Baker Mayfield, the quarterback of the Los Angeles Rams, is shaping up to be the successor of Tom Brady in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the next NFL season, according to various reports that have even been taken up by the United States professional football league itself.
Former No. 1 general pick Baker Mayfield has reached a one-year deal worth up to $8.5 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources. Mayfield is now in line to succeed Tom Brady,” NFL insider Adam Schefter said.
The 27-year-old Baker Mayfield finished his fifth NFL season with the Rams, with whom he finished last season with 2,163 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
The arrival of Baker Mayfield, in the absence of becoming official, took a stir for being the successor of the legendary Tom Brady, who announced his retirement on the first day of last February and will now be a commentator for the NFL with a contract that will even generate more earnings than he had as an active player.
