Today Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield turns 24 years old, a birthday that for Browns fans who have been waiting for a franchise quarterback for a long time is more than worth celebrating.
The first overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft used his rookie year to prove his detractors wrong, set a rookie record for touchdown passes, and become the new ‘King of Cleveland’ while leading the Browns to their best record since 2007 when they went 10-6.
There’s been nothing but positive vibes this offseason, as the team has gone out and grabbed star wide out Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Kareem Hunt to help the offense, and many think the Browns are ready for their first ever AFC North Title.
For now, here’s some highlights of Baker from last season to celebrate his birthday, as well as to get you pumped up for his and the teams’ 2019 campaign.
