Baker Mayfield didn’t show up for the start of the Cleveland Browns‘ offseason voluntary workout program, but he was not the topic of conversation today.
On Tuesday, a photo of Jacoby Brissett, Josh Dobbs and Deshaun Watson surfaced on social media. Browns fans may been excited to see their new QB, but other fans made sure to jump in the comment section and blast Watson.
The Browns’ biggest move this offseason came in March when they acquired Watson in a trade with the Houston Texans. If he doesn’t get suspended by the NFL, he’ll be the Browns’ Week 1 starter.
Watson began his first active day on the job after signing a five-year, $230 million deal earlier this offseason after being traded from Houston. The former Pro Bowl quarterback is tasked with leading the Browns back to the playoffs after the franchise finished with a disappointing 8-9 record in 2021.
Cleveland is hoping to revisit the success it had in 2020, when it won its first playoff game in 26 years.
Watson isn’t just expected to get them into the playoffs, but also play deep enough to one day possibly play for a Super Bowl.
