Cleveland Browns News: Baker Mayfield pokes fun at Cowherd
By Randy Gurzi
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including quarterback Baker Mayfield having some fun with Colin Cowherd’s criticism
Colin Cowherd cannot stand that Baker Mayfield went No. 1 overall, probably because he was wrong in saying he wouldn’t. Now he jumped all over a chance to poke at the Cleveland Browns quarterback over a report from minicamp of all places.
After Cowherd took to Twitter to say — again — that Mayfield shouldn’t have been the pick, the quarterback made sure to remind him it did happen on his own account.
It’s just one of the things that make Mayfield fun to have as the future of the franchise. While he’s insanely competitive, he’s also willing to have fun and not take the things that don’t matter to seriously.

Josh Gordon: Having full offseason program with Cleveland Browns comes with ‘huge upside’ – Matthew Florjancic, WKYC.com
"Hope springs eternal, especially when it comes to Cleveland sports.It has been a long time since wide receiver Josh Gordon participated in the offseason program, but after years of being suspended by the National Football League because of failed drug and alcohol tests, the veteran pass catcher is making the most of his opportunity with the team."
The full off season of work from Gordon is going to be huge entering this season. He’s missed a lot of time, but looked good when he returned in 2017. He should be even better in 2018.
Baker Mayfield claps back at Colin Cowherd — Steven Taranto, 247 Sports
"On Tuesday, Cowherd seized upon observations made by Dan Labbe of cleveland.com, who stated that his opinion was that Mayfield was “not ready” to compete with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns’ starting quarterback job (The original tweet, shared by Evan Silva, has since been deleted). Cowherd used the observation to suggest that Mayfield was not worthy of the No. 1-overall pick, stating that “Marginal size and athleticism isn’t a NUMBER ONE pick. In any draft. In any sport”."

Cowherd is like a lot of pundits who want to be right. He said all along Mayfield wouldn’t be No. 1 and so any chance he has to rip him and prove the pick was wrong, he will take. Mayfield takes it in stride and laughs it off. Got to love that.
