The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will enter the 2023 offseason with a hole at quarterback left by the retirement of Tom Brady after three seasons and one Super Bowl with the organization.
Brady retired «for good» in February, pitching a potential franchise rebuild just a few seasons after they won the Super Bowl over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Tampa Bay had Kyle Trask and Blaine Gabbert on the roster to back Brady, but 2023 could be different.

Tampa Bay is expected to target Baker Mayfield, the former No. 1 overall pick who played for the Carolina Panthers and Los Angeles Rams in 2022, in free agency, the NFL Network reported. Mayfield could reportedly be considered the «sensible pick» as the Buccaneers take a look at the veteran quarterback market.
Mayfield appeared in 12 games between the Panthers and Rams last season. He was acquired by the Panthers from the Cleveland Browns prior to the start of the 2022 season. He had 2,163 passing yards, 10 touchdown passes, and eight interceptions during the year.
