What we do know right now is that Baker Mayfield is going to have a new team at some time, but we have no clue whether the Seattle Seahawks would be moving another big time player on their team.
ESPN’s Jake Trotter has a solution for both teams as he proposed a blockbuster deal that would ship Mayfield and a second-round pick to Seattle in exchange for Pro-Bowl wide receiver DK Metcalf, who the team is rumored to be actively shopping on the trade market.
“Seattle could be a decent landing spot for Mayfield, who would seemingly mesh with coach Pete Carroll and the type of offense he wants to run. The Seahawks might provide Mayfield with his best chance to start in 2022.
For the Browns, Metcalf and Amari Cooper would give them an imposing front-line receiving duo. They are looking for a No. 2 wideout, but landing Metcalf would give them two No. 1-caliber options for Watson.”
Metcalf’s name is only out there since the Seahawks appear to be headed for a full rebuild after trading perennial Pro-Bowl QB Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos this offseason.
Metcalf is scheduled to earn just under $4 million in 2022, but will likely press for a massive contract the following year, meaning Seattle may well lose him in free agency.
