Baker Mayfield Reacts to Playing Against Jacoby Brissett And Not Deshaun Watson In Week 1

Baker Mayfield will ironically be playing the Cleveland Browns Week 1.

Mayfield recently weighed in on the quarterback situation in Cleveland. During an interview session with the press, NFL insider Josina Anderson asked Baker Mayfield his thoughts on facing Brissett in Week 1 instead of Deshaun  Watson. However, the Panthers quarterback is clearly focused on learning Matt Rhule’s playbook. The former Browns’ number one pick isn’t going up against Jacoby Brissett or Deshaun Watson, but instead he’s going up against Cleveland’s defense.

Watch Baker explain below:

Anderson doesn’t pull any punches, asking Mayfield for his take about Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension.

The Panthers quarterback doesn’t provide much of an answer, as it’s clear he’s going with it’s none of my business,” approach. Smart move.

Let’s assume Baker will be the starter, a little extra incentive for him to win over the starting job.
