Baker Mayfield trade target No. 1: Washington Football Team
The season isn’t over just yet and already there are “rumors” and “reports” that the Washington Football Team would be willing to trade a top-10 pick for Mayfield. Now, I use the words “rumors” and “reports” loosely, as you should never believe any of the rumors until they are confirmed. We will see that a ton over the next four months leading up to the NFL Draft.
Washington will officially announce the new name of the team on February 2nd and it would be quite fitting if they added a new quarterback as well.
Hypothetically speaking, if that “rumor” was in fact true, should the Browns take that offer? The answer has to be yes, right? In a heartbeat. That would be a haul that Andrew Berry could use at his disposal in the draft, an area he has excelled at in his first two years with the Browns.
Taylor Heinicke has had moments where he has looked like Washington’s franchise guy, but there were also times that he looked like the complete opposite. While Baker is really similar in that regard, he is an improvement over Heinicke.
Mayfield would inherit the wide receiver duo of Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel, along with running back Antonio Gibson. If he could return to his 2020 late-season run form, he and McLaurin could be one scary combination in the Nation’s capital.
Washington is much like Cleveland in using a countless number of quarterbacks since 1999. Maybe this current Cleveland Brown can be the guy to change the future of himself and the Washington Football Team.
Only time will tell what Berry will decide to do in regards to Mayfield, but you can rest assured knowing that people will be debating and arguing about this until a move is actually decided upon.
