The last several weeks have been wild as far as the NFL offseason is concerned.
It seems as if the entire league has been shaken up, and many teams have a renewed sense of hope after making some major personnel upgrades.
Well, this one quarterback is wondering where he will end up next after being replaced.
Of all of the rearrangements we have seen this offseason, perhaps one of the biggest and most shocking signings was that of the Cleveland Browns.
For as long as they have been a part of the National Football League, the Cleveland Browns have struggled to put a championship season together.
In fact, they are one of just a few teams who have never even BEEN to a Super Bowl.
Who can forget when they did not even exist for a couple of years in the 1990s because their own management gave up on them?
But in recent times, the quarterback position has been their Achilles heel.
From 1999 to 2018, the Cleveland Browns had 28 different starting quarterbacks.
For the longest time, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Big Ben Roethlisberger had the most wins of any quarterback in Browns’ stadium.
Talk about owning your opponents at home . . .
No quarterback seemed to have what it took to get a halfway decent season together, that is until they drafted Baker Mayfield from the University of Oklahoma.
Almost overnight, Cleveland went from the laughing stock of professional football to legitimate playoff contenders.
For a moment, at least . . .
Despite having a rough season in 2019, Baker led his team to the best record the Browns have had in decades, 11-5, and took them all the way to the AFC divisional round where they were narrowly defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs.
But last season, everything turned sour.
Baker’s passing options all fled the team (most notably Odell Beckham Jr.) and Baker had a bad year to say the very least.
To put it mildly, the Browns were not willing to wait around for Baker to improve.
And Baker showed he had given up on his team when he penned a bizarre breakup letter with the city before the Browns had even made a move.
As a result, the Browns have signed former Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson to a massive 5-year, $230 million contract.
This left Baker Mayfield replaced and ready to move on.
One destination that has a job opening, and that would make sense for Mayfield would be with the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks longtime starter Russell Wilson has found a new home in Denver, meaning Mayfield would fit right in.
And make no mistake, the Seahawks are rich with receiving talent.
DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett alone are two of the best in the game.
And Pete Carroll is one hell of a head coach.
One that would effectively utilize Mayfield’s talents and make him an instant star in Seattle.
Mayfield’s future remains uncertain, but a future in Seattle could make a hell of a lot of sense.
