CLEVELAND — Former NFL coach Rex Ryan trolled Baker Mayfield and the Browns on Sunday.
Ryan, who now works as a TV commentator, called Mayfield “overrated as hell” last week and slammed other elements of the second-year QB’s game.
Mayfield responded to Ryan's comments by saying,"in the wise words of (Cleveland coach) Freddie Kitchens, 'if you don't wear orange and brown you don't matter', and Rex Ryan doesn't have any colors right now for a reason. So, it's OK."
Which is exactly what Ryan did.
Ryan wore a brown suit and an orange tie on ESPN's NFL pregame show.

“Baker Mayfield better be happy I’m not in the black and purple today on that (Ravens) sideline cause he’d be in trouble,'' he said.
Their new found rivalry doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon.
