Pete Carroll said on Sports Radio 93.3 KJR-FM in Seattle that he doesn’t envision the team trading for a veteran QB, though he was not asked specifically about the Baker Mayfield situation. Carrol says this, “I’m not saying anything you didn’t think I was going to say, but fortunately that’s always been the way we’ve operated, and it fits again. So we’re looking. I don’t see us making a trade for anybody at all. I don’t see that happening. But we’re certainly going to continue to be open to chances to help our club, and meanwhile we’re just going to be battling and competing our tails off. There’s always possibilities, so we keep open to that.”
What does this mean specifically?
Pete Carrol said that they are open to looking but not looking to trade. So far it looks like Baker Mayfield is not going to be traded. Baker is more likely to be released by the Browns with every day that goes bye. If he is released by Cleveland, I’d say that Seattle may be interested in signing him as a free agent. This is nothing for certain, but Carroll wasn’t against adding competition, as he said “they’re open,” to improving the team.
