2. Baker Mayfield
Baker Mayfield was set up for failure with the Browns trading for a quarterback after most of the league vacancies had been filled. It seems likely at this point the Browns will be forced to drop Baker and allow him to find a new team. If that is the case Atlanta should have a level of interest if Baker is willing to sign a prove-it deal. Otherwise, he will be outside of their price range. Trading for Baker shouldn’t be an option either unless the Browns were willing to pay a large portion of his salary for a small return.
It seems increasingly likely that Baker is a draft bust and not the player the league thought he would be. However, in the market for a franchise quarterback, Atlanta would have nothing to lose bringing Baker in and allowing him to compete. His swagger and play style are as entertaining as they can be frustrating. Giving the quarterback a chance in Atlanta if he is cut or traded for little return would be a savvy move. One that gives Atlanta a slight chance at finding a long-term answer at the position. Baker deserves one more shot at proving he isn’t a bust why can’t that chance happen in Atlanta?
