Browns: Time for Baker Mayfield to stick it to Lebron James, Odell Beckham Jr.

The first week of November isn’t going great for Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, as the former No. 1 overall pick finds himself under siege because his No. 1 wideout, Odell Beckham Jr., isn’t producing–and hasn’t produced for the better part of three seasons.

Now it’s clear, he shouldn’t take another snap in a Browns uniform.

Odell Beckham Sr. is re-posting instagram videos of Mayfield missing a wide open Junior. He’s also chiming in in the comments section. I wonder if Baker’s Dad, Mr. Mayfield, will re-post videos of OBJ’s key drops? You know, the ones that come when the team needs a first down.

All the while Lebron James is checking in with #FreeOBJ Tweets. Man, LBJ, butt out. You finally decide to become a Browns fan and now you’re just stirring stuff up?

Maybe Mr. Mayfield can remind James of his tenure of Cavs “GM,” when he forced the Cavs to patch up the roster year after year in order to make a run, all because he would never commit to signing a max contract with the franchise. You’re a great GM, LBJ (insert thumbs down emoji).

Is all of this social media nonsense? OBJ hasn’t actually said anything publicly. LeBron’s been a Browns fan for all of two weeks. He’s probably already jumped ship now that Dallas is good again.

Anyway, if you’re Baker Mayfield, I don’t know how you don’t feel that your back has been pushed against a well.

Baker Mayfield vs adversity

Fortunately, that’s how you want your Baker Mayfield. It’s what kicks him into No. 1 pick material.. It’s the same burning that helped him walk on at Oklahoma–and win the Heisman Trophy. Making Oklahoma’s team is really, really, really had. Walking on and starting at quarterback, winning the sport’s most coveted trophy? We’ve all got better odds of winning the Power Ball.

Now that the trade deadline’s past, the Browns need to do Mayfield a favor and cut Beckham. Let Mayfield enjoy the freedom to explore the field, just as he immediately did after Beckham suffered that season ending knee injury, almost a year ago to the day, in Cincinnati.

With the status quo, the season is unraveling. Free Baker from OBJ and let him go to work. There’s not much more to lose at this point.
