Lamar Jackson Stunned By Baker Mayfield’s Comment

Written by Tony Ghaul

Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield have been very close since their days back in college.

Lamar had no idea that Baker felt a way about his mother. Mayfield told a story about an encounter with her that left him intimidated.

“She told me stories, for me to get my ass down to Florida and work out with him and I politely declined after a few beverages at the Heisman ceremony,” Mayfield said. “She’s intimidating. There’s a reason why he’s so tough.”

Jackson was extremely shocked about Mayfield’s story.

Mayfield and Jackson competed against each other for four years in the AFC North, when Baker was with the Cleveland Browns. They will have a chance to catch up and speak about this story when they face one another this Sunday in Baltimore.

It will be Mayfield’s first start since a Week 5 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in which he was replaced by Walker because of a high ankle sprain. He was the backup the past four games despite being healthy enough to play.
