With the Browns still unable to find anyone to trade for Baker Mayfield, some have suggested that Baker should offer to reduce his guaranteed salary to get the Browns to release him. Ben Maller doesn't think that Baker Mayfield should give back a single dime to Cleveland.
Ben Maller: "You never give money back. You don't do it. Never do it. Wait patiently. Do what you have to do to pass the time...Baker Mayfield has all of the leverage in this situation. He knows the amount of money he is going to make, and ultimately, while we like to think that it's all about winning championships, it's a job."
