the team in 2024, new Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Liam Coen said, "higher than I probably need to be. I want him to be here. It's probably more want than know. He's obviously a reason that I'm here... I think he wants to be here." Mayfield had a career year in Tampa in 2023, setting career-highs in passing yards (4,044), completion percentage (64.3) and touchdown passes (28) while throwing 10 interceptions in 17 regular-season games. He even led the team to a wild-card playoff win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The 28-year-old will be a free agent this coming March, but there's mutual interest from both sides in a reunion. At best, Mayfield will be a high-end QB2 in fantasy next year if Mike Evans also re-signs in free agency.

    Headshot for Baker Mayfield

    Despite offensive coordinator Dave Canales' departure to become the head coach of the Carolina Panthers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still expected to pursue a contract extension as quarterback Baker Mayfield enters free agency in 2024, according to a league source. Mayfield is coming off his best season in the NFL, completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 4,044 yards, 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while leading the team to the playoffs in his first year in Tampa. Hiring Kentucky offensive coordinator Liam Coen as Canales' replacement could help with retaining Mayfield, as the two overlapped late in the 2022 season with the Rams. Either way, Mayfield is going to be playing for his seventh different offensive coordinator in his seventh NFL season in 2024.

  • Buccaneers Hire Liam Coen As Offensive Coordinator

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to hire Kentucky offensive coordinator Liam Coen as their new offensive coordinator, according to sources informed of the situation. Coen has gone back and forth between Kentucky and the Los Angeles Rams the last several seasons. He spent three years with Sean McVay in LA from 2018-20 before going to Kentucky in 2021. Coen then returned to LA as their offensive coordinator in 2022 before going back to Kentucky as the offensive coordinator and QBs coach in 2023. Coen and Bucs QB Baker Mayfield spent five games together with the Rams in 2022, so they have some familiarity. The Bucs' hiring of Coen should ensure that Mayfield, who will be a free agent in March, will return to Tampa to run it back in 2024 after leading the team to the postseason in his first year with the club in 2023.

The Buccaneers' offensive-coordinator position opened up this offseason when Dave Canales left the organization to become the Carolina Panthers' head coach. Van Pelt spent the last four years as Cleveland's offensive coordinator, but it was head coach Kevin Stefanski calling the plays. Van Pelt helped the Browns get back to the playoffs this year despite the team starting four different quarterbacks. His time in Cleveland overlapped with current Bucs QB Baker Mayfield's final seasons with the Browns, so it makes sense for Tampa to consider reuniting the two.

He'll now be tasked with working with first overall pick Bryce Young, who struggled tremendously in his first season in the NFL.

Despite that, this season was a success for Mayfield and the Bucs. Mayfield came into the season competing for the starting quarterback gig. Now, Mayfield is looking for a multi-year deal after throwing for over 4,000 passing yards with 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions during the regular season.

Because of the strong season, Mayfield could cash in with a big QB contract, but the Buccaneers also have the option to use the franchise tag on him.

The 28-year-old is one of the tougher QBs in the league and had the best season of his career in his first year in Tampa, but he's heading into this contest with two straight down performances.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said that quarterback Baker Mayfield's ribs are sore after the Week 17 loss to the division-rival New Orleans Saints but that he should be fine for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. Mayfield managed to throw for over 300 yards for the third time this year against the Saints and had two touchdown passes as well, but he also threw two interceptions to snap the team's recent run of strong performances. Most of his production didn't come until late in the second half when New Orleans already had the game in hand. The 28-year-old will hope to bounce back and win the NFC South with a win over Carolina this week. In Week 13 against the Panthers, Mayfield went 14-for-29 for 202 yards, one TD and one interception.

  • Baker Mayfield Holds QB2 Value

    Headshot for Baker Mayfield

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield has looked strong throughout most of this season. The veteran signal-caller has thrown multiple touchdowns in four of his last five games. However, Mayfield will head into a tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints defense in Week 17. A defensive unit that has allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Despite that, fantasy managers shouldn't be too worried about Mayfield heading into this game. Last time these two teams played, Mayfield tossed three touchdowns in the win. He should be a viable QB2 for this upcoming Week 17 matchup.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield continued his hot stretch of play during Sunday's game against Jacksonville Jaguars. Mayfield completed 26-of-35 passing attempts for 283 yards and two touchdowns in the win. It honestly could've been a bigger game for Mayfield, but the Bucs went into game management mode after going up 30-0 in the third quarter. Mayfield has exceeded expectations in Tampa Bay, so hopefully he can keep it going into next week's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. This will be a tougher game for Mayfield, but he remains on the QB2 radar for that one.

If not, though, the franchise tag also remains an option.
