During his initial five seasons in the NFL, Baker Mayfield exhibited flashes of potential greatness, yet consistently encountered obstacles hindering his progress.

However, this season marked a significant breakthrough as he consistently unleashed his full potential, ascending to the status of a bona fide star, meriting a coveted spot in the Pro Bowl.

Recognition for Mayfield’s talents has surged, with Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen praising his “sneaky big arm” and likening it to a “cannon” on FS1’s “Speak”.

Since entering the league as the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft, immense expectations accompanied Baker Mayfield’s journey. Drafted by the star-hungry Cleveland Browns, who endured the disappointments of previous highly-touted quarterbacks like Johnny Manziel, Mayfield was envisioned as the savior who would lead them to victory.

While he did secure Cleveland’s first playoff victory since the mid-1990s, he struggled to fully ignite the team’s success.

This season, as part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Mayfield showcased his potential by amassing 4,044 passing yards and 28 touchdowns, matching the lofty projections set on draft day.

Furthermore, he spearheaded the Buccaneers to a first-place finish in the NFC South and a commanding playoff triumph in the Wild Card round against the reigning NFC champions, the Philadelphia Eagles.

With Baker Mayfield approaching free agency, speculation abounds about his future. Many anticipate Tampa Bay to offer a lucrative deal to retain him for the foreseeable future.

Clearly, Josh Allen is a big fan of what Mayfield does on the field. And if the Bills’ superstar is all about him, the narrative may just change with another big year in 2024.
