This off-season, the Cleveland Browns are still trying to decide whether to commit or not to quarterback Baker Mayfield, while at the same time are eyeing Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson.

If the Browns make Mayfield available for trade, the opportunity to acquire the QB would go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as the franchise is on the lookout for a QB to replace Tom Brady. At least, that was the previous news until Brady decided to cancel his retirement plans and return to the NFL.

Tampa Bay’s scouting for a quarterback, according to multiple reports, suggests that both general manager Jason Licht and head coach Bruce Arians have been evaluating eight QBs so far, and one of them is reportedly Mayfield.

In addition, the Buccaneers might already have found Brady’s heir in the team’s own lineup in QB Blaine Gabbert. But this does not stop the Buccaneers from eyeing other much better QB options per multiple reports, which led them to the 26-year-old Mayfield.

While the wind of fortune appears to have presented itself on Mayfield’s side, the Browns remain undecided. Releasing Mayfield would put the franchise at great risk since they are not sure what assets they could get to replace him.

Moreover, trading Mayfield prior to acquiring Watson is not possible as the franchise does not have anyone in place to trade for the Texans’ QB.
