Browns QB Baker Mayfield says he is ‘humbled’ by praise from Saints legend Drew Brees
As he prepares to face the Browns this week, Mayfield said he thinks Mayfield “can be a lot better than me.”
Mayfield said the praise from one of the NFL’s best was appreciated.
“It doesn’t get much higher than that,” Mayfield said. “That’s one of the greatest to play of all time. That’s the guy that I’ve had an unbelievable amount of respect for and looked up to just because of where I’m from first and then size and story as well.”
Mayfield is beginning his pro career as Tyrod Taylor‘s backup, and Browns coach Hue Jackson reiterated Thursday he will not play the No. 1 overall pick until he’s ready.
