The Cleveland Browns have a major decision to make at quarterback this offseason. Committing to Baker Mayfield with a contract extension is an option, but it's thought that Cleveland could do its homework on other options ahead of the 2022 campaign.

Browns Trade Rumors

Now a report says the Browns are ones to keep an eye on regarding a potentially huge shakeup at QB.

Baker Mayfield Trade Rumors

ESPN's Dan Graziano claims the Browns are "doing their due diligence" on veteran quarterbacks that could be available via trade. He added that there's been "rumblings" about Cleveland possibly moving on from Mayfield to pursue an upgrade.

"I heard lots of rumblings in the latter part of this week about Cleveland making a trade for a quarterback and possibly shipping out Mayfield."

The timing of this news isn't a coincidence. The past week saw a blockbuster trade land Russell Wilson with the Denver Broncos, putting pressure on the Browns to contend in the AFC.

Another noteworthy development is the recent legal ruling involving Deshaun Watson, whose trade market is heating up with him expected to return in 2022. Cleveland was considered a hypothetical player in the Watson sweepstakes, and this report seems to indicate real interest there.

This will continue to be a situation to watch as more suitors emerge for Watson. It's clear the Browns want to explore every option before paying big money to keep Mayfield around.
