After failed stints with the Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers, veteran quarterback Baker Mayfield was thought to be done as an NFL starter, but he was given an opportunity with the Los Angeles Rams to replace Matthew Stafford, who suffered a season-ending injury in 2022.

Fortunately for Mayfield, he played well in his short time with the Rams and drew the attention of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who were tasked with replacing retiring superstar Tom Brady.

Mayfield resurrected his career as a starter in Tampa Bay last season, convincingly leading the team to a division title and a playoff win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Even though the Buccaneers ultimately lost to the Detroit Lions, Tampa Bay’s season was considered to be a success, with Mayfield set to benefit more than anyone, as he could now demand a lucrative long-term contract for his efforts.

Although it seemed uncertain whether the Buccaneers would bring back Mayfield, that happened on Sunday, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reporting a new deal between the two sides worth $100 million.

Fans had plenty of reactions to the news about the Buccaneers committing to Mayfield for the next few years.

With Mayfield and star wide receiver Mike Evans back in the fold, Tampa Bay has a chance to make some noise in the NFC moving forward if the team can continue to build around these stars while staying healthy come playoff time.

It remains to be seen whether Mayfield’s first season in Tampa Bay was a fluke, but the team seems confident that it wasn’t and that success can continue for the Buccaneers,
