KEY POINTS

  • A Baker Mayfield jersey pops up on the website of the Seahawks' official online store
  • The leak raises speculations about his move to Seattle
  • Questions are expected to be answered as the Browns host their training camp in July

So far, Baker Mayfield remains an official member of the Cleveland Browns.

However, most are aware that the 27-year-old play-caller has aired his wish to be traded to another team due to the arrival of Deshaun Watson.

Among the teams that would make sense for Mayfield are the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers as both teams need a tested quarterback.

There has been little progress on the future of the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner, but a recent leak spotted over on the official online shop of the Seahawks could further add fuel to the fire.

In a Twitter post, a jersey with the No. 6 was spotted in the Seahawks fan shop.

In a way, pundits are now speculating that this could be a sign of things to come.

If this would be taken seriously, this could mean something, and talks between the Browns and the Seahawks may be gaining ground.

However, there are underlying things to consider–one of them is the status of Watson.

As mentioned in a previous post, there are murmurs that the NFL is pushing for an indefinite suspension on the three-time Pro Bowler.

The suspension could be no shorter than one season, the Wall Street Journal reported.

If so, this would place the Browns in a spot. With Watson unable to play, they may be left with no recourse but to play Mayfield for the time being.

But the problem here is that Mayfield is sorely unhappy. Hence, the next couple of weeks will be rocky for Cleveland as training camp nears.

The Browns open their training camp on July 22 for rookies, while veterans are scheduled on July 26--a point where the franchise's followers may or may not see Mayfield around.
