Mayfield promises to have multiple suitors, including some of the teams that lose out on Watson.
Several other teams in need of a starting quarterback would be good landing spots for Mayfield, including the Colts, who went 9-8 last season and missed the playoffs when Carson Wentz faltered at the end, and the Seahawks, who went 7-10 in Russell Wilson’s final season there before he was dealt last week to the Broncos. Seattle received two first-round picks, two second-round picks and a fifth-round pick, as well as Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant and defensive lineman Shelby Harris. The Broncos got Wilson and a fourth-round pick.
On Tuesday night, Mayfield posted a cryptic, heartfelt message to the city of Cleveland thanking fans for supporting him throughout the years.
