Getty Images Baker Mayfield of the Cleveland Browns meets with head coach Kevin Stefanski.

The Cleveland Browns appear set on trading quarterback Baker Mayfield but Robert Griffin III believes his former squad should pump the brakes on any potential deal.

Mayfield has been on the trade block since Deshaun Watson arrived via blockbuster trade to take his job.

However, a looming suspension for Watson has caused some uncertainty for the Browns, who have a roster ready to compete for a championship.

Griffin believes that the Browns should hang on to Mayfield and start him until Watson is ready to roll — whether that be in 6-8 games or a full season.

“I think the Browns should offer the olive branch to Baker and ask him to stay. If Deshaun Watson gets suspended for a significant amount of time. Baker’s proven that, you know, in this city, he can go win a playoff game, get you to the playoffs do all those things,” Griffin said while on the Rich Eisen Show. “Last year he played hurt and didn’t and what wasn’t very effective. But the bottom line is Baker Mayfield is better than Jacoby Brissett.”

Brissett has been thrown into some tough situations but his career record as a starter sits at 14-23. He has thrown for 7,742 yards, 36 touchdowns and 17 interceptions across 60 appearances. He’d be a decent fill-in for the Browns but doesn’t carry the history or upside Mayfield has when healthy.

Being able to basically showcase his skills for a handful of games for the Browns would not be the worst-case situation for Mayfield. He’d play behind a strong offensive line, utilize a stellar ground game and has familiarity with head coach Kevin Stefanki’s offense.

It’s important for Mayfield’s future to show he can be a franchise quarterback, with his rookie deal ending after this season. The former top pick is coming off a down season where he completed 60.5% of his passes for 3,010 yards, 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He had surgery on a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder this offseason but will be ready to roll for training camp.

“[Watson] is going to be the quarterback there at some point, unless he’s suspended indefinitely, and some other things down the line happen. So I think the Browns would approach Baker and say we need you, we’re sorry how this all worked out. But we want to give you an opportunity to go out there and prove yourself. And I think Baker should take that.”

Baker Mayfield Said He’s Ready to Move On From Browns

Unfortunately, the idea of Mayfield sticking around in Cleveland seems farfetched at this point. Mayfield was asked about the idea of starting again for the Browns during his youth football camp on June 28 and sent a clear message about his perspective.

“I think for that to happen there would have to be some reaching out,” Mayfield told reporters during his youth football camp in Norman, Oklahoma. “But we’re ready to move on, I think — on both sides.”

Before the Watson trade went through, Mayfield requested a trade, feeling slighted by how things went down in the team’s pursuit of a new quarterback. And Mayfield doesn’t mind holding a grudge, so the chance that he ever wears orange and brown again is extremely slim.

Change Ad Consent Do not sell my data Advocates Call to Fast-Track Bill to Phase Out Horse Carriages After Yet Another Overworked NYC Horse Violently Collapses on Pavement

Groups in New York City are demanding emergency action by the city council to fast-track a bill to phase our horse carriages in the city after the latest horse collapse.

A horse violently collapsed on pavement this week and was beaten by its driver in Manhattan. It was an extremely hot day, and a video taken by a witness shows the driver hitting and whipping the horse with reins trying to get the animal to stand back up and keep working.

“Get up! Get up! Get up! C’mon, get up,” the driver yelled at the horse.

The horse, named Ryder, fell on the pavement on 45th Street and 9th Avenue in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. The horse was not able to get up for over an hour. The horse appeared to be in heat distress and dehydrated, and no veterinarian was present to give care.

Onlookers in the area were outraged at the driver’s abuse of the exhausted animal. The police arrived and attempted to cool down the animal by spraying it with cold water before the horse was eventually able to get up.

“Yet another carriage horse has collapsed in distress on the hot pavement of New York City as onlookers express shock and horror while the animal is repeatedly beaten. This latest incident illustrates how insane it is to force these animals to pull heavy carriages in extreme heat in the busiest part of the busiest city in America. How many more horrific tragedies will it take to end carriage horse abuse in New York?” said Edita Birnkrant, NYCLASS Executive Director.

The group that represents horse carriage drivers said that the horse was examined and found to be suffering from a neurological disease but animal activists are not sure that is the truth. It would not be the first time a condition of an overworked animal was blamed on something other than exhaustion.

NYCLASS, PETA, and other groups are calling for an investigation into the incident and for an update on the horse’s condition from an independent veterinarian.

“In addition to offering immediate placement for the horse into a sanctuary and proper vet care, we are calling for an investigation into what led to this life-threatening incident, as well as an update on the condition of this horse. We are also calling on the City Council to take action and pass legislation to phase out carriage horses and replace them with a humane alternative. The world is watching and everyone can see that half measures are not working,” Birnkrant said. 

A bill is being introduced by Queens Democratic Councilman Robert Holden to finally replace horse-drawn carriages with electric ones by June 1, 2024. The legislation would give horse drivers preference for licenses to operate the new electric carriages. It also requires them to be paid prevailing or union wages set by the city comptroller.

Horse-drawn carriages and horse rides are not quaint and romantic! These poor horses are subject to walking for hours on end in sometimes extreme weather without adequate breaks. We need to work toward banning carriage rides and protecting these animals from being exploited!

If you are a resident of NYC, please make a call or email to your NYC council member and ask them to “sign on as a co-sponsor to Intro 573 to replace suffering, dying carriage horses with cruelty-free electric carriages.” NYCLASS says to make sure to tell them what district you live in, and the list of Council members can be found here.

NYCLASS says that if you don’t live in NYC, please call Council Speaker Adrienne Adams at 718-206-2068 or email at [email protected] and ask her to use her voice and power as the head of Council to “END horse abuse by supporting Intro 0573  to replace deadly horse carriages with cruelty-free electric carriages!”

While you’re at it, please sign this petition and tell New York that it’s time to end horse-drawn carriage rides.
