We finally have some clarity on what Baker Mayfield plans to do this offseason as he waits for a trade.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting that Mayfield will throw on his own to a few receivers.

"What I am told is that he is throwing with a couple of veteran receivers in Cole Beasley and Danny Amendola down in Texas," Garafolo said. "So Mayfield is continuing to get the work in. I would expect that that's the way it's going to continue until the situation with the Browns resolves itself. I wouldn't imagine he'd go back to Cleveland for the spring session."

It's a matter of when, not if, for when Mayfield will be traded. He's not going to want to back up Deshaun Watson next season.

Mayfield is coming off major offseason shoulder surgery after he battled multiple injuries in his non-throwing shoulder.

It affected his play as he only threw for 3,010 yards with 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

He'll look to get back to the level he was at in 2020 when he finished the season with 26 touchdown passes off of 3,563 yards.
