On Monday, Browns coach Hue Jackson clarified Baker Mayfield’s standing on the team: he will warm the bench for Tyrod Taylor, who needs every rep he can get with the new system, and if they need Baker, they will use him.
Although there’s a good chance we won’t get our Baker fix this upcoming season, the 23-year-old Heisman Trophy winner is sure to stay in the headlines with his bold and fiery personality. The first overall pick in the NFL Draft may be the most marketable backup in the game, just today dropping a ridiculous photoshoot in collaboration with PSD underwear that featured a tiger and a Rolls Royce.
Mayfield showcased more of his personality by giving an Oscar-worthy impression of Browns general manager John Dorsey. If you’ve been following HBO’s Hard Knocks, you already know that Dorsey is a character who doesn’t seem to change out of a white Browns sweatshirts and an elf hat.
For the Browns rookie talent show, Baker transformed himself into Dorsey, complete with the hat, sweatshirt, and pleaded khakis, and gave a riveting performance that was teased on the Browns’ Twitter account.

If you guys need reference for Dorsey’s mannerisms, check out this video of the Browns press conference upon the opening of training camp.
If Kobe Bryant can win an Oscar for some shitty cartoon, Baker should be able to win one for his rookie talent show performance.
