Baker Mayfield is the first-string quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, but if he is not available, the Browns need at least one – and possibly two – highly reliable backups. The Browns should have been okay with Case Keenum and Nick Mullens manning the second-string and third-string positions, respectively, but for whatever reason the coaching staff did not make the move to Keenum even when it was obvious that Mayfield was not able to throw accurately while injured in 2021.
Hopefully, the Browns will learn from their mistakes and go with three quarterbacks on the 53-player roster in 2022.
Evidently, the Browns didn’t feel that they had a quarterback who could play at a higher level than an injured Mayfield, who was near the bottom of the NFL in 2021.
