Baker Mayfield wants nothing to do with Hue Jackson

"Left Cleveland, goes down to Cincinnati". Mayfield and the former Browns' head coach had a somewhat awkward post-game meeting on the field on Sunday.

Jackson tried to show Baker Mayfield some love in the handshake line after the game, but the rookie quarterback essentially snubbed him.

Mayfield was upset with comments made about him by ESPN's Damien Woody, who said the QB was acting childish and hypocritical for saying Jackson should not have joined the Bengals' staff after he was sacked last month in Cleveland.

After "leading" the Browns to a 3-36-1 record over two-and-a-half seasons in Cleveland, Hue Jackson was relieved of his coaching duties earlier this season. Jackson previously served as Bengals offensive coordinator from 2014-2015.

"Baker Mayfield needs to grow up", Woody said. Mayfield, however, quickly responded to Woody with a comment posted on First Take's Instagram page. "Good try though buddy", Mayfield wrote.

First and foremost, of course, both on and off the field, is Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy victor and No. 1 overall draft pick who helped the Browns (4-6-1) end a 25-game road losing skid that was one shy of the National Football League record. Safety Damarious Randall, after intercepting a pass from Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton in the second quarter, handed the ball to Jackson on the Bengals sideline.
