Things are starting to get messy in Cleveland.

On Thursday afternoon, the Browns revealed that they planned to bring Mayfield back as their starting QB next season after missing out on landing Deshaun Watson, who they met with this week about a potential trade.

Hours after the Browns lost out on the Watson sweepstakes, it was reported that Mayfield had requested a trade out of Cleveland because he was angry at the team’s pursuit of Watson.

The Browns immediately shut down Mayfield’s trade request, and we now have a standoff.
