'It's time to work' – Baker Mayfield

Expect to hear less of Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield this season.

"It's just time to work,” Mayfield said, in his first media availability on Wednesday.

“I think everybody who’s been interviewed on our team has hit the nail on the head over and over about ‘it’s time to work. It is time to do our thing, instead of talking about it,’” Mayfield said during a video conference, via Cleveland.com.

“This is the first media thing I’ve done just because there’s no need to be talking about it. It’s just time to go do it. Right now, it’s kind of moving in silence, which is fine with me.”

It’s a different approach for the vocal  quarterback, as he has reportedly turned down multiple interview requests, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter.

Mayfield is entering his third season with fourth different coach – Kevin Stefanski takes the reigns after the Browns posted a disappointing 6-10 last season.

The 25-year-old is reverting back to learning the fundamentals of football in preparation for the upcoming season, while the nation combats the COVID-19 virus.

“There’s been a lot of learning throughout this process,’’ he said, via cleveland.com.

“During all this, it’s kind of made everybody go back to the just shear fundamentals. You can’t do so many complex drills and all the stuff you might and everybody might not have the same equipment, but we can teach the very base fundamentals of what this new coaching staff wants to do and go from there.”

I think that has been the best thing is essentially just getting back to the basics.”

Mayfield, Browns open regular season against Baltimore Ravens, September 13.
