Baker Mayfield Gets Engaged. Should The Cleveland Browns Be Concerned?
Baker Mayfield got engaged to his girlfriend Emily Wilkinson over the weekend, and it might be a cause for concern.
The Cleveland Browns rookie announced the news on Instagram with a photo of himself popping the question. He captioned the proposal, “Can’t wait to do life with the most perfect girl. Emily Wilkinson, I love you.”
First off, congrats to Mayfield and his future wife. I’m always happy to see other people living their best life and being happy. Getting married is obviously a huge step in a person’s life.
Having said that, I’m not sure this was such a smart thing to do. Mayfield has known the blonde bombshell for about six months. That’s not exactly a long time. Second, he’s about to be the face of one of the most depressing franchises in all of pro sports. He hasn’t even thrown a pass yet, and he’s already focused on marrying a woman he’s known for a few months. Seems a bit quick.

If I was the Browns general manager or head coach, I wouldn’t be loving this at all. I want Mayfield focused on slinging touchdowns. Now, I’m not saying he shouldn’t get married. I’m simply stating that maybe he should slow down a little bit. Let’s focus on getting a year of football under our belt before we rush off to get married.
I wish nothing but the best for Mayfield and Wilkinson. At the same time, let’s take some time to evaluate the situation. Focus on football above all else at this point of his very young career.
