The Tampa Bay Buccaneers has signed veteran quarterback Baker Mayfield to a three-year contract worth $100 million with $50 million guaranteed and a maximum value of $115 million.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter posted on X: Baker Mayfield’s deal with the Buccaneers: “2024: $30 million * 2025: $30 million, including $20 million guaranteed * 2026: $40 million. $5 million per year in incentives. $100 million total, with incentives a max value of $115 million.”  Mayfield told Schefter: “I wanted a chance to come back. I love coach [Todd] Bowles and the staff. I’m happy to be here and I want to win more in the postseason.”

Mayfield signed a one-year deal with the Buccaneers last offseason, and threw for 4,044 yards, 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and leading Tampa Bay to a 9-8 record and its third straight NFC South title. The Bucs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Wild Card Round before losing to the Detroit Lions in the Divisional Round.

Mayfield was the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2018, and set a then-rookie record with 27 passing touchdowns in his first year in the league. The Browns traded him to the Carolina Panthers prior to the 2022 campaign after acquiring Deshaun Watson, but led the team to a 1-5 record before requesting to be released in December 2022.
