Baker Mayfield, Antonio Brown trade shots on social media

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and unemployed wide receiver Antonio Brown are the latest NFL players to have a social media beef.

It started with Mayfield putting up a post on Instagram that one of his followers felt was too much like the kind of content Brown often posts. Mayfield responded to a comment by taking issue with any suggestion that he’s anything like Brown.

“You’re right,” Mayfield wrote sarcastically. “Let me call out my teammates and throw a fit about my helmet and then go freeze my feet off.”

Brown saw that allusion to him and wasn’t happy about it.

“Sorry ass Chico keep rolling right you ain’t done nothing in this league the internet only place u would ever talk too or about me; you know u get beat quick slice u up some humble pie,” Brown tweeted, addressing Mayfield. “Should of never been drafted before Lamar Jackson what a big scam.”

So if Brown ever does find employment with an NFL team again, we can probably cross the Browns off the list.

  1. I wish Baker Mayfield would focus on football and Antonio Brown would go away. The media tried to pull Daniel Jones into the media warfare but he didn’t bite. He’s focusing on football and it shows.

  2. I’m gonna go freeze my feet off too. Lol. AB must be on social media all day waiting for anyone to reference him. Hopefully he doesn’t try to fight me too for this comment.

  3. It’s almost like he thinks social media allows you to have private conversations that will never see the light of day.

  4. Sport fools and Social Media……unreal, the gift that never stops giving.

    In the old days, beat writers would work non-stop for some of this action – in today’s world, just sit back and take it all in for free.

    Social fools.

  5. I’m now convinced Baker will be a bust. I don’t see him quitting taking the cheese with every criticism, beef, and riff possible online. He just can’t shut up about anything. All his distractions equal lack of focus of what’s really important – playing the Quarterback position well and leading his team. People weren’t wrong….he IS Johnny Manziel II.

  6. Giants fans like me are pretty darn fortunate to have a QB and WRs who act like adults not like 12 year olds.

  7. Good lord, Antonio. Please learn some basic grammar & punctuation. I had to read that 3 times to understand what he’s saying. Twitter is the enemy of coherent thoughts.

  8. So the list of teams shrinks by one more. Since Marvin Lewis is out in Cincy that leaves 1 place: KC. Andy Reid gives people last chances; however, I don’t see Mahomes or the KC owner wanting to deal with this guy.

  9. Gotta say, diva Brown does have a small point… BM being drafted before LJ is a head shaker of sorts. Mayfield needs a few more wins before he can post or say anything… just my opinion.

  10. Baker Mayfield and AB–only one of those guys has a job. After reading his tweets it’s not hard to figure out why.

  11. Baker. Cmon man. Need you. We’re browns fans. Get off social media and get this thing going in the right direction. If not, gonna be way too sensitive as it will only get worse.

  12. I thought this might make me like Mayfield more since Brown is horrible, but he just sounds like classic bro lame. Don’t these people understand that people need to like them to make them employable?

  13. I’m sorry but can someone tell me what AB’s tweet even means?

    Good luck with your Eng 101 class at C Michigan dude. SMH.

  14. It’s amazing to watch someone sabotage their own NFL career by blaming everyone else for their own failures, than watch them burn their bridges to all 32 NFL teams on top of it

  15. Been awhile since someone this talented has crashed and burned so fast….the league and NFLPA need to step in and get AB some help,its only going to get worse…

  16. Baker, please learn to tune out the noise and focus on winning football games. Somethings off this year and it’s time to do some self evaluation.

  17. Do people like Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold, and Daniel Jones have people in their lives constantly warning them about Social Media idiocy or are they just smart enough to avoid it? Whichever it is, the Brownies need do the same for Baker.

  18. You old heads don’t understand. Social Media isn’t a distraction for people of a certain age. They’ve grown up with it and its as part of their day to day as eating breakfast. Sure, you can be addicted like AB but for most it’s a quick 10 minute of scrolling and trolling for fun.

  19. One of the reasons why I miss 70s football. If these two blowhards played in that era their mouths would have been shut a long time ago. Why is this even newsworthy?

  20. Case in point for why Baker Mayfield will never be an elite NFL quarterback. Can’t focus on his job and is more worried about his social media brand. It’s turning out that he’s one of those rookie QBs who start hot, but once defenses have enough video of him they easily figure him out. We’ll see further proof tomorrow, when he goes against one of the top defenses in the league, and is matched against a guy drafted at the end of the first round who has been working hard since day one to improve his game.

  21. In all of Brown’s grammatical butchery the most annoying to me is the use of “of” instead of “have.”

  22. Though agreeing with AB may be the first sign someone needs help, I have to back the dude up. Nobody talks more, is acknowledged more, and has done less that Baker Mayfield. If he would play as well as he talks, the Brows would have no issues, as of now he is just another young QB trying to get his legs underneath him. This demonstrates one of the big issues in the NFL, the hype precedes accomplishment, and too many people view the hype as truth. AB is a wack job AND he has accomplished 1000X’s more than Baker Mayfield has. Baker Mayfield should put his attention on NOT BEING RYAN LEAF.

  23. Baker threw Duke Johnson under the bus..plus he threw danial Jones under the bus. AB is right…

  24. I will be absolutely amazed if Mayfield can come close to his potential on the football field when random fans on twitter can bait him so easily. John Randle would have had a field day with this kid, even before a snap was played. If you are too young to know what I’m talking about, look him up.

  25. If Baker and the Browns win Sunday, the Browns will be in first place in the AFC North and the narrative about him will 180. Baltimore is beatable too. This is gonna be interesting

  26. If our forefathers and foremothers could see how our people waste countless hours of their limited time on earth, just burning /wasting their time in social media….what kind of accounting will be given, how productive? We are definitely at the top of the curve before downward spiral. Useless.

  27. Sounds like Baker needs to put down the internet and pick up a play book. Or spend that time studying film, working with his O-Line or anything productive.

  28. For those whose can’t seem to figure out what Brown was saying.

    He was calling Mayfield a little boy rather than a man, an incompetent QB who can’t stay in the pocket and thus limits his team to playing on only half the field making it easier for opponents to defend against them. He goes on to say that Baker can only shoot his mouth off on the internet vis-a-vis Brown because if you compare what they have done in the NFL Baker’s accomplishments are nothing when compared to Brown’s. He also stated that Baker was “overdrafted” because Lamar is a much better QB.

    Understanding only one dialect of English is nothing to crow about, and yet there seem to be many here who are proud of their ignorance and expect others to cater to it.

  29. At this point we all know AB is a little crazy but why is BM taking the bait? He seems over sensitive and thin skinned. This is not a good sign for the quarterback position. Ignore the noise and get to work!

  30. Sober Johnny Manzell vs the -30 million dollar man… both won’t be in league..oh wait ..I’ll give Manzell another few years before the CFL…

  31. If you’re a franchise QB you should hand over all your social media accounts to professionals. If you’re struggling to find a team and have a bad rep you should stay far away from social media. How hard can it be to figure this stuff out? They are both fools.

  32. “You’re right,” Mayfield wrote sarcastically. “Let me call out my teammates and throw a fit about my helmet and then go freeze my feet off.”

    LOL

  33. Once more Brown with the chiko racial slur just as cracker in Oakland with no repercussion from media or NFL. This guy has proven to be a cancer on a league that is experiencing less and less fans in the stadiums.

  34. Wow, your career is not heading in the right direction if Rex Ryan and Antonio Brown both think you’re hot garbage.
    Put down the phone, pick up the playbook.

  35. Some of these players seem to have never progressed beyond the teenage girl portion of their mental development

  36. A pissing contest in which both are accurate as can be. Especially Brown, when he references Mayfield rolling right, but that is honestly a bigger slam at the Cleveland coach who continues to roll Mayfield right on every important play.

  37. You’re both idiots, but Antonio my brother, I’m sure you have an entourage. There must be one person among your boys who can tweet in English for you.

  38. Love all the folks claiming society is doomed because 2 tools beef on social media. If social media didn’t exist, these 2 would find another way to be awful.

    Do you think Brown is actually illiterate or just playing the part?

    ——————

    Not to worry He’s taking online English classes at CMU

  40. If Baker and the Browns win Sunday, the Browns will be in first place in the AFC North and the narrative about him will 180. Baltimore is beatable too. This is gonna be interesting

    You are going to get destroyed in a manner that is nearly unimaginable. They are going to go through your team like they didn’t even take the field. Come back after and tell me what you think then.

  41. How does any intelligent person with a bunch of kids to support loose 40 million dollars that was there if he would just shut up and behave like a pro??? Players like Antonio Brown just do not have the brains or the upbringing to make logical simple decisions. Baker should shut up and get off social media with a 1-2 record???

  42. Mayfield study your upcoming opponents defense , focus on football and not a player no longer in the league and maybe you will someday join the Carson Wentz of the NFL, fly eagles fly !!!

  43. Mayfield should just shut up. He’s proof positive the human brain isn’t fully developed until the late twenties.

  44. Geez, someone put duct tape on Antonio’s mouth already. NOBODY CARES Antonio – your 15 minutes are up. If you thought folks in the White House had a monopoly on being incoherent, all you need to do is read one of Antonio’s endless amount of foolish tweets.

    For these two, ten minutes is probably an understatement. Even if it were not that is still ten minutes that they could be devoting to improving their craft or improving themselves.

  46. This could get very interesting. Hope Lamar Jackson plays well and the Ravens win big then someone should ask Mayfield about AB’s comments. Taking shots at AB is no win situation for any active player.

  47. Brown has basically thrown away a hall of fame career. By this time next year its very possible he will still be unemployed. His social media is anything but social. Im not sure which is sadder. The fact that 2 grown men are “twitter beefin”… The fact they both write like teenage girls… Or the fact that grown men “follow” them.
    Has anything important ever actually happened on twitter?

  48. This is baker… cool. I’ll take josh Allen and his Brady-esq respect for the game , position he is in and players. Like Daniel Jones, Allen won’t take the bait on this crap. Manning and Brady didn’t either.
    Wanting to be great and thinking you’re already great are the difference between good players and bums.

    And am I the only one who would
    Root for AB against mayfield?

  49. Mayfield study your upcoming opponents defense , focus on football and not a player no longer in the league and maybe you will someday join the Carson Wentz of the NFL, fly eagles fly !!!

    You mean watch someone else win the super bowl? Cause that’s what Carson he done

  50. Is it just me being an old guy, or does anyone else ever understand what the hell Antonio Brown is saying?

  51. Lmao at all the clowns saying Mayfield should shut up and stay off social media, yet here they are on social media and can’t shut up. Lol.what a bunch of hypocrites.

  52. 3 years from now AB is still a #1 WR in the NFL, and Mayfield will be holding a clipboard.

    AB has problems, no doubt. Until proven otherwise, it’s all ‘he said, she said’.

    Mayfield is proving to be hype disguised as a leader by a city desperately seeking anyone to save their franchise.

  53. Sometimes, just sometimes, everybody’s in the wrong and they all suck. This is one of those times. I do not root for injuries but something tells me Baker is gonna end up on a cart some day.

  54. Baker needs to win or at least play decent before he has anything to say. He’s done nothing at all so far. Shut up and play. He won’t win the
    ‘Twitter’ war with Antonio😎😎

  55. Baker, you can’t argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

  56. When a person embarrasses himself like AB has done. It’s only a natural reaction to try to do the same to others. AB lost 50+ million to play a game he loved and was great at it. Now he’s nothing. Gotta sting #KarmaISreal

    It will take him a year but he’ll get the 9 mill guaranteed from the Pats but yea .. everything else is gone.

  58. Antonio Brown is the reason why racism will continue, and continue to be gloried in this nation ruled by a lightwarden until at least the end of next year. Gives black people a bad name. His Twitter check mark must be removed, and his account shut down. Only then with this light-infested nation start to heal. #FFXIV

  59. Chic FilA Brown just needs to find someplace he can work on Sundays. And the NFL ain’t it.. #walmartgreeter. #dingfriesaredoneAB #hishelmentgetsmoreaction. #ABwontCDfieldnomore #NFLrulesABdrools

  60. Since Brown got big buck$ for his days in the NFL, whens does he buy a “EDJAMACATION” (EDUCATION) and stop text like a uneducated idiot ? This is a “Role model” for kids ?????! Are you kidding ?! NOT !!! 👎 👎 👎 👎 Join the T.O / Ochocinco/ Dez Bryant club loser !!!

  61. Superman hero’s would NEVER act like Antonio Brown … But he is a legend in his own mind … Now … YAY !

  62. Antonio Brown really should just shut up. The more he posts, the more he sounds like an illiterate douche. Glad his pompous @55 is unemployed right now. He may have more money, right now, but anyone with a degree, a job, and an ability to form a full sentence without needing spell check, is doing better off….
