Baker Mayfield, QB (CLE)

Shoulder surgery goes well

Mayfield underwent a successful procedure Wednesday to repair the torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports.

According to the report, the quarterback's recovery period is expected to fall in the 4-to-6 month range. Additionally, the Browns anticipate that Mayfield should be able to begin light throwing in April and participate in the team's offseason program on a limited basis. Beyond that, the expectation is Mayfield will be fully recovered for the start of training camp and enter 2022 as the Browns' starting signal-caller, per Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft is heading into the final year of his rookie contract, which is worth a fully guaranteed $18.86 million in 2022.
