The Cleveland Browns have decided to keep Baker Mayfield as their starting quarterback for the 2022 season.

Mayfield, the top pick in the 2018 NFL draft, is entering the last year of his rookie contract. He is expected to be given an extension or the franchise tag.

Coming off a successful 2020 season, the Browns struggled to a 7-9 record this year and, due to his shoulder injury, were without him in their season finale on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Backup Case Keenum started at quarterback in place of Mayfield and led the Browns to a 21-16 victory.

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski and Mayfield have spoken during exit meetings, and they’re on the same page regarding the quarterback’s future with the team. Mayfield got a fully guaranteed $18-plus million deal to stay in Cleveland.

Mayfield’s season wasn’t exactly perfect. He suffered several injuries, including a shoulder fracture, and he had to skip three games. Still, it wasn’t all on Mayfield, as various factors contributed to the Browns’ shortcomings this past season, including game-plan issues and execution.

In 2021, Mayfield threw for 3,010 yards and 17 touchdowns. He’s also had 13 interceptions and an 83.1 passer rating.
