With Cleveland off to a disappointing 2-6 start in Beckham's first season since the blockbuster trade from NY, there's been talk that the Browns might try to trade OBJ.

The Cleveland Browns have been a massive disappointment this year, and Baker Mayfield's underwhelming play has been a big reason for that.

"I was undefeated, before Sunday, with the handlebar mustache", Mayfield told reporters Wednesday, "so I shaved it off because I didn't deserve it".

The QB was sporting the handlebar look during the game, but he had a more traditional mustache when he was at the podium after the game.

Eight games into his second NFL season, Mayfield has thrown for 1,963 yards, seven touchdowns and a league-worst 12 interceptions while completing just 58.7 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 71.3.

It's been that form of season for Mayfield. Let's hope that signals a change coming to The Land.

"Now we just have to make the plays when they're there", Mayfield said.

This is an overview of the reality of a working relationship between a quarter and a wide receiver. Beckham hasn't had a touchdown catch since Week 2, his only one of the season. "It's Odell Beckham. He's going to have double coverage. That's something that we learned the hard way, but I think as the weeks have gone by, we'll continue to improve on how to get the ball to him".

Mayfield said Wednesday that OBJ's support through a four-game losing streak "means a lot".
