There’s little surprise left when it comes to whether or not Baker Mayfield has a future in Cleveland with the Browns. It’s just a matter of time before the team figures out how to trade him so they can begin the Deshaun Watson era, for better or worse.
In the meantime, Baker doesn’t seem to be sticking around. After news broke that Mayfield would not be joining Watson and other offensive players in the Bahamas for a bonding trip, now comes word that his yearly youth football camp will be in Norman, Oklahoma, and not Ohio.
Mayfield posted the news on his social media feed on Thursday.

“If you haven’t already heard, my Youth Football @ProCamps is back in Norman this summer! I’m excited to hit the field with #SoonerNation,” Mayfield tweeted.
It’s pretty logical for the camp to move to Oklahoma, where Mayfield was recently honored with a statue to commemorate his Heisman Trophy-winning career with the Sooners. While he waits to find out where the next stop is on his NFL journey, he might as well tap into the appreciation that Oklahoma fans have for him, no matter what went down with the Browns.
A fresh start for Mayfield is exactly what’s needed, and that appears to mean a special opportunity for kids in a different place who’ll get to benefit from it this summer.
