Patriots considered trade to No. 2 for Baker Mayfield

However, assuming he does end up living up to the hype, we already have a helluva "what could have been" situation for him. The latest QB hand-picked to be the savior of the league's worst franchise, he's also trying not to be the latest QB to fail to live up to that hype (Hi, Johnny).

For the sake of the Browns' long-suffering fans, let's hope that for once-FOR ONCE!-they were actually right. The New York Jets, who took Southern California's Sam Darnold with the third choice, had re-signed Josh McCown and signed Teddy Bridgewater. Mayfield walked onto the Oklahoma football team and led them to the playoffs his final year.

Jack Mills, Mayfield's agent, joined the Business of Sports podcast and revealed that the Patriots had informed Mayfield's camp that they might trade into the No. 2 spot if Mayfield was available.

1 to Cleveland - as has been reported and widely speculated - if Josh Rosen goes No. 3 to the New York Jets - as has been reported and speculated - then surprisingly, improbably, Darnold could well be available by the time the Broncos are on the clock with their No. 5 pick.

Allen, one of the Browns' finalists along with Mayfield according to a source, was drafted No. 7 overall by the Bills, and Rosen went No. 10 to the Cardinals. "We had another team that said, 'You may get a big surprise on draft day at No. 2 if he is available.' And that team was the Patriots".

The Patriots did meet with Mayfield a week before the draft, but, according to the MMQB's Albert Breer, they had sought a meeting earlier in the draft before New England had acquired the No. 23 pick.

"I'm excited, you know, I said at the combine that I'd love to be that guy to help turn them around and I think if anybody's gonna do it, it's gonna be me".

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman appeared on WFAN on Monday afternoon with Chris Carlin, Maggie Gray and Bart Scott and said he got a "very reasonable offer" for the No. 2 pick. He did not mention the team involved.

Not only was this past offseason of 2017 a call of concern, but his on the field antics as well caught a lot of negative media coverage that may come back to haunt him. With a deep quarterback class this year, some thought the Patriots might look for a backup to develop behind Brady over the next few years.

As Roger Goodell stepped up to the podium in a packed out AT&T Stadium the name he was expected to say wasn't meant to be Baker Mayfield, up until a few hours beforehand he wasn't going to be the quarterback that had a chance of being number one. The Ravens have made it clear that Joe Flacco is still their quarterback, and they want Jackson to learn and flourish under him (comparing it to Tom Brady and Jimmy Garropolo who is now making waves in San Francisco).
