Baker Mayfield not happy Hue Jackson took position with Bengals
There is no love lost between Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and his former head coach.
Mayfield admitted after Sunday’s 35-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals that he wasn’t particularly thrilled with Hue Jackson ending up on the Cincinnati Bengals’ staff so soon after being fired by the Browns, and made no secret of it in his postgame press conference.

“Left Cleveland, goes down to Cincinnati. I don’t know,” Mayfield said. “Somebody that was in our locker room asking for us to play for him, and then goes to a different team we play twice a year. Everybody can have their spin on it, but that’s how I feel.”
Mayfield was clearly unhappy with Jackson and his career move, and that was clearly implied in their postgame interaction. In fairness to Jackson, he was fired and was free to work wherever he wanted after that, but given the rivalry, you can see why Mayfield would have issues.
