.But it could have been much worse.Quarterback Baker Mayfield injured his ankle when he slipped on the first-down marker at the end of a scramble in the first quarter. Even though he did not miss a play Cleveland Browns Hoodie , the ankle was noticeably bothering Mayfield throughout the rest of the game. Luckily for Mayfield and the Browns, the injury does not appear to be serious, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:How much the ankle injury bothered Mayfield during the game is unknown, but he did have the worst day of his short NFL career as he completed just 47.8 percent of his passes, tossed two interceptions, took five sacks and never looked like the Mayfield that electrified Browns fans the past few weeks.Mayfield did not blame the injury on his performance, saying he was “good” in the post-game press conference, and head coach Hue Jackson said he did not believe that “it impacted him to where he could not play Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys ,” but it was clear that something was off all day with the offense. And it is fair to wonder if, once the Browns fell behind 35-6 in the third quarter, it may have been a good idea to sit Mayfield for the rest of the game to avoid doing further damage to his ankle.Hopefully it turns out that Mayfield is truly just suffering from “soreness” and won’t be forced to miss any time.John Dorsey needs to call the Raiders about Khalil Mack Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey has only been on the job for less than a year, but in that time he has shown he is not afraid to be aggressive when it comes to adding talent. Knowing that, it would not come as a surprise if Dorsey is burning up the phone lines trying to get in touch with Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie to see if he can work out a deal for linebacker Khalil Mack, the NFL’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year.Mack and the Raiders have been in a protracted disagreement on a new deal, and Oakland is reportedly open to the idea, if the price is right , according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network:Of course, just because the Raiders may want a pair of first-round picks doesn’t mean that is what they would get in a potential deal for Mack. (Remember how the “starting price” for former New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was a first-round pick? But the actual price was a second-round pick? It’s called negotiating.)But even if McKenzie held firm to the reported asking price, it is something that Dorsey and the Browns would have to consider very strongly. Mack has posted 36.5 sacks in the past three seasons, the second most in the NFL. Pairing the 27-year-old Mack with defensive ends Myles Garrett (age 22) and Emmanuel Ogbah (age 24) would give the Browns a trio to terrorize quarterbacks for the next several years.Mack is about to embark on the final year of his rookie contract and is set to make a bit more than $13.4 million this year. Any trade would involve an extension, naturally, but with the Browns having more than $55 million in available cap space, per, and the luxury of having numerous key players - including quarterback Baker Mayfield - on their rookie deals Cleveland Browns T-Shirt , the money is there. As for the asking price, two first-round picks is a high cost, but Dorsey to weigh the value of hoping those picks turn into viable players vs. knowing that Mack is already a proven player. Plus, if things break right, the second of those two first-round picks could be in the second half of the round.Dorsey has shown that he is not afraid to take a shot and there is no better player for the “football guy” to shoot for right now than Khalil Mack.
