Paul Finebaum rips ‘punk’ Baker Mayfield: ‘A poor man’s Johnny Manziel’


ESPN faculty soccer analyst Paul Finebaum didn’t maintain again when requested about Baker Mayfield.

In an ESPN Cleveland section on Friday, Finebaum asserted that the Browns mustn’t deliver again Mayfield after a disappointing 2021 marketing campaign and made a less-than-desirable comparability between the 26-year-old and one other former Cleveland quarterback.

“I got into it with him in college,” Finebaum stated of Mayfield. “He got here after me on Twitter. And I believed he was a punk then and nothing has modified. He is a poor man’s Johnny Manziel.

“I think Cleveland ought to get rid of him. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I think the Browns are wasting their time with this guy.”

Mayfield has one other 12 months left on his rookie contract, however there’s a likelihood that the Browns will attempt to commerce him within the offseason.

The QB went off on journalist Mary Kay Cabot this week when she reported rising tensions between the QB and head coach Kevin Stefanski over how the franchise was using Mayfield. Cabot wrote that if Mayfield “doesn’t get assurances that things will change next season,” he’ll “consider asking to be traded.”

Mayfield referred to the article as “clickbait” and accused Cleveland media to be “drama stirring reports with no sources or facts.”

The 26-year-old has been the goal of criticism this season and has not performed as much as expectations. Mayfield fought by a left shoulder damage this season and admitted accidents are starting to take a toll.

“I’m an extremely competitive guy,” Mayfield instructed reporters Monday. “Now it’s time for me to begin what’s in the most effective curiosity of me and my well being.
