After having the benefit of knowing that Tom Brady has been cemented at the starting quarterback position in recent seasons, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback room is sure to look different in 2023.
Head coach Todd Bowles told reporters there will be open competition between Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask for the starting quarterback role. However, organized team activities may not have clarified who will ultimately be under center in Week 1.
A viral video posted to Twitter showed a streak of rather disappointing throws from the quarterbacks during practice.

Bowles confirmed that Mayfield and Trask shared reps with the first team at the start of the offseason.
BAKER MAYFIELD DOESN’T REALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT SKEPTICS THINK OF BUCS’ 2023 CHANCES
In the video shared by a Tampa Bay-based sportswriter, the two quarterbacks were seen making cringe-worthy throws as they split the reps.
“Checking Bucs QB contest between Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask,” Burger wrote in a tweet with video of the pitching session attached.
Both quarterbacks could certainly have had a much better day throwing the ball during other periods of practice.
However, during the portion of practice that was open to the media, neither player presented their best shots.
A bad day at the office is certainly not indicative of how the season will go for the Bucs, but it certainly wasn’t an encouraging moment for Tampa Bay fans.
The good news is that it’s May, not September, so the team still has time to sort out their quarterback situation before the NFL season starts.
Some fans took to Twitter to poke fun at Mayfield and Trask’s performances.
“Baker seems to be in regular season form,” one Twitter user wrote with a pair of laughing emojis.

Another fan joked, “Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are about to ask for trades.”
