Breaking: Lawrence Expected To Be Released Due Sizable Option; Baker Mayfield To Jacksonville Jaguars?

Written by Chris Powers

What an off-season this has been for the NFL. It seems like every year there is one prominent storyline to the NFL off-season, and this year it just so happens to be quarterback turmoil across the NFL

The biggest focal point of quarterback turmoil has been Baker Mayfield’s status in Cleveland. As everyone knows by now, a few weeks ago the Browns signed the hottest free agent in the NFL, DeShaun Watson, to be Mayfield’s replacement. While Mayfield could certainly still land a starting job, there has been rumors that he could potentially find himself in Jacksonville back in up Trevor Lawrence.

According to Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports’, Jimmy Garoppolo may actually be a better backup to Lawrence than Mayfield.

In other NFL news, the New York Giants have to determine whether or not they are going to re-sign defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence. Analysts predict that Lawrence will likely not be with the team at the start of the 2022 season due to his costly $22 million 5th year option. With that said, the Giants could still invest in him as he has been an asset to the organization defense. They have until May 2nd to figure out whether or not they will start the 2022 season without Lawrence.

“Lawrence can go either way,” writes Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “He has not missed a game in his three years and his durability is a big plus. He can stop the run and on occasion can penetrate into the pocket but he is not a big-play pass rusher (nine sacks in 48 games) by any stretch of the imagination Lawrence is only 24, he causes no trouble, brings an effervescent energy to the defensive line room and would have to be replaced by a player who would ask to get paid the way the Giants would have to pay Lawrence in 2023.”
