The Cleveland Browns wanted Deshaun Watson.
When that failed, they decided to run it back with Baker Mayfield.
Here is a recap of this afternoon, and it is not even 5:00 PM EDT.

Now that Mayfield is done with the madness and requesting a trade (which the Browns have reportedly denied), let’s check how Browns and NFL fans are taking all of this news on this St. Patrick’s Day festive holiday.
An Ugly Breakup Coming
One person said that Kim and Kanye’s breakup may be more amenable than Baker’s with the Browns.
I think Baker and the #Browns break up may be a bit more contentious than Kanye and Kim…

More Of The Same
Someone took a painful look back at the Browns quarterbacks of this millennium and noted the pattern.

Someone else advises Browns fans to never buy the quarterback’s jersey.
Message to Brown's fans… Never buy the quarterbacks jersey 🤷🏼♂️

As an aside, Browns fans know how to handle their quarterback jersey purchases.
A guy named Andy showed up at @TutysBar yesterday while watching the @Browns . With a jersey like that I couldn't let him get away without a photo.
Despite the loss, I feel pretty good about our quarterback and esteem. pic.twitter.com/1h6pNoKn83

Former Player Reacts
Robert Griffin III is ironically a former Cleveland Browns quarterback.
“Baker Mayfield said he ain’t nobody’s Plan B. Good for him.”

How Is Everyone Doing?
No one can be feeling great about this turn of events.
The Browns, Mayfield, and fans are not in a happy place.
Someone posted what they suspected was the Browns’ reaction to Mayfield’s trade request.

Note the time of this Tweet was hours before the Mayfield mayhem picked up momentum.
No one knows what the final outcome will be.
The Browns are never boring, but this is even more drama than usual.
Buckle up and stay tuned Browns fans!
They should of never tried to get Watson
