Baker Mayfield's heard all about the Browns' quarterback misery Deshaun Watson Jersey , the horrid history of failures and flops since 1999.From Tim Couch to Jeff Garcia to Derek Anderson to Johnny Manziel and so many others, 29 quarterbacks have started in Cleveland before Mayfield, who isn't taking any pride in being No. 30."It's 2018," he said. "Don't really care."But maybe 30's a charm for Cleveland.As expected, Browns coach Hue Jackson named Mayfield the team's new starter on Monday, just days after the No. 1 overall pick replaced an injured Tyrod Taylor and dazzled in his pro debut by rallying the Browns to a 21-17 come-from-behind win over the New York Jets 鈥?Cleveland's first since 2016.Taylor's concussion forced the Browns to alter their plans and play Mayfield sooner than anticipated.The Heisman Trophy winner didn't disappoint."He went out there into some tough situations, down 14 late in the second quarter, and handled all of that extremely well and went and played well. He checked off every box for me," Jackson said."I am not surprised by what he did in the game. I do not think that his teammates are. I do not think that the coaches are. I think that we knew, once he got his opportunity, he would go in there and nail it."That is what he did."Under the national TV spotlight, Mayfield came in late in the first half and showed a seasoned veteran's poise. He made quick decisions and even quicker throws while completing 17 of 23 passes for 201 yards in just more than one half.It was quite an entrance.Mayfield seemed to be the only one not enthralled with his performance, which ended with Browns fans signing his name as they partied outside FirstEnergy Stadium following Cleveland's first win in 635 days.He has bigger plans."I didn't come here just to win one game and I didn't come here just to start the next," he said. "We're building a franchise here and we're turning it around. It's about culture, so being that same person every day, which means finding that happy medium, never listening to the outside noise."Mayfield knows he's been anointed as some kind of Cleveland football savior, and he's not backing down from the job."That's what I signed up for," he said. "I'm living my dream and I wouldn't have it any other way. Without pressure, I don't think this would be very much fun, without all the people watching and finding joy in this game. I love this game, and without the competitive nature, I wouldn't enjoy it."Jackson said he hopes Taylor will be cleared from concussion protocol in time to back up Mayfield on Sunday against the Raiders. If not Zach Cunningham Jersey , veteran Drew Stanton will be active.As for Mayfield, Jackson has been impressed with his quick development and acknowledged the switch happened sooner than he anticipated.But Jackson is also confident Mayfield is prepared to take the starting job and run with it 鈥?it's why the Browns took him ahead of every other player in the draft.Jackson has changed QBs before. This switch feels different."This was a guy that we picked together, that we went all-in on unanimously and said this is the guy for the future," Jackson said, referring to general manager John Dorsey and his coaching staff. "The guy that we picked for the future of the organization is now the starter of the team."Taylor's influence helped accelerated the learning curve for Mayfield. The Browns signed Taylor, who guided Buffalo to the playoffs last season, to serve as a "bridge" quarterback until Mayfield was ready. But although that connection is complete, Jackson said the team needs Taylor."He's right here, not going anywhere," Jackson said. "That's important. Part of Baker being able to play like he did was because of Tyrod and Drew, so I don't want to upset that room that way. Tyrod's going to be needed. He's the backup quarterback on this team if he's healthy. He's played and his teammates know who he is and the way he goes about the rhythm of his game."So I think it's always good to have that kind of depth at that position."Mayfield's elevation was welcomed inside Cleveland's locker room by teammates who believe he's destined for greatness.After LeBron James left this summer, the city has been looking for someone to take the NBA superstar's place.Mayfield could be the one."I keep saying this is the Baker Era and stuff," wide receiver Rashard Higgins said. "If it pans out how it's supposed to be, Baker might be the next big thing. He might be on the LeBron wall."NOTES: LB Christian Kirksey returned to practice after missing two games with a sprained ankle. ... DE Myles Garrett was on a stationary bike during the portion of practice open to media members, but Jackson said the former No. 1 pick "is fine." ... Name change: The Browns signed TE Pharaoh Brown to the practice squad and released TE Pharaoh McKever. The 6-foot-6 Browed played at Oregon and went to high school in Cleveland.

Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsI think it’s fair to say that expectations for Brian Gaine heading into the 2019 offseason were fairly high. His 2018 offseason and draft were solid, especially with the resources he had. Heck, even signing Tyrann Mathieu to a one year “show me” deal was a mighty fine move, especially at the price.With a metric kitten-ton of both draft and salary cap capital, the Houston Texans had the resources to be a much improved team in 2019. Instead, it went south pretty quickly, starting with free agency.When the Texans signed Brandon Dunn, I mean Christian Covington, I mean Angelo Blackson to a three-year, $12MM contract, it was a serious head-scratcher. He’s just a body who does nothing to improve the Texans. Sure, this is an “on the edges” kind of signing, not really a team-killer, but to give such a fungible player a contract like this is questionable.Then Julién Davenport Jersey , we got lucky! Gaine’s apparent free agency strategy seemed to be that he draws a line in the sand for salary; if that line gets crossed, he’s out. This worked out swimmingly for the Texans when the Kansas City Chiefs backed the Brinks truck up for Mathieu, who wasn’t worth the $7MM we paid him in 2018. Despite of himself, Gaine got lucky when Mathieu signed with the Chiefs.March 12th started out well enough. After losing out on Mathieu, Gaine picked up Tashaun Gipson, probably a better player at this stage of their careers, for far less than what Mathieu received.Gipson’s three-year deal was a good move.For me, losing Rodger Saffold to the despised BE-SFs of Methoptamia was the beginning of the end. Saffold’s four-year, $44MM deal would have easily fit within our cap constraints, and as one of the best guards in the NFL, he would have quickly upgraded the offense line AND given a rookie left tackle a great veteran presence. Alas, it seems that Saffold’s salary number crossed Gaine’s line in the sand, so shrug emoji.Signing both Bradley Roby and Briean Boddy-Calhoun to one-year contracts means you really don’t care, just like you really didn’t care with Mathieu. There were several other CBs to chase, but we settled for a guy who can’t play against WR1s or WR2s and a guy who has been terrible in the slot the past two seasons. If they play well? They’ll chase the money like Mathieu did. I would have taken a shot at Steven Nelson or Jason Verrett to multi-year deals. You gotta take risks to be successful, and neither player would have hamstrung our salary cap.Speaking of, Morris Claiborne is still without a team.Gaine then signed AJ McCarron to back up Deshaun Watson. That’s akin to an Indy driver’s back-up car being a Yugo.All throughout the offseason, Gaine failed to find help for the interior pass rush, probably feeling pretty proud of himself for that sweet Blackson signing. We could have handled Malik Jackson’s (three years, $30MM from the Eagles) or Sheldon Richardon’s (three years, $36MM from the Browns) contracts easily. Or Gerald McCoy’s deal with the Panthers, which broke a particular writer. Ndamukong Suh and Muhammad Wilkerson are both still free agents, at least.We also signed the worst OT in football Will Fuller Jersey , Matt Kalil, to a contract.Then, of course, there was the 2019 NFL Draft. In retrospect, it seems like the only film Gaine watched was from the Senior Bowl, as the first three picks—Tytus Howard, Lonnie Johnson, and Max Scharping—all participated. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that Gaine watched any other game tape.The Iggles, of course, jumped ahead of us to grab Andre Dillard. Passing on Jawaan Taylor is also terribly confusing. If you believe that Howard was our first choice all along, I have mountain property to sell you in Conroe. As of now, Howard seems to be a less athletic version of Julie’n Davenport. At best, he’s a major project.Continuing the theme of passivity in the second round, we didn’t move up to take a pro-ready CB (who is apparently already running with the 1s) in Greedy Williams. Instead, we passively waited for Lonnie Johnson, whose tape is simply awful. Look, maybe Williams can’t tackle. Fine. Johnson can apparently neither tackle NOR cover.Max Scharping seems like a fine right tackle prospect, but he’s still another project. So, if you’re counting along, the Texans’ offensive line projects include Howard, Davenport, Scharping Nick Martin Jersey , and Martinas Rankin. Do you really think Mike Devlin and Bill O’Brien are the best candidates to coach up those guys?To be fair, Kahale Warring looks like a fabulous pick. But taking a fullback who doesn’t know how to play his position in the seventh round is next level stupid. The Texans should have been far more aggressive in moving up to help the team in 2019.Instead, our first three picks in the first two rounds are serious projects. Sure, this might turn out to be the best draft in NFL history EVAR, but all signs currently point to no.Because of the timing of Gaine’s firing, I believe the Texans coaches got together, looked at what they had after OTAs, and panicked. Placing Gaine’s termination on Jadeveon Clowney’s contract situation makes no sense because it’s been like that for a while now. No, this is about the offensive line.Ultimately, Brian Gaine had one job during the 2019 offseason: improve the offensive line and better protect your wunderkind QB. Gaine failed miserably.Instead of signing Saffold (or any other real offensive lineman in free agency), Gaine passed. Instead of being aggressive in the draft to grab Dillard, he got jumped. He panicked by taking Howard. Scharping’s ceiling is pretty middling.Gaine overly focused on offensive line versatility. Look, if you want to have a guy who’s comfortable playing both OT spots and another guy or two who can play all three interior positions, great.However, your starting offensive linemen should not be mixed and matched. This same strategy killed the offensive line early last season, and it’s going to kill us again this year. Versatility does not create cohesion and continuity, two things that greatly helped the offensive lines during the Gary Kubiak years. We still do not have adequate talent on the offensive line to mitigate the risk to Watson, and the risk is amplified by the “versatility” we keep hearing is so prized.In today’s NFL, you win by getting the other team’s QB dirty while keeping your QB clean. This afternoon, Brian Gaine was fired for not doing nearly enough, or really much at all, to better protect Deshaun Watson in 2019. It was undoubtedly the correct move to ax Gaine. The Texans need to make one more change to get this franchise back on track.
