The Cleveland Browns held their rookie minicamp this weekend.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Baker Mayfield intends to conquer, not divide. "We can keep writing this narrative, Tyrod Taylor's the starting quarterback of this football team, and that won't change".

He won't step on any toes. However, since the selection of Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, there has been the continued dialogue about there being a competition for the starting spot.

"He said the same things about when you get (to the NFL), go to work". "I want some of that to rub off on (Mayfield) so he can see firsthand what it means to play quarterback in the National Football League". Who in the world believes that? His name may infuriate many Browns fans, considering he performed terribly in the only season he played for the franchise before being traded to the Green Bay Packers. At the top of his list: earning the trust of his teammates.

"I'm going to come in with the mindset to compete but also the hunger learn (behind Taylor)", Mayfield said.

"It's earning the respect of the veterans in the locker room", he said. You can't talk about it and earn their respect.


"It's a mentality that you are not going to take "no" for an answer". You have to put the time in. When you get used to somebody new, we've got to make sure we're not having to worry about that.

Mayfield just happened to be that choice for the Browns that will continue to push this conversation around him throughout the offseason because it is an imminent situation that will arise at some point. Mayfield has been impressed with Taylor's commitment and openness. Mayfield said. "They brought both him and me in because we're both team-oriented guys". "I'm very excited about him". Doesn't make a ton of sense to me.

In the meantime, he's learning about Cleveland while Cleveland learns about him.

In recent years, it's becoming the norm for highly drafted quarterbacks to start their careers on the bench.

Success wouldn't make Mayfield the first anti-measureable to debunk conventional wisdom that franchise QBs must be built like an Adonis and carry themselves with the stoicism of an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent. "So right now we're trying to get back to that".
