Many fans are drawn to Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield for his fiery play and his penchant for having fun off the field.
He can come off as a bit brash to some, and not everyone is a fan.
Count former Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster among the people in that came, evidently.
Foster, a four-time Pro Bowler and 2010 First Team All-Pro for the Houston Texans, responded to a video of Mayfield dancing on Twitter.
He doesn’t seem entertained by Mayfield’s effervescent personality.

Baker Mayfield really didn’t appreciate Arian Foster’s tweet, and returned with some serious fire.
He told Foster, who has pursued a rap and podcasting career since retiring, that he previously respected him before the tweet.
Respected you before this… I get it dog, you’re too cool to show any personality. Everybody’s different, though. No need to speak on it.

Mayfield may have escalated things a bit, but it isn’t a major surprise that he has a chip on his shoulder. It has generally served him well, as he went from walk-on at Texas Tech, to starter as a freshman, to eventual Heisman winner at Oklahoma, and a year ago, the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.
Now, Mayfield appears to be the real deal at the NFL level, putting together the most promising year at quarterback that a Brown has had in recent memory.
That comes with some bristly moments and clashes, but Browns fans have embraced him full-stop.
