When the Cleveland Browns kick off the 2022 NFL season, Baker Mayfield will be on the field with them. However, unlike in previous seasons, the quarterback will be on the opposing sidelines after he was traded this offseason to the Carolina Panthers.
The drama between the Browns and Baker started long before the team traded for Deshaun Watson. We know that Mayfield is going to be putting a lot of emotion and energy into getting revenge against the franchise he feels left him out to dry.
Meanwhile, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski was asked about what it will be like to coach against Mayfield instead of with him, and he told reporters that Cleveland will rely on what it knows about Baker as they plan.
“Baker obviously is a player that we know well,” coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters on Monday. “He knows us really well, too, in terms of scheme and those type of things. I think our players and our coaches have a real good understanding of his strengths.”
