Baker Mayfield summed up his attitude about Odell Beckham Jr. joining Jarvis Landry in the Cleveland Browns offense this way: let it rip
"You could say the same thing about me; you do not want to tame it," the Browns quarterback told reporters in Milwaukee Brewers Locker Room in Phoenix.
"You just let them be yourself and make plays. That's who they are, and when it comes down to it, the guys in that locker room, you're going to love playing with them. "
Mayfield was at the Brewers' Spring Training Camp because he is friends with outfielder Christian Yelich. Mayfield's attitude has been his mantra since he joined Browns and was part of the reason he set up a newcomer. His comments were the first since the Browns acquired Beckham and the defensive end of Olivier Vernon in a trade with the Giants earlier this week.
Record with 27 touchdowns passes in 2017. His comments came in response to a question about Beckham and Landry being large personalities, and with them, maybe he should just let it rip.
"I know from Saquon [Barkley] and Sterling Shepard [of the Giants]who I'm very close with, I know exactly who the OBJ is inside the locker room and who he is with his teammates, "Mayfield said. "That's the most important thing. People can have their attitudes and perspective on it, but he's himself and he also has his teammates back."
Mayfield called Brown's potential potentially exciting and said team's offense will "be a thing
"It's an exciting time in Cleveland, absolutely," Mayfield said. "It's an exciting time in Cleveland, absolutely," Mayfield said. "The fans there, after having a decent year, nothing that we were happy about [7-8-1]were unbelievably satisfied. But now I can not even imagine.
" I have not been back yet, so it's going to be really exciting to go back. "
