CLEVELAND (AP) - A losing season hasn’t cost Baker Mayfield his starting job. Browns general manager Andrew Berry says the team expects the 26-year-old quarterback to return as its starter next season and rebound after an injury-filled, sub-par 2021. Mayfield tore a labrum in his left shoulder in Week 2 but continued to play while wearing a harness. The injury contributed to his playing poorly and contributed to the 8-9 Browns missing the playoffs despite high expectations. He’ll have surgery on Jan. 19. Mayfield went 6-8 as a starter this season. He completed 253 of 418 passes with 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, including seven in his last three games.
