Carolina Panthers QB Baker Mayfield Takes a Shot at the Cleveland Browns Ahead of Game

Baker being Baker.

Former Cleveland Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield demanded a trade away from the Cleveland Browns,  and he was finally dealt to the Carolina Panthers during the offseason after a long standoff. This week Baker will face his old team, as  the Carolina Panthers will host the Cleveland Browns. Mayfield is more than ready to face his former squad, and obviously it’s a big game for him. Baker still seems upset at the Browns  by the way they limited him offensively. When speaking with the media ahead of their game, Mayfield took a jab at the Browns for being a run-first team.


“You know they’re going to want to run the ball,” Mayfield said of the Browns Wednesday. “That’s the motive there. That’s never going to change and we’re going to want to just try and score a bunch of points and get our defense out there to play fast, and so we’ve just got to play complimentary football when it comes down to it.”

Mayfield also compared the two offenses and said he feels much better in Carolina’s offense. That seems to further confirm Mayfield felt limited by head coach Kevin Stefanski.

The Browns went 8-9 last season, but they were 11-5 the previous year, and actually won a playoff game, which might have been enough of a reason to hold onto Mayfield forever. Mayfield played while injured last season and looked below average.  But he had a good season in 2020 but the NFL is a What have you done for me lately league.

Baker clearly not a fan of how Kevin Stefanski handled him in Cleveland.
