Baker Mayfield’s latest update puts the future of QB in his own hands

The Cleveland Browns progress into 2022 with Baker Mayfield with his long-term future in his own hands with the team.

Will Baker Mayfield be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns in 2022?

The answer is clearly a yes.

Will Baker Mayfield be the Browns’ starting quarterback in 2023?

It all depends on Mayfield and his performance next season.

During the NFL Combine, Kevin Stefanski and GM Andrew Berry confirmed Mayfield as the starting quarterback for Cleveland.

The Browns don’t look to other veteran quarterbacks, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. The alleged interest in Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be false “because they don’t see him as a definite upgrade.”

So Mayfield is the guy for now, but this is a show-me year as the player and team aren’t working on an extension.

The plan is for Mayfield to play the fifth of his contract with no future assurances. He will re-sign with the Browns if he proves to them he’s worthy of being their QB going forward. Otherwise the partnership ends.

Mayfield has had shoulder surgery, so the boom-or-bust approach is a bit of a risk. Still, he’s reportedly ahead of schedule in his recovery and wants to make a better impression once he’s healthy.

In 2021, Mayfield went 6-8 while completing 60.5 percent of his passes and throwing 17 touchdowns with 13 interceptions. While he took several steps forward in 2020, last season felt like a major step backwards.

The quarterback needs to show he can bring the Browns back to the playoffs. If not, they will be ready to move on without him.
