Thanks to Senior NFL Reporter Albert Breer we have the details to Mayfield’s deal.
“New Buccaneers QB Baker Mayfield’s 1-year, $4 million deal.
– $2 million roster bonus due this month.
– $2 million base (fully guaranteed).
– $4.5 million in playtime, playoff and stat incentives.”
Via Scott Smith of buccaneers.com,
“We’ve always, all of us in the front office and the coaches as well … we’ve seen a fiery competitor, very confident, smart, he’s got a very good arm,” said Licht of Mayfield. “He’s had a lot of success. He took Cleveland to the playoffs for the [second] time since ’94, when Coach [Bill] Belichick was coaching. That says something. We’re excited to add him to the fray and it’s going to be a great competition. It’s going to be, since I’ve been here, really the real first legit QB competition in training camp, which will be a lot of fun to watch. It’s going to make both of them better. I feel very confident about what [Offensive Coordinator] Dave [Canales] is going to do with the offense and with these quarterbacks. Very exciting.”
