The Browns made Baker Mayfield the first overall pick in the NFL draft Rickey Jackson Jersey , but they made Tyrod Taylor their starting quarterback. Mayfield says he can live with that.
Mayfield said at the Browns’ minicamp that he understands that he has a role on the team before he’s the starting quarterback, and that role is to help the team get better from a spot other than No. 1 on the depth chart.
“I wasn’t brought here to just start,” Mayfield said. “I was brought here to help turn things around. Whatever my role is James Harrison Jersey , that’s what I’ll do. Whether that’s to run the scout team or be the best backup possible or playing. I need to be prepared for when I do get my shot to play. Other than that I’ll keep getting better and contribute to this team.”
The Browns have indicated that they want Taylor to start as long as possible, and Mayfield to get some time to develop. That may mean Taylor, who’s going into the last year of his contract Dean Lowry Jersey , starts for all of 2018 before Mayfield gets the job in 2019. Mayfield sounds like he’ll be OK with that.
Aaron Donald remains absent from Rams practices, but the team will be getting another defensive lineman on the field this week.
The Rams announced that defensive tackle Dominique Easley has been activated from the physically unable to perform list. Easley tore his ACL last August, so it has been quite a while since he’s been a full participant in practice for the team.
Easley joined the Rams in 2016 and had 35 tackles Karl Joseph Jersey , 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles while appearing in all 16 games. He re-signed with the team as a free agent this offseason.
He’ll join Ndamukong Suh, Michael Brockers, Ethan Westbrooks Ty Sambrailo Jersey , Tanzel Smart and fourth-round pick John Franklin among the defensive linemen working for the Rams while the Donald wait continues.
