Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett shows support for teammate Baker Mayfield

'He stuck by us, I'm going to stick by him.'

CLEVELAND — *EDITOR'S NOTE: The above video is from a previous story.

Ever since the Browns' disappointing 2021 season came to a close, countless questions have surrounded the team, specifically at the quarterback position.

Baker Mayfield's injury-plagued and inconsistent campaign has put him on notice, with some wondering if the team could move on from him this spring. There have even been rumors the fourth-year signal-caller has lost some members of the locker room, particularly following the feud with and subsequent releasing of Odell Beckham Jr.

But if some believe the Browns have lost faith in Baker, the club's arguable best player doesn't appear to feel that way.

In a brief interaction with TMZ Sports Friday night, star defensive end Myles Garrett was asked if he still has confidence in Mayfield. His response?

"He's my quarterback," Garrett said. "He's my guy. He stuck by us, I'm going to stick by him."

Myles and Baker will always be intertwined, in a way, having both been selected No. 1 overall in back-to-back drafts in 2017 and '18. But while Garrett has become one of the NFL's best pass rushers and earned a massive extension from the front office, Mayfield has struggled to maintain an elite form, and his headed into the final year of his rookie contract without a new deal.

Of course, Mayfield was at the helm when Cleveland made the playoffs in 2020, and helped the franchise win its first playoff game in 26 years. When TMZ asked Garrett if he still believed Mayfield could lead the group back to the postseason, his answer was... somewhat ambiguous?

"I believe in the Browns," the two-time All-Pro declared.
