KEY POINTS

  • Baker Mayfield feels disrespected by how the Cleveland Browns treated him
  • The arrival of Deshaun Watson practically kicked out Mayfield
  • Mayfield also reveals what he plans to do next

The Cleveland Browns and Baker Mayfield have fallen out with each other after the acquisition of Deshaun Watson, and he is making his feelings clear this time around.

Mayfield was a guest on the “Ya Never Know: You Know What I Mean?” podcast hosted by Mike, and the quarterback revealed the disrespect he felt from the Browns’ front office.

“The respect thing is all going to be a personal opinion. I feel disrespected, one-hundred percent, because I was told one thing and they completely (Cleveland Browns) did another. That's what I'm in the middle of right now,” Mayfield bluntly said.

The first hint that NFL fans got about Mayfield having an issue with the Browns’ front office was when he penned a heartfelt letter to the city of Cleveland and ending it with the words, “I can only control what I can, which is trusting in God’s plan throughout this process.”

Shortly after, the Browns announced the acquisition of Watson from the Houston Texans in a massive blockbuster trade that signaled the end of their relationship with Mayfield.

Legendary Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas then explained back in March how the 27-year-old quarterback may have been the one to necessitate the franchise’s move for Watson.

With Mayfield practically without a team, reports of the Buccaneers considering taking a flier on him to serve as a backup to the now-unretired Tom Brady then started circulating.

However. no deal has been brokered as of yet.

The 2017 Heisman Trophy winner acknowledged that his divorce with the Browns is definitely coming, but has no date as of yet.

“I'm just looking for stabilization right now, and I know what I need to know to be the best version of me and to lead an organization. I'm in a good place right now, where, like, I have no clue where I am going,” Mayfield revealed.

After spending fours seasons with the Browns, Mayfield has proven time and again that he can lead a team when given the right pieces around him as evidenced by his career-best season back in 2020.

The question now is who will try and pry him away from the Browns.
