Leading man: QB Baker Mayfield brings hope, hype to Browns

FOX News

FILE - In this Aug. 8, 2019, file photo, Cleveland Browns' Baker Mayfield, left, smiles as he talks with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. during the second half of an NFL preseason football game against the Washington Redskins in Cleveland. Mayfield isn't concerned about the huge expectations being placed on the Browns, who went 7-8-1 during his rookie season but upgraded their roster and should compete for their first playoff spot since 2002. The service elevator door slides open and Baker Mayfield politely waits for his wife, Emily, to exit and then follows her down a hallway into the downtown hotel's restaurant. Before beginning a photo shoot for a recently signed endorsement deal, the Browns' swaggering, second-year quarterback looks out the giant floor-to-ceiling windows 32 stories above Cleveland. On this clear August afternoon, sailboats slice across Lake Erie's blue-green waters just beyond the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, while sun bathers dot the grassy mall where LeBron James and the Cavaliers paraded following their NBA championship three years ago.
