"Some people overthink it", Mayfield told GQ.

We have a name for guys like that in Cleveland: One of us.

"I wish we did win more games, and I played a big part in that".

Mayfield was the No 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft and went 6-7 as a starter as a rookie with the Cleveland Browns.

The former Heisman Trophy victor is also quoted as saying, apparently during the same conversation, "Either you have a history of winning and being that guy for your team or you don't".

A few surprises include American Idol season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina , former Laker Lamar Odom , and model Christie Brinkley . Host Tom Bergeron confirmed that this year we won't be finding out who will be paired with whom until premiere night.

The Giants players were asked about Mayfield's quote on Jones following practice and tight end Evan Engram did not mince words.

Mayfield said the two quarterbacks texted and that Jones took the conversation well. I think Sean McVay would say "Zip it up, you haven't done ANYTHING". "They forget you've gotta win", Mayfield said in the article.

"It's kind of dumb", Engram said, per Matt Lombardo of nj.com. "That's everything Daniel's been doing". "I'll let him think that". I reached out to Daniel because all of that blew way out of hand and I wanted him to know how I felt. "That's one thing that, I don't care about a lot of opinions if you like me or not, but that looked like my character was way out of line, so that's the only reason I addressed it", Mayfield said. Then was talking about the flaws in evaluating QB's. Where I brought up winning is important. I've heard nothing but great things from Saquon (Barkley) and Sterling Shepard, guys who have nothing but respect for him, and I respect their opinions. Mayfield said that the "higher-ups" at OU asking him to apologize for it was "just jaw-dropping" to him.

If you're wondering, the Browns do NOT play the Giants during the regular season this year. He knows who he is, he knows how hard he works, he knows where he came from.
