Baker Mayfield hasn’t played a single snap in the first two preseason games for the Cleveland Browns. That won’t be the case this Sunday when they take on the Atlanta Falcons.
During this Friday’s press conference, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed that Mayfield will play in the team’s preseason finale.
Stefanski didn’t say how many snaps Mayfield will receive on Sunday against the Falcons. However, he did mention that he plans on taking a cautious approach to this weekend’s game.
“We try to be smart about everything we do,” Stefanski said, via ProFootballTalk. “That’s why the joint practices are so important, because it’s a controlled environment where our Ones got close to 60 reps against their ones in a controlled environment. So it’s all part of it. The way you practice and the way you play is similar. And it’s all good work, is the way I look at it.”

After a disappointing 2019 season, Mayfield bounced back in 2020 and proved that he can lead the Browns to success. He finished last season with a 62.8 completion percentage, 3,563 passing yards and 26 touchdowns.
This is going to be an extremely important season for Mayfield. He’s on the fourth year of his rookie contract and needs to put up strong numbers this fall if he wants to receive a lucrative extension.
Mayfield can knock off some rust in Cleveland’s preseason finale before he suits up for a Week 1 showdown with Kansas City.
