Browns quarterback appears to know his fate with the organization as he posted what seems to be a farewell letter on social media Tuesday night.

Mayfield’s fate in Cleveland has been uncertain since the end of last season, even though the Browns exercised his fifth-year rookie option of $18,858,000 last year. The Browns appeared to be giving Mayfield an opportunity at a bounce-back year before giving him a massive contract, yet that doesn’t seem to be in the cards with the team reportedly interested in Deshaun Watson.
The Browns flew to Houston on Tuesday to pitch Watson on waiving his no-trade clause to come to Cleveland, a league source told ESPN. The Browns are one of four teams, along with the New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons, who are attempting to land Watson in a trade with the Texans. Watson has already met with the Saints and Panthers and is scheduled to meet with the Falcons on Wednesday.
If Baker Mayfield’s time with the Browns has come to a close, he deserves some credit and appreciation from Cleveland.
Not many could’ve overcome the obstacles, jumped into a dumpster fire and reignited a franchise the way he did.
Not perfect, but gave his all to Cleveland.
