Baker Mayfield Says He Has No Regrets Of His Time In Cleveland

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

Baker Mayfield was on the ‘Ya Neva Know’ podcast recently and discussed things that happened at the end of his tenure with the Browns, and next steps.

“Yeah, the respect thing is all going to be a personal thing, but yeah, I feel disrespected. 100 percent,” Mayfield said on the YNK podcast.

“Because I was told one thing, and they completely did another. That’s what I’m in the middle of now. And you know what? Okay. I got my taste of it, because I’ve had four different head coaches in four years. A bunch of different coordinators.”

Mayfield struggled with the Browns for the majority of the 2021 season, as he never got things going and added onto his struggles with a painful shoulder injury.

Mayfield had surgery to fix a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder this past offseason.  Dr. Orr Limpisvasti, the Anaheim Ducks’ orthopedic surgeon, conducted the treatment.

The Browns traded for Texans QB Deshaun Watson after a grand jury did not criminally charge Watson, who has been accused by 22 women of sexual misconduct during therapy sessions.

Despite the fact that Watson is unlikely to face criminal charges as a consequence of the claims, he may still face civil lawsuit and possible NFL punishment.

“I’m just looking for stabilization right now,” Mayfield told the podcast. “And like I know what I need to do for me to be the best organization of me and be able to lead an organization. And like I’m in a good place right now. I have no clue where I’m going.”

Mayfield also named Seattle “the most probable choice,” while he admitted that the Colts might have been a contender if former Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan hadn’t been sold.

“I really, truly honestly have no regrets of my time in Cleveland of what I tried to give that place,” Mayfield told YNK.

“True Clevelanders and true Browns fans know that, and that’s why I can walk away from the whole situation feeling like I did it.”
