The Cleveland Browns reportedly may
hold on to Baker Mayfield for a while to see whether any quarterback
situations change around the NFL before training camp. 

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Friday on
SportsCenter that interested teams haven’t shown a willingness
to pay the QB’s $18.9 million salary for the 2022 season:

“I’m hearing the Browns are
prepared to hold on to him for a little bit. I checked with a source
who said, ‘What’s the rush here?’ Browns don’t have minicamp until
around mid-June, mandatory minicamp where Baker would have to show
up, or he could get fined and jeopardize some of that $18.8 million,
but right now he doesn’t need to be there. Nothing happened around
draft time; they couldn’t get a deal done with the Panthers, and no
other teams are eager to help the Browns right now. Because they gave
all of that money to Deshaun Watson, now they’re sitting on $19
million guaranteed to Baker Mayfield. Teams just aren’t eager to pay
really any of that and the Browns know that, so they’re sort of
holding on to him hoping that maybe a quarterback situation around the
league changes, maybe there’s an injury or somebody gets desperate.”
