Baker Mayfield, QB (CLE)

Finally getting surgery

Mayfield (shoulder) will have surgery Wednesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mayfield's outlook for 2022 would be more worrisome if the surgery was for his throwing arm. As is, Mayfield should be ready for training camp, if not the Browns' offseason program. He's scheduled to play out 2022 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, and while the Browns reportedly plan to retain him as their starter, according to Rapoport, it's unclear if they'll seriously discuss an extension. Even after accounting for the injury that plagued him since Week 2, the past season was a clear step back from the year before, both for Mayfield personally and the Browns offense as a whole.
