Since Cleveland traded for quarterback Deshaun Watson nearly two weeks ago, the franchise has faced criticism for signing the three-time Pro Bowler. However, Browns general manager Andrew Berry told reporters at NFL owners’ meetings on Tuesday that he regrets the way the trade took place.

Berry, steadfast at the idea of ​​being able to communicate with his player, coaches and staff, met with Baker Mayfield’s agent at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this month and stated that the organization was looking into other signal-callers. Berry, however, did not tell Mayfield’s agent that he was meeting with Watson in Houston on March 15, three days before the organization traded for the former Texan quarterback.
