Baker Mayfield clearly still has some bad feelings towards former head coach Hue Jackson. The Cleveland Browns rookie signal-caller took to social media on Monday, November 26 to not only call out ESPN analyst Damion Woody, while also blasting Jackson, who was recently fired by the Browns before accepting an assistant gig with the division rival Cincinnati Bengals.
Mayfield was responding to a video that showed Woody questioning Mayfield’s maturity and saying that he “needs to grow up.”
Mayfield’s response was:
“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,” Mayfield wrote.
This isn’t the first time Mayfield threw shade at Jackson, either.
Following Sunday’s game between the Browns and Cincinnati Bengals — which was a win for Cleveland — Mayfield shared his thoughts on Jackson’s move to Cincinnati at the post-game press conference while also trying to avoid his former head coach while shaking hands with opposing players in the immediate aftermath of the game.
““Left Cleveland goes down to Cincinnati. I don’t know,” Mayfield said, via NFL Network’s Marc Sessler. “That’s just somebody that’s in our locker room asking for us to play for him & then goes to a different team we play twice a year. Everybody can have their spin on it, but that’s how I feel.”
Cleveland currently sits at 4-6-1 on the season, but is riding a two-game winning streak. Up next for the Browns is a meeting against the Houston Texans on Sunday, December 2. The Browns are currently led by interim head coach Gregg Williams.
