the Cleveland Browns had a disastrous 2021 season and one man who had back-to-back particularly terrible outings was Baker Mayfield. Baker was expected to lead his side to victory, but throughout the season he failed to find his rhythm and was caught off guard even by mediocre defences.

As a result, he was mercilessly trolled and speculation arose that the Browns might want to release him. The Browns recently signed Deshaun Watson and are ready to trade with Mayfield in the near future.

“We’ll be adding an experienced QB to the team”: Jason Licht on Baker Mayfield

It may not be entirely clear where Baker will go, but many suggest he could end up with the mighty Bucs. In comment, Tampa Bay General Manager Jason Licht had a few things to say about SiriusXM’s “Mad Dog Sports Radio.”

I don’t want to talk about a player who’s currently on another team’s roster, but we can always add an experienced quarterback‘ said Licht, hinting that the rumors may actually turn out to be true. “We’ll have to see how things go from here‘ added Light.

In fact, Blaine Gabbert has been used as Brady’s back-up for two seasons, and they also have second-year QB Kyle Trask as another option. It’s possible Brady will retire after the 2022 season is over. To make sure the team doesn’t suddenly fall off a cliff, they could actually get Mayfield to just acclimate him to the team culture.

Licht also spoke a lot about Kyle Trask during the show. “Kyle is someone we’ve been really excited for and his progress over the past year as a backup quarterback just learning behind Tom, learning behind Blaine. We’re really excited about him and I think he’s just going to keep evolving,” he added.

It will be interesting to see if the Bucs finally decide to go after Mayfield.
