Piles: Seahawks won’t trade for Baker Mayfield, but will follow up if cut

The Seahawks didn’t take the quarterback into the 2022 NFL Draft. Does that mean they won’t add to that room as we approach the start of the 2022 season?

With Drew Lock, Geno Smith and Jacob Eason as the top dogs in the quarterback, many thought the Seahawks would try to add another quarterback to the mix, especially the more consistent option.

Is the main option available? Baker Mayfield, the 2018 No. 1 overall pick who wouldn’t be a Browns starter after Cleveland acquired Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans.

So what are the odds that you’ll go after Seattle Mayfield? Former NFL Quarterback Jake Hibs He broke it through Jake and Stacey on Tuesday at 710 a.m. Seattle Sports.

“By trade? 0% chance,” Heaps said. “Via free agency after circumcision? 100% chance. That’s how I feel. This is the difference between the two. There is no way, how close the Seahawks will be anywhere in the interest of trading for Baker Mayfield. ”

Currently, Mayfield owes more than $18.5 million guaranteed for the 2022 season in the final year of his five-year rookie contract, according to Spotrac. Several analysts and insiders have reported that if Brown were to trade with Mayfield, they would have to take up a significant portion of his contract in order to transfer him.

But if that doesn’t happen, Brown may have to cut Mayfield altogether, take up his entire 2022 contract and allow him to sign with any interested team.

The Heaps doesn’t think the Seahawks will or should try to trade for Mayfield, even if the Browns will take half of his 2022 salary.

“But if Baker Mayfield is taken out, is he on the open market, and they can compete for his services? Yes, that makes a lot of sense,” he said.

In addition, Heaps believes that the Seahawks will be the most interesting choice for Mayfield for the upcoming season.

“I think if Baker Mayfield is looking at the landscape, the situation here in Seattle has to be infinitely more attractive than the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Carolina Panthers or anyone else who would be competing for his services,” Hibbs said. “I think the Seahawks would be a perfect fit for him and I think the Seahawks would have to be in that position 100% if he presented himself… in any way they would trade for him but if he got on the open market then we had better think they would spur The matter is and they will definitely be aggressive in their pursuit of it.”
