The Cleveland Browns and quarterback Baker Mayfield don't appear close to agreeing on a new contract.

Mayfield's agents have yet to engage in substantive talks with Cleveland regarding an extension, and talks could stretch into October, Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports.

The two sides have not exchanged proposals, but there's no sense of urgency to finalize an agreement before the start of training camp or the regular season, Cabot adds.

Mayfield recently said he was in "no rush" to complete a new deal and would prioritize finding success on the field.

The Browns already picked up the former first overall pick's fifth-year option for 2022, and the club is also working on extensions for cornerback Denzel Ward and running back Nick Chubb.

Mayfield joins fellow 2018 first-rounders, Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills and Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens, in seeking a lucrative second deal.
