Baker Mayfield

The Cleveland Browns send many mixed messages across the league. The team has retained its former NFL draft first pick, Baker Mayfield, while acquiring Deshaun Watson in a $200 million deal. More surprisingly, Watson is not guaranteed to play as the league has not yet fully cleared him for the return. Given these events, Baker Mayfield’s future in the league as a starter is very uncertain.

Mayfield has stated publicly that he wants to be traded, but the team refuses to release him as they want to preserve his full trade value. However, there is another possibility. The Cleveland Browns are sticking with Baker Mayfield, believing he’s a solid back-up if Watson is ineligible, the team would want Baker to start again. It’s highly doubtful that Mayfield would give in, especially given this current reports.

A recent story surfaced on ESPN seriously accused the Cleveland Browns organization of betraying the quarterback when he struggled in the team’s Week 17 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.Mayfield and those close to him believe they left him in the game during week 17 in Pittsburgh during prime time to make it easier to switch to Deshaun Watson or someone else. I don’t know how you get back to that.” said Florence.

It’s true that it’s difficult to recover from an incident like this when your team intentionally makes you look bad, and you lose confidence in the organization and the coaches that you as a player have. “If he (Baker) really believes that, and if the Browns are like, ‘We might need this guy all year, we don’t know, we might need him,’ you better kiss his butt to get him back on board.” go ahead with the idea that there could be a mutual benefit here.”

The Browns and Mayfield must end up understanding that they both need each other as currently not a single NFL team has traded for Mayfield, Carolina has expressed interest in him but that trade was dead within hours as the Browns were asking too much. Additionally, there are many teams like the Seahawks that don’t have a solid starting QB and are probably just watching the situation in Cleveland to see how it plays out. They want to pick up Baker for loose change when he’s either released or when his trade value continues to drop. According to Florio, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider are “sit back and wait so they can maybe steal Baker Mayfield if they even want him, there’s nothing to suggest they want him at all but that might be part of the poker face they’re trying to project. Meanwhile they also love Geno Smith, people think Drew Lock will be the quarterback but he has to beat Geno. Pete has said multiple times that Geno is in the lead, Geno knows offense, and Geno played well last season when Russell was injured.

The Cleveland Browns weren’t that attractive for Deshaun Watson to go as a target, but when they guaranteed him all the money, the QB had to say yes as it was one of the best deals he could get given the circumstances. All of this leaves Baker Mayfield’s future in the balance as nothing is certain for the QB, he can’t leave but he doesn’t want to stay either.
