Baker Mayfield In 'No Rush' To Sign Extension

Jun 16, 2021 5:29 PM

Baker Mayfield is in "no rush" to sign an extension with the Cleveland Browns and is focused on his on-field play.

"Everything happens for a reason and it'll handle itself," said Mayfield, who became eligible for an extension this offseason. "So, just worried about winning."

Mayfield finished the season 10th in QBR, though from Week 7 to Week 15 he ranked third, trailing only league MVP Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. Mayfield ended with 26 touchdowns and only eight interceptions, while completing almost 63% of his passes.

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah: I Never Really Had Any Heart Issues

May 5, 2021 9:01 AM

Cleveland Browns second-round pick Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is disputing the notion that a heart issue popped up in his pre-draft medical reviews.

The Notre Dame product was seen as a potential first-round pick, but fell to the middle of the second round.

"You get news," he told Jim Rome. "You get a lot of news within the draft and the process you're going through. There was something that came up in terms of what guys were saying, but in terms of me, in terms of the personal aspect there were no really heart issues at all. There was nothing that was too ticked off and we went back to Notre Dame and looked at the medical records and everything. I never really had any heart issues or anything going on there. You know, you hear a lot of things, but you've got to get it from the source."
