Cleveland Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield throws a pass against the Pittsburgh Steelers

After a tumultuous 2021 campaign, the Browns have some question marks at quarterback. Here are the Browns 2022 starting quarterback odds.

Baker Mayfield (-250)

Despite 12 names appearing on the complete list, Baker Mayfield remains the favorite to be the Browns starting QB in 2022.

Mayfield has had a unique route to his fifth-year option, including playing for four head coaches in as many seasons. Mayfield's production took an enormous dive in 2021, and the Browns could potentially look to replace him this offseason.

However, trading away the injured No. 1 overall pick won't be easy, and there's not many other names that make a ton of sense for the Browns. Notably, Kirk Cousins does not have any real odds.

Jimmy Garoppolo (+180)

It's no secret that Jimmy G's time in San Francisco is expiring after the team elected to draft Trey Lance just a year ago. The 49ers don't have much leverage, so the Browns could swoop in and acquire a veteran QB for cheap.

Garoppolo has experience in the Kyle Shanahan and Kevin Stefanski offensive scheme. He's efficient, and won't make mistakes. Hell, the Browns probably win the AFC North this season if Jimmy G was the starter.

But is he an upgrade over Baker Mayfield? Meh.

Derek Carr (+250)

The +250 odds for the Browns starting Derek Carr came as a bit of a surprise, as they are lower odds than veterans such as Ryan Fitzpatrick (+300) and Mitch Trubisky (+500).

Carr would be an undoubted upgrade, but his future in Las Vegas is cloudy. With a new head coach and GM looming, it seems as if the Raiders as an organization need to handle their own business before evaluating the future of their franchise quarterback— who is still under contract.

Russell Wilson (+500)

Again, intriguing odds for a very big name. Perhaps, you're just paying for the name, however.

Russell Wilson has a no-trade clause. He has had no public interest in waiving that to join the Browns. Wilson, 33, would likely cost several high-end draft picks. Doesn't seem like a sensible bet.

Aaron Rodgers (+1400)

Let's get crazy.

If Rodgers was truly done with the Green Bay Packers, the Browns immediately become an option because of their talent at on the interior offensive line, run game, and first-round wide receiver.

Stefanski didn't make any sweeping changes, retaining offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. Van Pelt and Rodgers have a great relationship.

If your a Browns fan, a small wager on Rodgers coming to Cleveland would result in a great payout for your wallet and your favorite football team.
