Baker Mayfield's Wife Emotional Over Leaving Cleveland, 'A Lot of Tears'

Emily Mayfield is sad to leave Cleveland behind after Baker‘s trade to the Carolina Panthers … admitting it’s been an emotional process with “a lot of tears.”

The former #1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft spent his first four pro seasons with the Browns … but was shipped to Charlotte as a result of Cleveland’s controversial trade for Deshaun Watson.

As the 2022-23 season approaches, Emily is reflecting on all the memories she made with her husband … saying she had no idea she’d be saying goodbye already.

“It’s obviously been an emotional couple of days,” Emily said on Instagram. “Baker and I left last season, truly expecting to come back for another season (like the previous 4 years).

“No part of me thought it’d be the last time we’d leave that house together or the last time we’d shut it down to head out on our off-season adventures.”

Emily reminisced about all the experiences they shared at their first house as a couple — from barbeques and bonfires to holiday gatherings.

“I am leaving Cleveland with such fond memories,” she added. “I’m leaving this house with a full heart. This week brought A LOT of tears. It brought tons of nostalgia. But I’m so happy I felt those feelings… it means it was a good ride.”

Mayfield says she’s excited to create new memories in Charlotte, but admits “there’s just something about that first place ….. Thank you, CLE. You’ll forever hold a special place in my heart.”

But, on the bright side, Emily says a flight attendant noticed her puffy eyes on her flight from Cleveland … and gave her “the most massive pour” of wine.

Some people actually like Cleveland after all.
