"Blows my mind", the Cleveland Browns quarterback told GQ.

Baker Mayfield offered his usual no-holds barred opinion when discussing the Giants drafting of Daniel Jones, telling GQ he "can't believe" NY selected the Duke quarterback sixth overall in April.

"Some people overthink it", Mayfield continued.

"I can not believe the Giants took Daniel Jones", Mayfield said about the Giants' sixth overall selection. What people didn't realize the conversation entailed of me saying that I was surprised I was drafted No. 1 overall, too.

Despite later clarifying his comments and saying he was taken out of context, the damage was done.

Forbes added that Robert Downey getting $20 million upfront and almost 8% of the pool for his role as Iron Man . On top of that, Johnson earns $700,000 per episode of HBO's Ballers and millions more from clothing royalties.

That's it. That's all we know that he said about Jones.

Mayfield, who sat out Saturday's game against the Colts along with numerous offensive starters, said he'd like to play a half against the Bucs, but Kitchens isn't making any promises. "And then me going on a rant after that about QB evaluation and then my frustration from recruiting processes and stuff". Reporters and media will do anything to come up with a click bait story. Mayfield already has begun to prove his own critics wrong by leading the historically lowly Browns to six wins in their final 13 games last season, but his logic suggests Jones might find it a bit more hard to achieve success at the next level. 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. "This Browns team I think is gonna implode this season", he said.

"That interview was done back in April, I think right after the draft", Mayfield said.

Unfortunately, the Giants and Browns won't play this year, unless they meet up in the Super Bowl.

"This wasn't no business move", he told SI. I don't know what a bull's-eye is. "This was personal. They thought they'd send me here to die". "We said that all along, I said I would not comment on what he says about the situation".
