Baker Mayfield says it's not true that he said that he was going "to f--- the Browns up." On the Around the NFL podcast, Cynthia Frelund claimed that Mayfield told her that he was going "to f--- them up" when asked about the Panthers and Browns Week 1 matchup.
This offseason, the Browns decided to move on from Mayfield and the former first overall pick ended up with the Panthers. The Panthers and Browns play in Week 1. "I want to win in everything I do, that'll never change," Mayfield said, per CBS Sports.
"That is not how I phrased it, that's not even what I said, so I'll just leave it at that."
Myles Garrett on Mayfield's alleged comments
After Browns star pass rushed Garrett was asked about Mayfield allegedly saying that he was going to f--- them up, Garrett didn't really have problems with it.
"We've known he has that type of demeanor and that attitude, and for better or for worse, it works for him," Garrett said of Mayfield's alleged comments, per Cleveland.com. "And I'm not mad at him using that fire and that chip on his shoulder to help him play to the level he has.
He's been successful in what he's done. We'll take it and we'll use it, and I'm hoping for a great matchup. I don't think any less of him because he's going out there and doing the same thing he did when he was with us.
He's the same guy personally, and maybe we'll see a different Baker when we get on the field. Who knows?" Earlier this year, Mayfield said he felt the Browns were disrespectful toward him. Now, Mayfield is in Carolina and is aiming to get his career on the right track and prove that he is a quality quarterback in the league.
