The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Have   signed  Baker Mayfield With New  contract $240 m…

After an outstanding 2023 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, quarterback Baker Mayfield is anticipated to get a large, long-term deal as the NFL free agency period approaches in less than two weeks.

After agreeing to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Bucs in March 2023, Mayfield, 28, completed 4,044 yards and 28 touchdown throws this season, both career highs. Incentives linked to his performance were $2.85 million, which he received for his on-field achievements with the Bucs.

Following his trade from the Browns to Carolina in July 2022, Mayfield spent the 2022 NFL season bouncing between the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers, throwing for a career-low 10 touchdowns and 2,163 passing yards before setting career highs with the Bucs in 2023.

The former Heisman Trophy winner is anticipated to make a big splash during free agency following a successful 2023 campaign with the Bucs, in which he was nominated for AP Comeback Player of the Year (Browns quarterback Joe Flacco won the honor.

Spotrac, an online sports database for club and player contracts, projects Mayfield will sign a four-year, $120 million contract to stay with the Bucs. That contract contains a $53 million signing guarantee and has an average yearly value of $30 million.

One of the most entertaining narratives of the last few seasons has been Baker’s return, which culminated in a playoff victory with the Bucs this past season. At the last minute, Tampa Bay is attempting to keep Baker off the open market, according to Michael Ginnitti, managing editor of Spotrac. “We’ve projected a contract that uses a double bonus structure to keep cap hits insanely low over the next two seasons, essentially playing like a cap-adjusted version of Geno Smith’s deal in Seattle.”

After playing for the Browns, Panthers, Rams, and Bucs in his first six NFL seasons, Mayfield has earned more over $55 million in career earnings. However, in order to find out what happened to the $12 million that the pair put with those companies but failed to account for, Mayfield and his wife Emily filed a case against the investment firms owned by his family in September 2023.

According to’s Gregg Rosenthal, Mayfield is presently the third-best free agency quarterback and the 31st-ranked player available this offseason. He is just slightly behind former Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who is ranked No. 2 among quarterbacks and No. 30 overall.
