Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Dave Canales said Wednesday that Trask and fellow signal-caller Baker Mayfield are expected to battle for the starting quarterback job, with the competition potentially extending into the final preseason contest, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Asked about whether naming a starter at this point in the offseason is preferable, Canales said that he would much rather see Trask get ample opportunity to prove himself, something which wasn't afforded to him during his first two seasons while working behind Tom Brady and hand-picked veteran backup Blaine Gabbert. With both players off the roster and Mayfield not having come close to living up to his status as the 2018 top overall pick to this point in his career, Trask -- who only has nine career pass attempts to Mayfield's 2,259 -- should have a legitimate chance to make his case.
