The Cleveland Browns were hoping for a resolution with QB Baker Mayfield sooner rather than later but that has not happened yet. With the NFL draft next week, it is possible that Mayfield makes it through that event still on the team.

Both the team and the quarterback are in a difficult spot with a divorce mandatory not just an option. How that split happens could be a huge story for both sides as well. A trade to a team, like Carolina or Seattle, that really wants him could help Cleveland recoup some cap space and a little draft capital.

For Mayfield, this offseason was expected to be a celebration but an injury in 2021 leading to a poor performance setup the team’s pursuit of Deshaun Watson.

His true celebration was Friday as Oklahoma revealed his statue from his Heisman Trophy days in Norman. Unfortunately for Mayfield, the negatives found him even at this celebration as the statue looks nothing like him:

While social media has made numerous jokes, it is another sad piece to a sad offseason for the quarterback who led the team back to the playoffs in 2020. While it is an honor to have a statue made to celebrate his great college accomplishments, it will be overshadowed by the poor execution of said statue.

Hopefully, Mayfield and Cleveland will find a resolution to their separation soon that benefits both sides and helps the quarterback move on from last year and the poor performance by his statue maker.
