Baker Mayfield blasts ‘clown’ Colin Cowherd in defense of Odell Beckham
The drama between Baker Mayfield and Colin Cowherd has flared up once again, with Odell Beckham Jr in the middle of things.
Things started on Thursday when Cowherd mocked Beckham in a segment about the receiver’s top 10 moments. Most of the “moments” picked on Beckham for some of his notorious off-field issues, such as the infamous party boat and the hotel room photo.

Beckham got involved by pointing out the hypocrisy of Cowherd, who had sent him a text message congratulating him on his trade to Cleveland and said he was rooting for him.
Mayfield, who has a deep history with Cowherd, decided to get involved and called the FS1 host a “clown.”
“Once again, you’re a clown…. now I know you’re just trying to get me fired up. “Most memorable moments”… he’s 26 and his greatest moments are ahead of him. You forget the kids and people he inspires. That goes much further than football…You’re over double his age and you can’t even realize that it’s much bigger than just the game. Wisdom didn’t come with age for you did it?” Mayfield wrote on Twitter.

Mayfield is being a good teammate by showing he has Beckham’s back, but the two of them responding to Cowherd will only encourage the host because he is getting his desired reaction.
