“I think the Buccaneers are still in the game” Skip Bayless Claims Baker Mayfield Should Play at Tampa Bay in 2022 » FirstSportz

Skip Bayless on Baker Mayfield

If that Cleveland Browns continued to use the number 1 overall selection in 2018 Baker Mayfield, he should be one of the essential elements in the rejuvenation of the team. For a while it seemed like the election might actually work out, but now, with the blockbuster trade for Deshaun Watson, Mayfield is being shown the door.

In his 4 seasons in Cleveland, Baker Mayfield has started 59 games and has a 29-30 record. In those 4 seasons he never surpassed 4,000 yards or 30 touchdowns. He has also thrown 10+ interceptions in all but one season. The stats don’t paint a pretty picture, but in fairness it would be difficult to do since the Browns mostly want to run the ball.

However, more accurate and careful handling of the ball are major criticisms for Mayfield and have been fully brought to bear in the 2021 season. Many argue that the fact that he was injured played a role in his throwing movement. While that may be true to an extent, he was still fickle throughout his career.

The Browns were so willing to move away from Mayfield that they made a big move for Deshaun Watson, giving him a massive contract despite whatever troubles he is currently struggling with. Skip Bayless shared his thoughts on the situation.

On a segment of Fox Sports ‘Undisputed’Skip Bayless was quoted as saying “The first problem for Baker Mayfield is that everyone has already committed to other quarterback options. So this is a sticky situation for everyone involved, as it’s clear to the rest of the league that Cleveland is ready to cut bait. You must remove the huge personality that is Baker Mayfield. The rest of the league doesn’t want to give anything because they know they really want to get rid of him.”

Bayless further added “I think they’re going to have to cut Baker Mayfield. The best thing that can happen to him is to give him the freedom to choose his own destination. I still believe the Buccaneers are at play here. I don’t think Brady will remain a privateer for more than a year. They’ve already tried to come up with a plan B and I think the Buccaneers see Baker Mayfield as a viable long-term post-Brady option.”

What’s in store for Baker Mayfield is really hard to predict at this point. Perhaps he could be traded on draft day as teams don’t get the players they planned on with an uncommon injury during the regular season, forcing someone to make a trade. Regarding Tampa Bay, they need to keep an eye on it because there’s no guarantee Tom Brady will be a Buccaneer in 2023.
