Why Baker Mayfield scrambled to 'reach out' to Daniel Jones

Why Baker Mayfield scrambled to 'reach out' to Daniel Jones

Cowherd said to remember this attack was completely unprovoked, as Mayfield was reportedly watching a television in the background of the set with ESPN's Sportscenter airing a segment on the Giants selecting Jones with the no. 6 pick, and brought Jones' name up in the interview.

During the interview, a segment from SportsCenter was on the television, and Mayfield said, "I can not believe the Giants drafted Daniel Jones".

Mayfield tried to walk back his comments - "I can not believe the Giants took Daniel Jones".

"I can not believe the Giants took Daniel Jones", Mayfield said when a Sportscenter segment about the Giants aired during one of his interviews with the magazine. He was also quoted as saying that it "blows my mind".

"He was cordial, said 'no worries, man.' I know Saquon (Barkley) and Sterling (Shepard) and a couple of guys over (in New York)". "He's a great player, he can throw it, I enjoy watching him play". Then was talking about the flaws in evaluating QBs.

"What people didn't realize is that the conversation entailed of me saying that I was surprised I was drafted No. 1 overall, too", Mayfield told reporters Wednesday. But the item getting the most attention was his swipe at Giants rookie QB Daniel Jones. That's the only reason I addressed it, to me that came back on my character. Within the interview for the piece, Mayfield touched upon the New York Giants' selection of Daniel Jones. You know we can just control what we can control. "I think I've done a pretty good job of that".

"To me, that came back on my character", Mayfield said Wednesday.

The Giants declined to comment when contacted by SI about Beckham's remarks. "The play will be made if we do what we do'".

Browns coach Freddie Kitchens was asked Tuesday if he's anxious about the bull's-eye on his team getting bigger because of the talk coming from his players. "I have never predicted anything, but I know our goal, and that is not going to change". "Hopefully they try to do the same", he said.
