Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield made comments critical of teammate Duke Johnson last week during the team’s minicamp, and although he’s the face and the leader of the team,  how did the veterans on the squad feel about his comments? 

Johnson was present for minicamp, and Mayfield was asked if it’s an awkward situation.

Apparently some of his teammates were not thrilled over Baker sticking his nose in a teammates business. 

“It is rather striking for a player to get involved in a teammate’s business in anything but a supportive role,” Silver said on the network. “Baker Mayfield is the clear leader of that [locker room] but I’m told by multiple sources that several veterans came up to him in the locker room after those comments about Duke Johnson and let’s say voiced their displeasure, saying, ‘Listen it’s one thing to be the leader but this is a guy who is going through something, it’s business and we need to support him.’

“Baker may not have agreed with them, but he heard them.”

One of the Browns who approached Mayfield may have been receiver Jarvis Landry, who was supportive of Johnson.

“I still have a relationship with Duke,” he said. “I’m happy that he’s here, it’s good to see him, but outside of that, I hope it works out for us as the Browns and for him if that’s the way that it goes. He’s a tremendous talent and he’s capable of making plays. I have no other say about what happens.”

Baker is young and firey. He’ll learn to slow his roll. 

You don’t ever want to throw a teammate under the bus.
