NY Giants QB Daniel Jones Reacts To Baker Mayfield Ripping Him During Interview

Early this morning, GQ magazine released an interview with Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield and Baker apparently had some interesting thoughts on the Giants drafting Duke’s Daniel Jones.

Near our booth, a SportsCenter segment about the New York Giants catches Mayfield’s eye. “I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones,” Mayfield says, about New York’s much-maligned draft-day decision to spend the sixth pick on the quarterback from Duke (whose college record was a measly 17–19). “Blows my mind.”

I tell Mayfield that I’m mystified that so many supposedly expert quarterback scouts seem unable to predict what makes a good NFL quarterback.

“Some people overthink it,” Mayfield says. “That’s where people go wrong. They forget you’ve gotta win.”

Jones, who was at practice this morning, issued a classy response when asked about Baker’s quotes.

Mayfield went on to say that GQ left out a ton of context and that his quotes were misinterpreted.

Giants fans aren’t buying Mayfield’s clarification.
