Despite looking pretty impressive in the preseason it doesn’t appear that Baker Mayfield is going to play much this season.
On Monday, Browns coach Hue Jackson made it clear that Mayfield was not going any snaps with the first team during the preseason.

On Monday, when reporters asked coach Hue Jackson if he’ll give Mayfield the chance to take some reps with the first-team offense during the preseason, Jackson emphatically shot down the notion.
“No, no, no, no, no,” Jackson said, per Cleveland.com. “Everybody’s asked me that a ton of times. Why? I’m going to tell you the reason why. We are learning a new system, and I think Tyrod needs every rep that he can get with the ones.
“I think Baker’s doing outstanding with the twos. If something happens and we need to put him there, we will. Right now, that hasn’t happened.”
While Mayfield is keeping the bench warm for Tyrod Taylor he’s making sure to maximize his money off the field.
Today, Mayfield released an absolutely ridiculous photoshoot in collaboration with PSD underwear that featured a tiger and a Rolls Royce.
Of course the Internet had jokes about Mayfield’s strange photoshoot.
