Potential Busts: QB Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns
The Browns invested heavily in their offense this offseason, but the signing of Case Keenum doesn't bode well for Baker Mayfield.

Andrew Berry became the NFL’s youngest GM when the Browns hired him in January. On the free agent negotiating period’s first day less than two months later, he signed three offensive players, whose contracts are potentially worth a combined $102 million, of which $58 million is guaranteed.

While Baker Mayfield stands to benefit from the additions of tight end Austin Hooper (four years, $42 million) and tackle Jack Conklin (three years, $42 million), it’s quarterback Case Keenum (three years, $18 million) who provides Cleveland with an alternative if Mayfield doesn’t improve after an awful 2019 season.
