Mayfield's debut for the Buccaneers went well, losing to the Steelers.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in no rush to declare a winner in the contest to land Tom Brady's old job.

Baker Mayfield was faster than Kyle Trask in Friday night's preseason-opening 27-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Coach Todd Bowles hasn't said that either candidate has taken the lead.

Mayfield shared better statistics in a quarter and a half against the Steelers.

The coaching staff monitors backups and youth players who hope to make the final roster.

Puckett showed speed, but the Bucs made only one regular start on defense.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said, "I thought we saw some things we wanted to see."
