Baker Mayfield provided his former Cleveland Browns team with some big-time bulletin board material ahead of this year's Week 1 competition.
When talking about the Carolina Panthers' season-opener against the Browns on September 11,
"I'm going to f-k them," Mayfield said.
All-Pro defensive end Miles Garrett shares his thoughts on this bold statement from his former teammate.
According to Cleveland insider Mary Kay Cabot, Garrett said, "We'll take it and we'll use it, and I'm looking forward to a great matchup."
"I don't think less of him because he's going out there and doing what he did when he was with us.
He's the same guy in person, and we'll probably see a different baker when we hit the ground. Who knows?"
Mayfield and Garrett were teammates at Cleveland for four full seasons.
As such, Garrett knows the quarterback's trash-talking personality all too well.
Garrett took no offense at Mayfield's statement.
"We know they have that type of demeanor and that attitude,
And for better or worse, it works for him," Garrett said.
"And I'm not mad at him using that fire and that chip on his shoulder to help him play to the level that he has.
With an injury to current starter Sam Darnold, Mayfield officially claimed the Panthers' starting job ahead of the 2022 regular season.
The Panthers will welcome the Browns for a Week 1 matchup on September 11.
