According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield "did not look ready to compete" with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns' starting quarterback job at OTAs and minicamp.
The Boston Globe had a similar report on Sunday. The Plain Dealer doesn't detail where exactly Mayfield is so far behind, but Taylor is a three-year starter with a 22-20 record the past three seasons on poorly-assembled Bills teams. He should open training camp as the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Still, Taylor would be beating the odds to keep the job beyond Cleveland's Week 11 bye. Jun 18 - 3:36 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the Browns are serious about starting Tyrod Taylor in Week 1, and that Baker Mayfield will begin his career on the bench.

Coach Hue Jackson has insisted as such but there is little reason to believe when a coach says such things. We are still dubious that the No. 1 overall pick will begin his rookie year riding the pine, but Taylor is a legitimate obstacle. Mayfield will need to light up camp and the preseason to give himself a shot.

Sal Maiorana of the Democrat and Chronicle believes it would be "utterly shocking" if Nathan Peterman does not start Week 14 against the Colts.

Maiorana notes Peterman took "all the first-team reps" in practice this week while Tyrod Taylor is still dealing with a sore knee which has given him a noticeable limp. If he does in fact start, Peterman will have a golden matchup, but he cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups following his debacle against the Chargers. Peterman getting the nod would also be a downgrade for Kelvin Benjamin.

Coach Sean McDermott announced rookie Nathan Peterman will start Week 11 against the Chargers.

"We were made to be more than 5-4, and I've come here to be more than 5-4," McDermott said. "Really, it's about becoming a better team. Every position is evaluated and that's the direction I decided to go." Taylor and the entire offense is coming off a horrendous Week 10 against the Saints, but that was his first bad game at home. Peterman came in late for mop-up work, playing his first 11 snaps of the season. He went 7-of-10 for 79 yards and a score and was handpicked by McDermott and the new regime as a fifth-rounder. He had a nondescript preseason. His first NFL start will be on the road in L.A. against the Bolts. The offense will continue to run through LeSean McCoy.
