CLEVELAND — Baker Mayfield is back at it again.
If you were listening to the Cleveland Browns quarterback's postgame press conference following his team's win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday and thought that some comments seemed out of place, you weren't alone -- or mistaken. Just as he did at multiple points throughout the 2020 season, Mayfield used Sunday's postgame press conference to sneak in some pop culture references, this time, repeatedly naming albums from the rapper, Kanye West.
"It felt good. Obviously, losing a guy like Jarvis [Landry], one of our key skill players, you have to have people step up," Mayfield said after the Browns' 26-6 Week 3 win. "We were blessed to have the Late Registration of Odell [Beckham Jr.] coming in and play for us."
Mayfield went on to sneak in references to other albums by West including "The College Dropout," "Graduation" and "The Life of Pablo."
Last season, Mayfield made headlines for his habit of making pop culture references in the postgame press conferences following Browns wins. Among the references made by the No. 1 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft last year were nods to Snoop Dogg, Lil' Wayne, "Talladega Nights," "Parks & Rec" and "The Office."
Speaking to ESPN's Keyshawn Johnson, Mayfield revealed the story behind his penchant for pop culture references.
"There's a thing going on in the QB room that I have to slide in a certain quote or there's a fine," Mayfield revealed ahead of a Monday Night Football matchup vs. the Ravens.
