The Tampa Bay Buccaneers kick off the preseason schedule Friday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
New quarterback Baker Mayfield might start the game. Mayfield and Kyle Trask were listed as co-starters on the depth chart released by the team this week.
It would be surprising if Mayfield didn’t play given the scarcity of preseason reps available and the need for Mayfield to develop a feel for the new offense and his new teammates in live tackling situations.
Is it a sign of a truly competitive quarterback battle or a coaching tactic being employed by Todd Bowles? We’ll learn more on Friday.
