Mayfield said one of the highlights of last season was defeating the Bengals after Jackson was hired as a special assistant.

1 is not amused by Baker Mayfield.

Baker Mayfield is one of the most exciting young players in the National Football League and in just his rookie year, he was able to make the Cleveland Browns a playoff contender, against all odds.

The feud, which has appeared rather one-sided at Jackson's expense, started previous year with Mayfield calling Jackson "fake" days after Jackson was sacked by the Browns and signed onto to division rival Cincinnati shortly thereafter.

Mayfield said it bothers him when people spread misinformation about Beckham, taking a swipe at Giants fans in the process.

In his recent interview with ESPN, he made it clear that he still stands by his comments against Jackson.

One of the things Mayfield discussed is his new teammate, Odell Beckham Jr., and the spread of misinformation about the receiver, who was traded to the Browns earlier this year.

Mayfield said Browns fans will be more welcoming to Beckham - who is largely seen as a final piece for Cleveland to win the division and make a run in the playoffs.

Check out the audio below as Jackson tells Colin Cowherd that Mayfield's constant gripes at him do not bother him personally, and says he understands certain competitors fire themselves up in different ways, adding that it seemed to work in Mayfield's case.

Mayfield told Kimes that he no longer keeps track of all the slights reporters and others write or say about him like he once did, saying at some point he has to find his own motivation.

"I had never gone through a rookie season before, but I'm pretty sure that's not exactly how it's supposed to go", Mayfield said.
