Baker Mayfield will keep access exclusive to the RV he was ordered to provide for quarterbacks at the Cleveland Browns training camp.
“Privacy in my home, my mobile home,” Mayfield said.
ESPN reported that the RV has been an item of interest — and even intrigue — since word about it broke on the first day of camp Thursday.
In organized team activities, Drew Stanton, the resident veteran, ordered Mayfield to have the RV for camp to provide the quarterbacks a place of respite. Since the RV became public, it has been a much-discussed oddity among the media and the Browns’ quarterbacks.
“It’s just something for us to be able to get away,” Tyrod Taylor said. “Not anything special or anything. Y’all are making it way bigger of a deal than it should be.”
This is not the first time players have used an RV during camp; it’s not even the first time it’s been used by Browns players. In the early 2000s, the offensive line had a similar RV for relaxing during the grind of camp, former operations manager Jad Richa said. Stanton said when he played for the Detroit Lions that the quarterbacks had a similar RV, as Shaun Hill instructed Matthew Stafford to get one.
Stanton’s approach shows that even first overall picks like Stafford and Mayfield have to go through rites of rookie passage.
