Mayfield working out for Dolphins, will visit Browns, Jets next
Former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield has a workout with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday as he continues to make the rounds ahead of next month's draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Mayfield, who threw for 4,627 yards and 43 touchdown passes in 2017, will also visit the Cleveland Browns on Thursday and the New York Jets on Saturday, the report says.
He visited the Buffalo Bills on Monday.
Widely expected to go early in the draft, Mayfield's schedule puts him in front of teams with high draft picks and potential need at quarterback. The Browns have the first and fourth picks and the Jets have the third. The Dolphins and Bills pick at 11 and 12, respectively.
The Jets made a trade with the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday to move up from No. 6 to No. 3, fueling speculation the team is looking to add a franchise QB this offseason.
Last Wednesday, Mayfield held a Pro Day at Oklahoma, where he showcased his abilities in front of representatives from all 32 NFL teams. A large contingent from the Denver Broncos, who pick fifth, was on hand for that performance.
Mayfield led the Sooners to a Big 12 title and a berth in the College Football Playoff, where Oklahoma lost a double-overtime thriller to Georgia.
