Why Baker Mayfield Says He And Odell Beckham Won’t Be Tamed In Cleveland Because He Knows The Real OBJ (Video)

It’s time to feel ‘dangerous’ in Cleveland once again.

In a wild week for the Cleveland Browns, that saw them overnight become Super Bowl contenders with the addition of Odell Beckham, Jr., things couldn’t be going any better for the Dawg Pound.

In an off season that has already seen the Browns bring in controversial running back Kareem Hunt (who was suspended 8 games Friday), LB Olivier Vernon, and new head coach Freddie Kitchens things are good in Cleveland.

QB Baker Mayfield is a large part of the optimism surrounding the Browns going into 2019.

After setting the NFL Rookie season record with 27 touchdown passes, Mayfield is ready to go with his new weapon in the dynamic Odell Beckham, Jr.

Mayfield made his first public comments today since the Beckham trade as he was visiting the Milwaukee Brewers and NL MVP Christian Yelich, whom he is close friends with.

Mayfield said of the trade that he is ready to,

“Let it rip!”

And,

“It’s an exciting time in Cleveland, absolutely. The fans there, after having a decent year, nothing that we were too happy about, were unbelievably satisfied. But now, I can’t even imagine.” 

Speaking on his relationship with Giants RB Saquon Barkley and WR Sterling Shepard and what they said they would get in OBJ as a teammate, Mayfield said,

“I know exactly who OBJ is inside the locker room and who he is to his teammates. That’s the most important thing. People can have their attitudes and perspective on it, but he’s [Beckham] himself and he also has his teammates’ back.”

There will be no shortage of excitement for the Browns coming off a 7-8-1 season that saw them play some of their best football toward the end of the season.

Optimism is sky high and with it comes lofty expectations.

It appears though that the ‘dangerous’ Mayfield is ready to meet those expectations saying,

“I haven’t been back yet [to Cleveland], so it’s going to be really exciting to go back.”

Flip the pages to see Mayfield’s comments and that time he woke up feeling dangerous.
