Baker Mayfield ‘ready to move on’ from Cleveland
At a youth football camp in Oklahoma, Baker Mayfield was asked if he could ever play for the Browns again. Although he’s still signed to the team, both sides agreed that he will be traded after the team signed Deshaun Watson to a five-year contract worth a guaranteed $230 million in March.
Watson is being investigated by the NFL for breaking the league’s personal conduct policy. As a result, he will likely face a significant suspension. The quarterback has settled 20 of the 24 civil suits filed by massage therapists. Each woman detailed graphic accounts of sexual harassment and sexual assault that occurred during massage therapy sessions.
“It think that it’s been pretty obvious the mutual decision on both sides is to move on,” Baker Mayfield said. “I’m thankful for my four years in Cleveland.”

When asked if he would return if the Browns “didn’t have a quarterback for the next year,” Mayfield’s answer had a stipulation.
“No, I think for that to happen there would have to be some reaching out but we’re ready to move on I think on both sides,” Mayfield said.
