Cleveland Browns rumors: Jamar Taylor still being shopped

Ironically, if Mayfield were to succeed - a relative term for the Browns and their quarterbacks - the rest of the league nearly surely would rethink its traditional scouting standards for the next wave of anti-measureables. Cleveland recently picked up quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills this spring, which led many fans to believe that Taylor would be the Browns' franchise quarterback.

"The guy knows how to play the game, and knows how to win", the former Chiefs GM said on the first night of the draft per ESPN. You simply don't draft a player at that position so high without expecting an immediate impact. "That is the way it should be because I can play out of the 'gun".

"It's not going to be something that separates the locker room", he said Friday before his first rookie minicamp practice.
We have the incumbent starter and bridge player Tyrod Taylor, the dependable backup Drew Stanton, and the future of the franchise in Baker Mayfield.

"I'm going to come in with the mindset to compete but also the hunger learn (behind Taylor)", Mayfield said.

His ability to decipher defenses at speed will prove vital in the National Football League, and its an area that Dorsey was particularly impressed with whens studying his tape. For now, Mayfield is the star but also just one of the guys trying to make a sound first impression. This gave them a chance to see No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield in action.

But Mayfield's a pro now, he claims more mature from his mistakes, and he's got a clean slate and a new set of priorities.

"He definitely seems like a very passionate coach so he reminds me a little bit like coach [Kerry] Coombs so I'm definitely excited to be working with him", said Ward.

Mayfield said he met Taylor when the QB stopped in while he was in quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese's office. "They brought him and I in because we're both team-oriented guys".

What do you think the Browns could get in return for Jamar Taylor? "It started at the combine, just talking to him and listening to some of the things he said..." "He is the starter and all I can do is help us out". "Why he lasted that long (in the draft) is beyond me".
