A new report from ESPN shined a light on the situation, and claimed the “final straw” was when ESPN employee Chris Mortensen claimed the team wanted “an adult” at quarterback.

The amount of drama surrounding Mayfield and the Browns is nothing short of shocking. As a guy who isn’t a fan of Mayfield, I certainly find it entertaining, but that doesn’t mean it’s still not surprising.
The guy won the Heisman at Oklahoma, and now, the team can’t seem to give him away at any price. How did things go so wrong?

Generally speaking, a quarterback who was a high pick will get a lot of opportunities, especially if they can be acquired at a low price.
Despite being a former first overall pick, nobody is interested in Mayfield. That’s a very embarrassing look, and the fact the relationship with the Browns reportedly collapsed over a single comment isn’t a good look.
The Cleveland Browns can’t seem to give away Baker Mayfield for even a broken washing machine.
