Panthers Quarterback Baker Mayfield Denies Ever Saying He Was Going to F–k Up the Browns

The Baker Mayfield drama seems to have followed him all the way to Carolina.

The Carolina Panthers new QB, Baker Mayfield, will start Week 1 against his former team, Cleveland Browns. Earlier this week Buffalo Bills reporter Cynthia Fredlund went on a podcast and said that during a brief conversation with Mayfield following the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills preseason game, he said that he was going to f–k up the Browns. This week Baker Mayfield denied having ever said it.

“Well, first I didn’t say it. Obviously, I mean, everyone’s going to write whatever story they want. There’s history that I played there the last four years. I’m an extremely competitive person. Everybody knows that. If I wasn’t wanting to win then there would a really big issue of me being quarterback here. I want to win in everything I do. That’ll never change. Now, that is not how I phrased it. It’s not even what I said.”

Watch Baker explain below:

Could it be Baker is backtracking on his comments because Myles Garrett caught wind of his comment? Not a guy you want to piss off. Is there anyone who really, honestly thinks this is anything but Mayfield trying to walk back bulletin board material? When the report of Baker saying this hit the press, I for one didn’t blink, it sounded right on brand  for Baker.

He hasn’t even played a regular season game for the Carolina Panthers and he already has taken issue with the way he’s being quoted in Buffalo.

New team, same old Baker.
