Latest Baker Mayfield Update Puts Qb’s Future In His Own Hands

Baker Mayfield’s long-term destiny with the Cleveland Browns is in his own hands as the organization moves forward in 2022.

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

The answer is a resounding yes.

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

Everything hinges on Mayfield’s success in the upcoming season.

Baker Mayfield’s future with the Browns hangs in the balance until 2022.

Kevin Stefanski and GM Andrew Berry reaffirmed Mayfield as Cleveland’s starting quarterback during the NFL Combine.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of, the Browns are not considering other veteran quarterbacks. Jimmy Garoppolo’s rumored desire looks to be unfounded “because they don’t see him as a clear-cut upgrade.”

So Mayfield is the starter for the time being, but this is very much a show-me year because the player and the team have yet to agree on a contract extension.

Mayfield is expected to play the last year of his deal without any guarantees. He’ll re-sign with the Browns if he can show them that he’s worthy of being their starting quarterback in the future. Otherwise, the collaboration will come to a stop.

Mayfield is coming off shoulder surgery, so going all-in is a bit of a gamble. Despite this, he is said to be ahead of schedule in his recuperation and is hoping to create a greater impression once he is fully recovered.

Mayfield had a 6-8 record in 2021, completing 60.5 percent of his passes and passing 17 touchdowns against 13 interceptions. While he made significant progress in 2020, this past season felt like a step back.

The quarterback must demonstrate that he has the ability to return the Browns to the playoffs. They’ll be ready to move on without him if that doesn’t happen.
