Even with Watson’s future in jeopardy, Mayfield must leave the Browns

The Cleveland Browns are heading into the 2022-23 season and looking like the same loverskilled dumpster fire that we have come to know over the years.

DeShaun Watson appears to be headed for at least a season ban, and the team has shown Baker Mayfield the exit before officially kicking him out of the building. Former Browns QB Robert Griffin III thinks the Browns will have to crawl back to Mayfield if Watson isn’t available this fall.

“I think the Browns should offer Baker the olive branch and ask him to stay if Deshaun Watson is suspended for a significant amount of time,” griffin said† “Baker has proven in this city that he can win a playoff game, take you to the playoffs and do all those things. Last year he played injured and was not very effective. The bottom line is that Baker Mayfield is better than Jacoby Brissett, that’s just the bottom line. And if you have to play with a guy for a whole season, your best option is to go back to Baker Mayfield and beg him to stay.”

What Griffin is suggesting sounds like a terrible idea everywhere. Cleveland revealed their true feelings about Baker months ago. The Browns claimed they wanted”an adultled the team, then went out and traded for DeShaun Watson. Cleveland traded for Watson with full knowledge of the 22 civil lawsuits so-called sexual abuse at the time.

After all that has happened this off-season, it would be hard to go back in the way RG3 was laid out. The Browns came out publicly and told the world they were divorcing Mayfield. Now they’re bringing in his replacement only to find out he’s probably on a long hiatus. And RG3 expects the franchise to crawl back to the man they just told he was no longer needed. Oh, that sounds like a great plan. NOT!

Mayfield has already given his thoughts on a possible reconciliation with the Browns. “No, I think for that to happen, there has to be some contact, but we’re ready to move forward, I think, on both sides,” Mayfield explained

You can’t blame Baker for feeling that way. Cleveland told him to go away. They have searched for trades and cannot find a scenario they like. But they refuse to release him and move on. It’s a difficult situation.

Mayfield would get at least moderate attention in the open market, but in the current circumstances we’ve only seen a few teams showing genuine interest. Seattle seahawks and Carolina Panthers. And neither organization is intrigued enough to trade valuable assets. They seem to be waiting for the Browns to collapse and cut him.

Anyway, I think it’s a terrible idea from Griffin. Even if the Browns reach out and Baker considers it, I think it’s still a disaster waiting to happen. Cleveland must move on and let Mayfield find a new team. Both sides are on debt, and it’s over. irreconcilable differences. Pick a reason, and it certainly applies to this situation.

Should the Browns come back and ask Baker to stay once Watson’s fate is sealed, he must tell them, thank you, but no thank you. He shouldn’t even consider going back. Normally I’m not that petty, but it will be very awkward to lead this team back when they were supposedly done with you. If I’m Mayfield, I’ll pass up the opportunity. He has bet on himself in the past, and he has succeeded. It’s time for Baker to regain that confidence and bet on himself again.
