While the future of his career with the Cleveland Browns remains a mystery, quarterback Baker Mayfield has been open about how some of the criticism has impacted him personally.
After making an explosive visit on the Ya Neva Know podcast, Mayfield spoke out on how professional football players are treated by the media. According to him, those who jeer NFL players would be “crumble” if he were to “show up to somebody’s cubicle and just boo the s-t out of them,” as he did.
In Mayfield’s words, “I would love to walk into someone’s cubicle and just boo the shit out of them and watch them crumble.” “And I’m completely wrong in saying that.”
He instantly apologized for making that remark, and he made it plain that he had no ill will toward Cleveland Browns fans. Nonetheless, the feedback has been overwhelmingly negative!
One of the fans responded, “If I got paid 18 million dollars to sit in a cubicle, I’m going to let him boo me all he wants.” A third person commented, “I wonder if Baker is aware that that’s an old Seinfeld joke from 30 years ago.”
“He can boo me all he wants for 15 million dollars a year.” “Hell, he can even throw things at me,” a third person wrote.
In Baker Mayfield’s first three seasons with the Cleveland Browns, the team had a plethora of defensive options. That’s especially true after he guided them to the postseason for the first time in more than 15 years in 2020.
However, following a disappointing season in 2021, a significant percentage of the fanbase turned against Mayfield. This was also true for the organization, which traded for quarterback Deshaun Watson in a blockbuster deal.
Baker Mayfield can only sit and wait, hoping that a team will come along and pick him up and ship him out of Cleveland.
