Words by Joe Burrow
This Thursday, Burrow mentioned Mayfield’s situation and said the quarterback should find a new opportunity with his talent on another NFL team.
“This is a difficult situation. He has been in pain for the past year. Every time we play with him, he messes around,” Burrow said on the Full Send podcast. “The first time we played him – Thursday night in my rookie week 2 – we lost 34-30. The next time we played with them, I quit 400 yards. He’s going 25-of-28 with five touchdowns. He drove two minutes, touchdown, they won the game.”
