CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is officially a taken man.
Nearly a year to the day after Mayfield announced his engagement to Emily Wilkinson, the two got married Saturday night in Malibu, California in front of family and friends, including several former and current teammates, and are started out their journey together through life.
Following the honeymoon, Mayfield will return to Cleveland for the start of his second professional training camp, one that opens up with lofty expectations among fans because of the acquisition of Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to go along with running back Nick Chubb and fellow pass catchers Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Mayfield broke the rookie record with his 27th touchdown throw of the season with 3:24 remaining in the fourth quarter of a 26-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in an AFC North Division clash at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on December 30.
After taking over the first-team offense in the second quarter of a Week 3 win over the New York Jets, Mayfield completed 310 of his 486 attempts (63.8 percent) for 3,725 yards and 27 touchdowns against 14 interceptions.
Under the direction of new Browns coach Freddie Kitchens, who was the interim offensive coordinator for the second half of the 2018 season, Mayfield completed 180 of his 263 attempts (68.4 percent) for 2,254 yards and 19 touchdowns against eight interceptions.
Mayfield and Chubb were finalists for the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Award following their emergence as key parts of the Browns’ offense during the 2018 season.
