The Cleveland Browns’ new addition to their quarterback lineup, Deshaun Watson, arrived to join the first day of the franchise’s offseason workout program on Tuesday.

However, Baker Mayfield was nowhere to be seen at the workouts. The reason was that the 27-year-old has not accepted to partake and even attend the Browns’ workout program, as per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Cleveland has yet to show any signs to retain Mayfield back to its roster and it seems the franchise is fulfilling its QB’s request for a trade. His chances of playing in the NFL are dangling at the hands of any team keen on having him on board. However, his time is running out.

Rapoport explained if the former 2018 No. 1 pick is slated for trade before this year’s draft, which has been scheduled to take place in Nevada, Las Vegas on April 28–30, the franchise he most likely will land a spot with is the Carolina Panthers, since the team is currently “evaluating all the options.”

Additionally, the Panthers have been struggling with its trio of QBs — Sam Darnold, Cam Newton, and PJ Walker — in 2021. Therefore, the franchise is potentially looking to refitting its QB lineup.

However, Mayfield thinks otherwise. He revealed his intentions during the “Ya Never Know” podcast, and on the same occasion he shared his alleged mistreatment by the Browns and is currently “looking for stabilization.”

“I feel disrespected,” Mayfield said. “A hundred percent. Because I was told one thing, and they completely did another. That’s what I’m in the middle of right now — I’m just looking for stabilization right now.”

It remains unclear where, and even whether or not Mayfield will land a spot on any team. The QB and Cleveland appear not to be on good terms despite a few positive occurrences during his successful rookie career with the franchise.

"I feel disrespected," Mayfield said. "A hundred percent. Because I was told one thing, and they completely did another. That's what I'm in the middle of right now—I'm just looking for stabilization right now."
