Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley had a message for Baker Mayfield following the Cleveland Browns’ big win on Saturday night.
The Browns, who remain in NFL Playoffs contention, took down the Denver Broncos on the road to improve to 6-7-1 on the season.
FOX NFL analyst Troy Aikman was impressed.
“Looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot of Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns in the years to come,” he tweeted.

Will we be seeing Baker with Lincoln in the years to come? The Oklahoma coach is being mentioned as a candidate for the Browns’ head coaching job.
Mayfield hasn’t commented on the idea of Riley leaving for the Browns, but he does think his college coach is ready for the NFL.
“Lincoln’s been ready,” Mayfield said earlier this month, per Cleveland’s 92.3 The Fan. “The respect level he’s had from all of his players. He’s ready, but that’s his decision.”
