What’s next?

Week 1 will be a good test for the Browns as they try and win an opening season game for the first time since 2004 and try and sack Mayfield along the way. The showdown is set.

There will likely be a lull in the Mayfield controversies, but don’t you worry, he’ll be at it again soon enough. Maybe he’ll say something about a Carolina Panther teammate like he did a couple of years back about former Browns player Duke Johnson seeking a trade.

Johnson recently responded back at Mayfield when the quarterback wanted to be traded.

Maybe he’ll say something about his current head coach after a team loss.

Whatever he’ll do we’ll all hear about it and know that that’s just par for the course when we talk about Mayfield.

He’s done a lot of good things for his former Cleveland team. He helped the current organization regain some respectability. His efforts in that resurgence should be respected by fans of the team. He lasted four seasons and brought stability to a position that has been laughed about for decades.

It’s disappointing the way the two sides parted ways when the Browns traded for another controversial quarterback in Deshaun Watson.

In a similar position, many of us would also be upset about how our former employer treated us so it’s not exactly a shock how Mayfield has reacted. However, his whole career has been controversial.

As someone who has supported the Browns and their quarterback, I hope one day Mayfield just sticks to playing the game and becoming an even better quarterback rather than trying to sell a $38 shirt to promote his latest moment in time.
