Seattle Seahawks Trade Offer #1 For Baker Mayfield
The Cleveland Browns are entering “win-now” mode. The additions of Watson and Amari Cooper this offseason have showcased the organization’s aggression and adding another player to the mix will be a desire if possible.
DK Metcalf is entering the last year of his rookie contract and there’s no guarantee he re-signs with the Seahawks. He’s had some issues, but perhaps the Wilson trade will clear some of that up. However, if Seattle is interested in moving on from Metcalf it’s possible that moving him in a deal for Mayfield could allow the Seahawks to acquire a quarterback without sacrificing many future assets.
On a one-year deal, Metcalf’s trade value will be a bit down but he’s still an intriguing player. Especially to the Browns who could combine him with Amari Cooper, Jakeem Grant and possibly even a return of Jarvis Landry or addition of Will Fuller.
As for the return to Seattle, it wouldn’t be bad. We know what would come with Baker Mayfield and it probably wouldn’t be enough. Greedy Williams and Anthony Schwartz are going to have more value to Seattle than they currently do in Cleveland.
Williams took some time to settle in, but is still only 24-years old with upside. He recorded 10 passes defended in 2021 while intercepting two passes and logging 41 tackles. He would be a huge addition to the Seahawks secondary that needs young talent.
As for Schwartz, he’s only 21-years old, turning 22 in December, and didn’t live up to expectations in his rookie year. With all the movement at the wide receiver position in Cleveland, Schwartz’s role is going to dwindle regardless. He sweetens the deal for Seattle and lessens the blow of losing Metcalf.
