CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are making a name for themselves in the national media again.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield is looking dangerous for GQ.
“A lot of people in the world today, they don't like the truth. They'd rather you just tell them something that they want to hear. Baker's not going to be like that. ... It's your problem if you don't like it. It's not his.” —Freddie Kitchens https://t.co/WuD5kjHh48— GQ Magazine (@GQMagazine) August 20, 2019
In the magazine, Mayfield discusses everything from coming to Cleveland to dangerously planting the Oklahoma University flag on the center logo at Ohio Stadium.
“A lot of things I do are orchestrated, but things like [that], in the moment, emotionally, I'm just being me,” he remembers. “I worked so hard to beat them after they beat us at home the year before that I was so excited and overcome with emotion that one thing led to another. But a lot of Ohio people didn't like me after that one.”
Mayfield isn't the only one that landed in a magazine on Tuesday, the wide receiver duo of Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry will be featured in Sports Illustrated.
Landry was acquired by the Browns in March 2018 and Beckham came to the Browns after a blockbuster trade this March.
The pair played together at Louisiana State University and always dreamed of teaming up again in the NFL.
“We didn’t think it was possible,” Landry says. “We wanted it to be. Like: ‘Bro, damn. What if ... ’”
Last month, OBJ graced the cover of GQ and Mayfield was on the cover of ESPN's magazine.
