After the Cleveland Browns dismantled the Cincinnati Bengals, the headlines were all about Baker Mayfield and his comments toward his former head coach. With Hue Jackson now on the opposing sidelines, the first-round pick voiced his displeasure with the move.

Even though Mayfield was honest to the media, several people took offense to his critical remarks. In fact, the former Heisman Trophy winner was put on blast by ESPN analyst Damien Woody. 

Mayfield quickly defended himself, but Woody continues to spark this feud between himself and the Browns quarterback.

Woody left another message for Mayfield, as he lectured him on Twitter.

"To Baker and all his fanboys out there, listen up. I'm going to make this real quick and real simple for all of you. Hue Jackson was fired. Get it, unemployed, fired, no job. If that man wanted to go work for the Cincinnati Bengals, who the hell are you to try to dictate where that man should work? Y'all won the game yesterday. You won the game. So why are you concerned where Hue Jackson is working at? That's why I said grow up" Woody said.

Despite all the negative takes toward the Mayfield, it's clear that Jackson held him back on the field. Since he was fired, the rookie has nine touchdowns and just one interception.

It'll be interesting to see if Mayfield replies to Woody on Twitter.

Stay tuned.
