Cleveland Browns News

Baker Mayfield, Browns exercise fifth-year option

The Browns exercised Mayfield's fifth-year option worth $18.86 million for the 2022 season Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: It's not much of a surprise to see Cleveland pick up the option for the 26-year-old, which the team also did for teammate Denzel Ward. Mayfield helped the Browns secure their first playoff victory in 26 years last season after completing 63 percent of his passes for 3,563 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions while also rushing for 165 yards and one touchdown in 16 games.

Stephen Carlson, Sticking with Cleveland

Carlson signed his tender as an exclusive rights free agent with the Browns on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: Carlson returns to a crowded tight end room, one which currently features Austin Hooper, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku at the top of the pecking order. It seems unlikely that he'll garner any larger a depth role than he served in Cleveland over the last two seasons, when he caught six of nine targets for 62 yards and one score in 25 appearances.

Damion Ratley, Signs with Detroit

Ratley is signing with the Lions.

Analysis: The 2018 sixth-round pick has been waived or released by three teams within the past seven months. Ratley does have six NFL starts to his name, but he's caught only 29 passes in 31 career games, primarily with the Browns.

Rashard Higgins, Back in Cleveland

The Browns and Higgins agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Higgins will stick with the only organization he's known after putting up a career-high 599 receiving yards during the 2021 season. He reeled off his 37 receptions at a clip of 16.2 YPC, but the return to health of Odell Beckham (knee) in the fall again will relegate Higgins to No. 3 in the wide receiver pecking order behind OBJ and Jarvis Landry.

Damion Ratley, Let go by Texans

Ratley was released by the Texans on Tuesday.

Analysis: Ratley joined the Texans part way through the 2020 season, though he spent the majority of his time on the practice squad. The three-year veteran has never logged more than 13 receptions in a professional season and will now look to latch on with another roster as a depth piece.
