Baker Mayfield did something no Browns quarterback has done since Tim Couch: Start every reagular-season game.

That’s what you want from your franchise quarterback, although we know the production wasn’t anything to celebrate.

But with Mayfield taking amost every snap, fans still know little about former AAF standout Garrett Gilbert. When Gilbert did enter a game, he wasn’t asked to throw.

Since he was given such little opportunity, my opinion still of him still remains hight, although it will be interesting to see how the re-vamped Browns’ front office will consider his services.

Gilbert is said to be a friend of Baker Mayfield’s, as the two attended the same high school where they were four years apart.

The 2019 season was a rough one for Mayfield, who was humbled on a weekly basis in his sophomore season.

Kitchens was hired because it was perceived publicly to be the best move for Mayfield. The two worked magic in the second half of 2018, and no one wanted to mess with it.

5 free agents the Browns should sign for 2020. dark. Next

Baker continued to disappoint though, so you’ve got to wonder if Paul DePodesta and and the gang will let Baker keep his friend around, or if they’ll seek a player who better fits their “alignment.”
