Earlier this week, Baker Mayfield made his first public comments since the Cleveland Browns moved on from him by trading for QB Deshaun Watson. Joining the YNK podcast, Mayfield named the Seattle Seahawks as his “most likely option” heading into the 2022 season.
“Oh man, if this would’ve been about a week and a half ago, I would’ve said Indianapolis. Um … Seattle? I mean it’d probably be the most likely option. But even then, I have no idea.”
Not everybody agrees with his opinion. NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport has another location in mind for the young QB.
“I haven’t gotten any sense at all that the Seahawks are that interested,” he said during a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show. “… “To me, the Carolina Panthers seem to be the most likely spot for Baker Mayfield… The Buccaneers would make some sense to me as well.”
Regardless of where he ends up, Mayfield said he will leave Cleveland thankful for the four years he spent as the city’s QB.
“I really, truly, honestly have no regrets of my time in Cleveland of what I tried to give to that place,” he said. “And true Clevelanders and true Browns fans know that. And that’s why I can walk away from the whole situation feeling like: I did it.”
The former No. 1 overall pick fought through a torn labrum, separated shoulder, sore foot, and knee contusion, and only missed three games last year.
Mayfield threw for the least amount of yards (3,010) and touchdowns (17) in his career, and the second-worst completion percentage (60.5).
