"I do not think Baker disrespected anybody on what he said. He spoke what he felt," Kitchens said. 

Jackson was fired from the Browns last month. 

The Bengals hired Jackson two weeks later. 

"At some point, everybody is going to realize that it does not matter what anybody else says – it does not matter what anybody says in Cincinnati, Baltimore, Pittsburgh or anywhere – it is about what is said here," Kitchens said. 

On Monday, First Take threw shade at Mayfield on Instagram saying that he, "needs to grow up".

Mayfield saw the post and commented by saying, "Not even comparable...I didn't lose 30+ games be fake and then do that...I wasn't gonna have a scholarship. Good try though buddy."

Kitchens defended Mayfield's comments saying, "Baker is not going to blow smoke up anybody's ass."

"If he said it, that is what he feels, and I am standing behind Baker Mayfield. I do not care about anyone who does not work in this building and what they think about what he said. That is what I stand behind is him and the players in this locker room,” Kitchens said. 

The Browns head down to Houston on Sunday to play the Texans.
