Baker Mayfield didn’t say goodbye to Cleveland Browns fans in a statement posted on social media, but he seemed to come close.
“This is not a message with hidden meaning,” Mayfield wrote, in part. “This is strictly to thank the city of Cleveland for embracing my family and me. We have made many memories and shared growing in this process through all the ups and downs. I have no clue what happens next, which is the meaning behind the silence I have had during the duration of this process. I can only control what I can, which is trusting in God’s plan throughout this process.
“I have given this franchise everything I have. That is something I’ve always done at every stage, and at every level. And that will not change wherever I take my next snap.”
