Mark Wahlberg is a damn prophet — the actor’s long-standing prediction that Baker Mayfield would be Tom Brady‘s successor actually came true on Wednesday … with the quarterback signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency.
Wahlberg spoke highly of the former first-overall pick with TMZ Sports on three separate occasions dating back to June 2018 … saying Bake was the guy to take over for TB12 when the 7-time Super Bowl champion decided to retire.
Of course, Mark’s initial prophecy wasn’t completely accurate — he was hoping Mayfield would take the reins in a New England Patriots uniform … but that was before Brady moved to the Buccaneers.
We’re not gonna focus on that minor detail — after all, who could have imagined back in 2018 Brady would ever wear another uniform?!
Mayfield — who’s become buddies with Wahlberg over the years — is joining the Bucs on a 1-year deal worth up to $8.5 million … and has a good shot at lining up under center for Tampa Bay when the season rolls around.
Better go get some lottery tickets, Mark!! Not like you need the money, though.
