Buccaneers’ GM on QB Competition, “They’re Both Very Excited To Get This Thing Going”


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have an open competition at the quarterback position between Kyle Trask and Baker Mayfield this offseason following Tom Brady’s retirement. While this isn’t new news, recently general manager Jason Licht appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio to talk about the quarterback competition.

“Baker’s been fantastic here getting adjusted to his teammates and the culture here. Everybody, our staff, everbody downstairs has been really, really impressed with how he’s handled himself so far. And then Kyle [Trask] is just the Steady Eddie. He hasn’t changed. He works very hard. He’s very smart. Nothing seems to rattle Kyle. And that goes all the way back to his high school days waiting for his opportunity and then thriving when it comes up. So this is going to be a really, really, interesting competition all the way through [training] camp. Because it truly is going to be a competition. And I know that they’re both very excited to get this thing going.”

The Buccaneers hope to get the 86.4 quarterback rating with a 63.6 percent completion rate from his four Rams’ starts Mayfield type play. While most of us would just like to see SOME play by Trask.

The Buccaneers’ are reportedly still in the market for a veteran quarterback, but that signing will most likely be for depth purposes. Mayfield and Trask are set to face off in this year’s Buccaneers’ training camp. Stay tuned.
