CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield may not have won Rookie of the Year, but he won something better.

Mayfield was named Cleveland's Professional Athlete of the Year at Wednesday night's 19th Greater Cleveland Sports Awards.

He beat out fellow rookie teammate Denzel Ward, Indians pitcher Corey Kluber and Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez to win the award.

Mayfield was the number one pick in the 2018 draft, and took home seven Rookie of the Week awards this season.

He threw 3,725 yards, which is the most ever by a Browns rookie.
