Baker Mayfield https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Antonio-Callaway-Jersey
, the top pick in the 2018 NFL draft, had just made his debut and led the Cleveland Browns to a 21-17 come-from-behind win over the New York Jets — the franchise鈥檚 first victory in 635 days.But he had one thing in mind when he ended his postgame press conference: 鈥淐hristian Yelich for National League MVP.鈥漌ell played, Baker. Well played.The two athletes became friends in the offseason while working out in the same facility in California, evident by Mayfield鈥檚 tweet in early February, just a few weeks after Yelich was traded to the Brewers.Yelich鈥檚 strong second half of the season has brought him right in the middle of the MVP conversation. The outfielder leads the NL in batting average (.319), on-base plus slugging (.954) and offensive WAR (5.9). He鈥檚 also tied for first in slugging percentage (.569), ranks second in runs scored (104) and is in the league鈥檚 top 10 in on-base percentage (.385), hits (173), home runs (31) and RBI (93).While Yelich is one of a few candidates being mentioned for the NL MVP, perhaps Mayfield’s pronouncement will help his cause. OK, maybe not Britton Colquitt Jersey
, but at the very least, Yelich approves of Mayfield’s fashion choice. It looks like Odell Beckham Jr. is going to show up for Browns events early, and not so often.According to Mary Kay Cabot of the , Beckham’s only day of attendance for the voluntary OTAs was last week, as he’s been at that one day of the five held so far. But he’s one ahead of running back Duke Johnson, who hasn’t shown for any of them after requesting a trade. Wednesday marked the halfway point, with five of the 10 sessions in the books.Beckham also came for the first day of the voluntary offseason program and then returned to Los Angeles, where he lives in the offseason.The Browns also practiced without defensive ends Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon, and wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway Wednesday. They’ve been around most of the time, and Landry is nursing a minor injury.The Browns have tried to keep things positive about Beckham’s attendance, with coach Freddie Kitchens saying it was important for Beckham to be mentally ready for the season Tyrod Taylor Jersey
, and quarterback Baker Mayfield insisting Beckham would be ready when it matters in the fall.“I have never disputed the fact that it is not important for him to be here, but it is also also important for him to be mentally ready to be here,’’ Kitchens said. “I’m not giving him an out by any stretch of imagination, and nobody here knows the conversations that Odell and I have. I’m just saying it is better for him to be here when he can present his best self – emotionally, physically, everything.’’The Browns have a mandatory minicamp June 4-6, and they expect everyone on hand then. That includes Johnson, who the team has steadfastly said they’re not trading.
