Why Baker Mayfield deal slowdown?

For several months now, rumors of a Baker Mayfield deal have been circulating.

Mayfield would be sent to the Seahawks as part of the deal, but it is still unclear what would be 

received in return. As was already mentioned, the Mayfield trade is more complicated than 

typical deals. The $18.8 million salary Mayfield will earn in 2022 is fully guaranteed, which is 

the underlying cause of the trade delay. The Browns do have the ability to pay a portion 

of the salary (of any amount they want), which could help sweeten the deal and 

increase the appeal of a trade for the team inheriting Mayfield's contract.
