Baker Reagan Mayfield is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). Following a stint with Texas Tech University, Mayfield played college football at the University of Oklahoma, where he won the Heisman Trophy as a senior in 2017, becoming the first walk-on player to win the award. He was selected first overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Mayfield set the NFL rookie quarterback record for passing touchdowns, along with ending a 19-game winless streak for the Browns in his debut. His most successful season was in 2020, when he led the Browns to their first playoff appearance since 2002 and first playoff victory since 1994.
Due to inconsistent play the following season and conflict with Browns management, Mayfield was traded to the Carolina Panthers in 2022. Following further inconsistent play and injuries, he was released by the Panthers near the end of the season and played the rest of the year with the Los Angeles Rams. Mayfield joined the Buccaneers ahead of the 2023 season.
