The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Kevin Stefanski addressing the Baker Mayfield situation
As it stands right now, Baker Mayfield is still a member of the Cleveland Browns.
It’s hard to say there were many who saw this being the case this long after the Deshaun Watson trade, but the Browns simply have not gotten an offer they like for Mayfield. A big reason for that could be the lack of starting jobs being available after Matt Ryan landed in Indianapolis and Tom Brady elected not to retire.
On Monday, head coach Kevin Stefanski spoke on the situation and said he would love to have had it all resolved already.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“It’s a unique situation,” Stefanski said. “We’ve got to see how it plays out. I think of all of us would love an answer yesterday, but that’s not the reality of it.”"
Stefanski did say he hopes all is resolved soon and then turned his attention to the players who he does have on his team. He added that he hopes for a normal offseason after COVID messed up their plans in 2020 and the offense — with a nudge from JC Tretter — elected to stay away from workouts in 2021.
"“Officially cancelled our Browns season tickets today and asked for a refund as they were paid in full. Very sad after 40 years as a fan, but this is my line in the sand. I believe women. Especially when there are 22 of them. That press conference did nothing to change my mind.”"
Cleveland’s front office had to know there would be incredibly strong reactions to the Deshaun Watson addition and this is one such possible fallout they had to be prepared for. Watson continues to claim his innocence and did so in his introductory press conference, which just so happened to be on the same day Andrea Thome tweeted out her disapproval.
Kevin Stefanski wants the Baker Mayfield situation resolved and our own Eddie McDonald has a potential fit for him. Of course, that fit is with the Pittsburgh Steelers which would surely anger many fans — but it would be very interesting.
There are still a few players who spent 2021 with the Browns who are looking for a new home for the 2022 season. John Suchan names five of them in his latest piece.
