Baker Mayfield

Baker Regan Mayfield is an American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL). Born on April 14, 1955, the quarterback began his college football career with the Texas Tech Red Raiders as a walk-on player.

Following alleged scholarship difficulties and a lack of contact with coaches, Mayfield transferred from Texas Tech to play for the Oklahoma Sooners. Mayfield then won the starting quarterback role in 2015 despite sitting out the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer restrictions. After impressive displays, his first big break arrived. The quarterback was then picked first by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL draft and the rest as they say is history.
