Baker Mayfield remains a member of the Cleveland Browns and given general manager Andrew Berry's latest comments, it doesn't seem like that's going to change any time soon.

"I wouldn't really get into that type of speculation. But the reality of it is, quarterbacks are valuable," Berry said via Browns reporter Zac Jackson. "Baker is a good player and you can't have enough good players on your roster. We've already planned to make it work and we'll just see how the next few weeks go, the next few months."

Fans didn't wait long to start reacting to the news. At least a few fans think the Browns are trying to keep leverage in the situation.

"Andrew Berry is attempting to get some leverage back. I’d still be stunned if Baker comes back to the Browns," one person said.

"AB is trying to get that leverage back. We’ll see if it works," said another analyst.

One fan hopes Baker holds out - just for the social media content.

"I'm low-key really interested to see how both baker and the browns handle this situation. Baker holding out would be pure gold for content on the bird," another fan said.

It certainly seems like there is a chance Mayfield remains on the roster heading into the 2022 season.

Will the former No. 1 overall pick suit up for the Browns next season?
