Last weekend, Baker Mayfield made a triumphant return to Oklahoma where he was being honored.

The Sooners created a statue of Baker that will go into the school's Heisman Park. While the statue may not have looked exactly like him, it was still an incredible moment for the former college football star quarterback.

After taking the week to reflect on the moment, his wife, Emily, had a message for him.

"Last weekend was a special one. Of course it’s incredible to watch a Heisman statue go up, immortalizing my husband and the legacy he left at OU," she said in a post on Instagram.

"But what gave me the most joy was seeing Baker on his old stomping grounds, surrounded by a fan base that absolutely adores him. For someone who gives everything to this game, it sure was fun to celebrate you and your OU accomplishments! We love you #6!"

Emily's message for Baker may have been a message to the Cleveland Browns as well. The organization and fanbase turned on him after he led the team out of a dismal decade of football.

A down season in 2021 was all it took for the fans to move on. The Browns also moved on, trading for star quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Where will Mayfield land next?
