Baker sitting out Cleveland OTA’s


Recommended Posts

pretty predictable.  Not a huge Baker fan but whatelse is he really suppose to do.  They replaced him.   No point risking injury or wasting your time w/ Clev at this point.

Good. I'm not a fan and don't want him here, but Cleveland is being dumb with him and really messing him up. They won't cut him lose because 1) they owe him too much money and 2) they don't know if the guy the tossed him to the side for is even going to be able to play so they are hoping that if Watson won't play that Baker will step up. If I'm Baker, I'm telling them to f*ck off. Cut me or whatever, just get me the f*ck out of here.

The longer he stays there, the less of a chance he's going to have to make an impact somewhere else. For him to have a chance at a starting job, he's going to have to prove himself in OTAs and training camp. He's got to have time to learn and then show what he can do. If he's stuck waiting in the wings in Cleveland, he'll never get that chance or at least a fair opportunity. And let's face it, Cleveland is a sucky place to get stuck.

I wonder if part of their reluctancy is they are just afraid to cut him.....and the Steelers pick him up.  And then Baker wrecks them in 2022 minus Watson.  That's some short term hard egg on your face.

Breer did stay this...

I don’t think the Browns are holding on to Baker Mayfield as a Deshaun Watson suspension insurance policy. And I think how they’ve operated is proof. My understanding is Cleveland’s already offered to take on a good chunk of his $18.858 million in guaranteed money for this fall to facilitate a trade. And a trade may have already happened if they were willing to take on more. Which is where this really does come down to value, plain and simple.

LOL I bet he was

His wife posted a pic on social media that apparently showed a well known Washington state landmark in the background.

Guess another clue will come if his next commercial shows him in a different stadium.

I would want at least 2 2nd round picks to take him then we could just cut him after the trade. 

Exactly. It's time we do the fleecing.
