Baker Mayfield Uncertain About His Future in the NFL: ‘No Clue What Happens Next’
Baker Mayfield took to social media Tuesday to thank fans and tell them he has no idea what the future holds for him in the NFL. “With many uncertainties, here is where my head and heart is,” Baker captioned his statement, which felt like a goodbye to the franchise and city.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield sent the following message the same day that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson met with the Browns about a potential trade. Even if the Browns don't land Watson, Mayfield could still be traded from Cleveland.
“The past 4 years have been nothing short of truly life changing since I heard my name called in the draft to go to Cleveland. This is not a message with a hidden meaning. This is strictly to thank the city of Cleveland for embracing my family and me,” Mayfield, who had surgery done on his shoulder back in January, wrote. “We have made many memories and shared growing in this process through all the ups and downs. I have no clue what happens next, which is the meaning behind the silence I have had during the duration of this process. I can only control what I can, which is trusting in God’s plan throughout this process.”
The former No. 1 overall pick replied, “Whatever happens.. I just want to say thank you to the fans who truly embraced who I am and the mentality that aligned so well with this city’s hard working people.”
