FILE Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield plays in an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Monday, Jan. 3, 2022, in Pittsburgh.

On Tuesday, coach Kevin Stefanski was reluctant to address the polarizing QB at all.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Mayfield and the Browns came to this agreement after discussing multiple options. This option will not fine Mayfield for missing the minicamp. 

The three-day mandatory minicamp for the Browns will take place next week at Berea on Tuesday, Canton, Ohio, on Wednesday and FirstEnergy Stadium on Thursday.

The announcement of Mayfield’s excuse from minicamp comes as the Browns organization has been dealing with a busy week as more lawsuits have been filed against the team’s quarterback Deshaun Watson.
