Baker Mayfield on rooming with Nick Chubb during Browns' rookie minicamp

Cleveland Browns were set on Baker Mayfield long before draft, says Peter King

Browns first-round CB Denzel Ward is sidelined at minicamp with a hip flexor injury.

Try telling a two-time college walk-on who became the Heisman Trophy victor and No. 1 overall pick that he's going to be the backup this year behind Tyrod Taylor.Then remind everyone that Taylor is definitely the starter and "that's not going to change" like Jackson did on Friday after the first day of rookie minicamp.It's the stuff that Baker Mayfield's life has been made of: tell him he's too short, his hands are too small, he's not good enough and all the rest, and you will only serve to throw a torch on the dry brush."I'm always competitive", Mayfield said Saturday before the second of three rookie minicamp practices.

"It taught me patience", Mayfield said. It will take time for them to develop and build a team that is desperate to be a contender after many years of poor play and lack of leadership.

"If you're playing the Bengals and Steelers for one-quarter of your schedule every year, you have to be concerned with those two receivers". This is a franchise that traditionally is great. You want to be that person.

"I think they're in a good spot".

As Trade Talks With China Open, President Trump Praises President Xi
The Chinese are expected to propose easing of tariffs on imported goods such as cars and offer to negotiate a U.S. But the divergent USA trade delegation group is likely to have differing views on the merits of such an offer.

Assistant GM Eliot Wolf preached that same kind of effect that Mayfield has on his teammates, noting a game against Texas last season as a prime example.

"It's been so far so good, so I've definitely enjoyed it, felt welcomed and this feels like home already, " he said.

Mayfield joins a Browns team that went 0-16 a year ago, so there's literally nowhere to go but up.

Dorsey noted that they tried to keep things simple whilst studying his tape, and came to the simple conclusion that his surgical dismantling of college defenses was too hard to ignore. They have been winning in the past. "So right now we're trying to get back to that". The more he delved into Mayfield though, the more he liked him and it became apparent that the Oklahoma standout had that one fabled intangible quality that all the great ones have; the "it' factor". "It's a blank slate, and right now I'm not going to get complacent". The guys who have been doing it for a while, I have to earn their respect. I caught up with Randy Gurzi, editor of the Dawg Pound Daily (Cleveland Browns FanSided), and he gave me some insight on the Browns draft. I'm going to work here for the Browns.
