This move shouldn’t surprise anyone, but it’s a clear indication that no matter what happens with Deshaun Watson, Mayfield probably isn’t in the picture moving forward.
With more and more allegations coming out about Watson, some have speculated the team might keep Mayfield around in the short term.

However, the fact he’s been excused from the team’s mandatory minicamp is as clear of a sign as you can get he’ll be gone as soon as the team can find a trading partner.
His time with the Browns is over. The only question now is how long it will take for a team to take him from the Browns. It could be awhile, but eventually, he’s going to get shipped out of town.
