Dan Patrick: "I don't think Baker Mayfield is elite. But, I think when he embraces his role, then he can be very good, and the team can be very good. Is that enough to beat one of these teams when you get to the playoffs...this would be my strategy if I'm a GM. I would say 'You know what? You're not Mahomes. You're not. I'm gonna give you an 80% offer. Do you wanna stay here at that price? We can use that salary elsewhere. You wanna do this?' That would be my approach. Now I might lose some players, but you look at these teams that are top heavy with these salaries, and it's really hard to win when that happens."

On today's edition of The Dan Patrick Show, Dan Patrick and the Danette's talk about what the Browns might do in the offseason with former #1 overall pick Baker Mayfield's contract situation, with Dan questioning whether or not the QB is worth a megadeal given the way the Browns are constructed.
