Baker Mayfield's Immature Social Media Post is Why Browns Want to Move On

When reports came out that the Cleveland Browns were going to meet with Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson, it put the whole league on notice that Cleveland wasn't long for Baker Mayfield. Mayfield put it upon himself to get ahead of the noise and post on all his social media accounts a somewhat cryptic message to Cleveland that's been open to many interpretations.

The past 4 years have been nothing short of truly life changing since I heard my name called in the draft to go to Cleveland. This is not a message with hidden meaning. This is strictly to thank the city of Cleveland for embracing my family and me. We have made many memories and shared growing in this process through all the ups and downs. I have no clue what happens next, which is the meaning behind the silence I have had during the duration of this process. I can only control what I can, which is trusting in God's plan throughout this process.
I have given this franchise everything I have. That is something I've always done at every stage, and at every level. And that will not change wherever I take my next snap. Whatever happens… I just want to say thank you to the fans who truly embraced who I am and the mentality that aligned so well with this city's hard working people. Cleveland will always be a part of Emily and my story. And we will always be thankful for the impact it has had and will have in our lives.

In the video above, Chris Broussard thought this move was immature and premature. Rob Parker puts himself in Mayfield's shoes and wonders why the organization didn't just cut him if they have their eyes on other talents around the league.

Chris Broussard: "I think Baker Mayfield's tweet was both immature and premature and I think that it was exhibit A as to what the Browns are talking about. It was childish. Why are you saying farewell to the city of Cleveland? You don't know what the Browns are gonna do with you. If they told him prior to his tweet that they're trading him then that's one thing. But we don't have any evidence of that at this point. This is him being hurt and in his feelings."
Rob Parker: "I think he's doing what most of these millennials do which is they tell their business all over social media and it's fine. Maybe it's not the way you or I would handle it but this is how they respond...Chris you're saying he's supposed to be like nothing happened when you're married and your wife decided to go out with another guy and try him out."
