Baker Mayfield is uncertain about where he will be playing next season. But one thing he is certain about is, that he wants out of Cleveland.
Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns have had a rough offseason. As far as their relationship goes, it does not seem like there will be any reconciliation between the two. The Browns traded for Deshaun Watson and, as a result, Mayfield has made it clear he no longer wants to be a part of the Browns organization.
Mayfield was a guest on the Ya Neva Know Podcast and he was asked where he thinks he will play next. His answer: the Seattle Seahawks.
Could the Seattle Seahawks be Baker Mayfield’s next chapter?
Mayfield is guaranteed $18.858 million for the 2022 season and a lot of teams do not want to take on that financial responsibility, thus eliminating several possible suitors.
However, according to Yahoo Sports insider Charles Robinson, some teams are willing to wait and see if the Browns will cut Mayfield before picking up the quarterback.
The Seattle Seahawks could be one of those teams waiting. They already have quarterbacks Drew Lock and Jacob Eason signed and they plan to re-sign Geno Smith. Head coach Pete Carrol, also stated that the Seahawks would acquire a fourth quarterback, per the Seattle Times.
Acquiring Mayfield could prove to be useful. He brings more regular-season and playoff experience on the field than other possible options and this could be beneficial for the Seahawks.
