Rachel Bonnetta’s message to Baker Mayfield amid Browns drama
Rachel Bonnetta sent Baker Mayfield an emotional DM after the Browns quarterback wrote a heartfelt letter to Cleveland amid “uncertainties” about his player future.
“There are certain guys that you always keep an eye on, and I will always love Baker,” the NFL Network host said on the Extra Points podcast. “I sent him a DM and said, ‘Thanks for everything. I will Always Love You.'”
Bonnetta continued to read her message to Mayfield, which she said had not opened the DM.
“You made the right move. Thank you for everything over the last few years. I can’t wait to see where you go next. I’ll be a lifelong fan,” she read out loud.
Bonnetta is an avid Browns fan who posts frequently about the team.
“I have never respected, loved and admired Baker as much as I do now,” she said. “Ask anyone, he seems to be from Cleveland with the amount of love he has for this city, the fans and this team that has been cruel for so long. He had so much energy, literally putting his body on the line and writing a heartfelt letter.”
Mayfield released the apparent suicide note to Cleveland last Tuesday — the same day the Browns met with eventual successor Deshaun Watson.
“I have no idea what happens next, what is the meaning behind the silence I have had throughout the duration of this trial,” Mayfield wrote at the time.
The Browns traded for Watson this Friday in a mega deal with the Texans that saw the quarterback waive his no-trade clause to go to Cleveland on a five-year, $230 million contract that is fully guaranteed .
As for Mayfield? He requested a trade out of Cleveland last week while the Watson deal was heating up, but the quarterback market is thinning by the day.
On Monday, the Falcons sent veteran quarterback Matt Ryan to Indianapolis, where Mayfield was reportedly a preferred trade.
The Seahawks turned out to be a potential landing site for Mayfeld. Seattle could reportedly pursue the former first overall pick after selling Russell Wilson to the Broncos in a blockbuster deal earlier this month.
The Panthers are another team in dire need of a quarterback. But they are still reportedly not interested in Mayfield after losing the Watson sweepstakes.
