Baker Mayfield on Josh Gordon: I’ve never seen anybody like him
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield played with some good players at Oklahoma, but no one like Josh Gordon.
Mayfield told Andrew Gribble of the Browns’ website that throwing to Gordon during Organized Team Activities has been a unique experience.
I’ve never seen anybody like him, Mayfield said.
James has been to the White House for three formal occasions, when President Barack Obama honored his championship teams in 2012, 2013 and 2016. But it was the nonofficial times when James visited that were the most fun for him.
In 2009, James was in nearby Silver Spring, Maryland, for the premiere of a documentary he produced about his high school years, More Than A Game. He made a surprise visit to the White House, despite not being on Obama’s official schedule for the day. James and friends Rich Paul, Maverick Carter and Randy Mims got a tour of the West Wing and met with Obama in the Oval Office. Obama even made visiting Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi wait a few minutes for a scheduled meeting.
The new league will not accept players straight out of high school.
Ebersol explained that they’ve yet to decide whether a rule similar to the NFL’s standard (three years after graduation of the player’s high school class) or an age minimum will apply. Regardless, high school players need not apply to the AAF as an alternative to college football.
There’s plenty more from Ebersol regarding a league that will launch a week after Super Bowl LIII in eight cities, including Orlando, Atlanta, Memphis, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Diego, Birmingham, and one city still to be named.
With the NFL Draft set for Thursday, there’s still much anticipation surrounding the Cleveland Browns’ first and fourth overall picks. For weeks now, many have touted USC quarterback Sam Darnold as the first overall pick and the QB of the future for the Browns. Perhaps the only people not sold on the idea are those in the Cleveland Browns’ front office. This would be an unexpected but team-changing decision for Cleveland.
