Where will Baker Mayfield land this offseason? The former Heisman Trophy winner is still more likely to be traded, but with whom?
The NFL draft came and went and we still don’t know where the Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield will go after the trade. Will he be sold or will the team have to release him after two months of no concrete action on a possible contract?
Both sides seem very stubborn on his point. Mayfield said he was “disgraced” and did not want the Browns to abandon the idea of trading Mayfield and removing the current deal from their book.
I am still in camp believing that the Browns will not let him go but still have a deal where they will pay well while trading.
Who are the teams still in this situation? I have come up with five teams that are still playing. I will start with the least possible team and finish with the best fit.
No. 5 Landing Spot for Baker Mayfield: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Here is a team from the Buccaneers who currently have Tom Brady as their quarterback. Brady retired for a few months and then decided to return. So, if Mayfield came here, it would be a backup quarterback.
With Brady retiring in the next year or two, Mayfield could sit behind Brady and take over the Arch of Books at any moment.
Former Books head coach Bruce Arian had previously stated that he wanted to be the Browns’ head coach in public. He is now a senior football consultant for the Buccaneers. The Arians and the rest of the Buccaneers front office will have to consider a player like Mayfield as a possible backup for Tom Brady. The organization knows he will retire soon, and Mayfield is ready to take over.
