SJ - March 27, 2022

It was reported after the Browns courted Deshaun Watson, but were believed to be out of the running for him, that the team was going to move on from Baker Mayfield anyway.

There were reports that the Browns wanted an adult in the quarterback room.  Owner Jimmy Haslam addressed those reports.

From Akron Beacon Journal:

Asked if they tried to patch things up with Mayfield, Jimmy Haslam said, “Contrary to what is out there in the press, we think highly of Baker and did not get down on him. I know there is [an anonymous Browns] statement that we needed ‘an adult in the room,’ and Baker felt that came from ownership, but that is not true.

“Baker gave it everything he had while he was here. Nobody can question his effort this past year, and nobody can question the four years he gave to the city of Cleveland. We wish him nothing but the best of luck.”

I don't know if I trust anything a grown man named Jimmy has to say.  At some point you have to go with Jim or James or something.....
