Entering his second year in the NFL, Baker Mayfield has already emerged as one of the most popular players in the NFL. He's even drawing attention from Hollywood.

On Wednesday, the Cleveland Browns quarterback got a workout in with Mark Wahlberg. The superstar actor posted video to his Instagram account.

Obviously as an NFL player, Mayfield made it through fine, but Marky Mark did seem to impress him with the routine. The star of The Departed and Boogie Nights is well known for his workout regimen.

Video from Mark Wahlberg's Instagram, featuring Baker Mayfield:

The actor drew a strong review from the 2017 Heisman winner: "I didn't know what to expect... He knows what he's doing. He does. He's a tough guy. He's a tough guy."

Mayfield played in 14 games for Cleveland last season, starting 13. He threw for 3,725 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.

Given the Browns' historic struggles at the quarterback position, his solid rookie year has given the team significant hope for the first time in a long time.

Throw in some serious offensive firepower with acquisitions like Odell Beckham Jr. this off-season, and the Browns have some serious momentum entering the season. Wahlberg has to hope they don't start to build on it and encroach on his Patriots' territory.
