    How much money is left ? Can the Bucs resign McLaughlin ? If yes, will there will any money left over to sign anyone else from other teams ?

  2. ModHairKen Says:

    Wirfs. The Kicker. Center. Guard. Edge. CB. RB.

    Licht is just rounding second.

  3. Ko Kiefer Says:

    Rusty –

    Yes, and yes. The baker contract has low cap value in first year, Bucs can clear up a lot of room with Vita Vea restructure, cutting/trading Gage,Dean orDavis, and extending Wirfs and Winfield

  4. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Wirfs is under contract

  5. Tye Says:

    Its a QB driven league and a great team with a bum at QB are unsuccessful so At least the Bucs lock up a decent one the a few years to by time to find a better replacement!

  6. Rod Munch Says:

    I’d say uneasy, but it’s not a bad deal – and the big thing is they can get out from it next year at a reasonable cost if Baker stinks.

    Basically it’s a middling contract for a middling QB, which is fair enough.

  7. WillieG Says:

    LVD and McLaughlin need to be signed otherwise my “Amazing” vote will be downgraded.

  8. Boss Says:

    mediocrity is locked up for several years with bake and co…..

    will waste the potential of players like wirfs and winfield

    ah well, we got a SB. only have to wait another 20 years.

  9. MadMax Says:

    Lets Bake boys, lets FN GO!

    btw, FU Baker haters….sorry had to do it, lol

  10. Dave Pear Says:

    Booss, why don’t you just get your wife another t-shirt.

    Let’s see, you or Jason Licht know better? Hmmm.

  11. MadMax Says:

    How many times was I saying 3 years 33.333

    And I talked them into bringing him here for 4 to 6, its in the archives…

    whew buddy, wow

  12. Dave Pear Says:

    Maybe ATLfan and Booss can wear the same t-shirt and snuggle by the TV watching clips of their favorite QB while fondling each other.

  13. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Very good. We needed Wake n Bake and he needed us. Deal was fair for both sides.

  14. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Yeah Rod, we know you wanna bring back Jay Miss. You still have that poster of Jay Miss on your wall in Momma’s trailer.

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper – Lots of people I’d take over Baker for that money, but it’s a done deal now. Hopefully it works out, we shall see.

  16. MadMax Says:

    Alright, back to business

    Cooper Dejean
    Jackson Powers
    Jeremiah Trotter jr
    Audric Estime

    …and some trades will def have to happen with this scenario

  17. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Rod, who would you take over Baker that isn’t currently making that kind of money? Please expound.

    I’ll answer your question – but only because you asked. I’m fine with Baker on this deal, I hope he does well.

    But who’d I take?

    Wilson +$29m
    Minshew +$24m
    Winston +$24m
    Fields +$24m
    Trask +$30m

    That’s off the top of my head, I’m sure there is more. Also I’d have kicked the tire on Cousins just to see what he wants, but likely he’d be too expensive.

    Again, only because you asked. This deal is within the limits of what I thought Baker would get ($27m-30m) and a $20m buyout next year isn’t the end of the world, and it likely wouldn’t matter about the cap hit since if Baker bombs, the team is getting blown up anyways. I honestly hope that doesn’t happen – hopefully Baker can improve and the Bucs are even better – and I don’t think the NFC South is going to be as bad next year so they will have to improve.

  19. Olboy Says:

    I’m good. Great options to choose from too. Hahaha

  20. Gipper Says:

    Well, we can tell from the poll who the roughly 8% less than GOOD are. Let’s start with Captain Rod Munch, OneillBuc, MarineBuc, whatever david is calling himself this week, and the rest of the Hate Brigade.
    Sad news, boys, Baker with $50Mill guaranteed isn’t going anywhere soon. You may as well get on board because if Licht can get the O line and tight end situation fixed, Bucs will play in NFC Championship soon.

  21. MadMax Says:

    All you talking heads who hate on him…get it on and get it out of your system just like the girls you are at that time of the month….mydol and tampax are your friends at this point….the rest of us arent

  22. Ricki Says:

    I understand good and very good, but amazing for Baker? Really?

  23. Beeej Says:

    15 of the 20 “sick” votes were all of David’s email addresses

  24. OHBucFan Says:

    All going to plan.

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    Gipper – Being in the majority isn’t really the accomplishment you think it is. The majority of people in the world wipe with their hand.

    Speaking of which, I was just answering the question.

    Hopefully Baker will play out his deal for all three years, because that means the Bucs are winning and he’s playing well. We shall see.

  26. Oneilbuc Says:

    Gipper. I’m sorry if I don’t settle for mediocrey like you do but at the same time I will always root for my bucs regardless who the quarterback is. If Baker plays good then I will say he’s playing good. But if he’s bad I’m going to say he was bad it ain’t that deep with me . I don’t get caught up in these players like a lot of people do these days. I’m a bucs fan and I want championships not just playoffs appearances. And by the way that 6 game losing streak the bucs went on Baker only completed 48% of his passes I haven’t forgotten about that like most people have. And by the way 2 years ain’t a long term deal bro. And for me we have to at least get to the NFC championship or it’s a bust.

  27. Larrd Says:

    Being in a 6-5 minority is meaningless. Once it gets to 9-1 you’ve got to do some soul searching.

  28. Gipper Says:


    Starting to understand your problem. It is either reading, math, comprehension or all of the above. I looked at the individual game logs for 2023 and in two of those games Baker did complete roughly 48% of his passes but they were BOTH TAMPA WINS. In the course of a season a QB has bad games, good games and average games. For Baker 2023 the result of all those was around 65% completion rate. For the playoff games which are not included his results were better. Why don’t you just give it a rest? You are way to invested in proving a point. It is OK to say ” I was wrong.” For that matter you don’t need to say anything. Just enjoy the team in 2024.

  29. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Not to toot my horn but I kept saying 3 years like $100M+ with $50M+ guaranteed lol. I’m a finance/numbers guy and that just seemed to make the most sense.
