That’s it it’s that simple just a 5th-round pick for a solid quarterback who like himself the team just wanted him out. With Deshaun Watson as the unanimous starter pending the NFL’s conduct violations, the Browns had no intention of Baker Mayfield in the future despite in a short time the quarterback threw for 92 TDS to 56 interceptions. The Browns drafted Baker Mayfield first overall in the 2018 draft he sat on the bench for a few short weeks before taking over for an injured Tyrod Taylor. Leading the Browns to a 12-5 playoff record and a playoff appearance. Before that, the browns had not made a playoff appearance in 18 years. The Browns assassinated the Steelers on their home field advanced to Kansas City and despite a good fight couldn’t match the wrath of Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs at Arrowhead
This past season Baker Mayfield played every game despite that the Browns went 8-9 and missed the playoffs. Odell Beckham was shipped to the Rams and ended up leaving the team that missed the playoffs and then joining a team, having a semi-career renaissance, and kissing a ring under confetti.
The Browns heading into next season will have an elite upgrade in Deshaun Watson pending NFL suspension. In the event of a likely handful of games suspension. Jacoby Brissett will lead for the Browns and while it’s better than nothing we shouldn’t expect excessive fireworks at Paul Brown stadium.
In a locker room with pi walker and Sam Darnold most would expect Mayfield will best both of them out pretty easily. He’ll have DJ Moore and Robbie Anderson who had some comments towards Mayfield in the offseason, you can look those up later. Both wrs coming off of pretty exceptional seasons. The biggest question mark is the handoff, once regarded as the best dual-threat running back in the Nfl, Christian McCaffrey an elite running back was once the best back in the NFL, insert Derrick Henry. He ( McCaffrey) has only played 10 games in the last 2 seasons and never rushed for 100 yds last season. It’ll be interesting to see what baker can provide the Carolina fan base and the Nfl as a whole in a different uniform on a team with some weapons.
The Browns have already erased Mayfield’s name from his locker and Mayfield certainly took his things. The browns will cross their fingers for a slap on the wrist via the NFL to Deshaun Watson and if not will gamble on Brissett as the holdover. Which fan base gets the last laugh? Well, find out in week one as the Browns travel to Carolina to take on Garfield and the panthers on different sidelines.
