Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield isn't done taking shots at his former head coach, Hue Jackson.

Mayfield and Jackson have shared a couple of notable moments over the past couple of months, with the quarterback clearly upset at his former coach taking a job with his rival, the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Browns' quarterback brushed off a hug attempt from Jackson after the first Browns-Bengals game and stared him down after a play during the second contest.

Mayfiield said after that second game, "I don’t know what you’re talking about," when asked about an incident with Jackson. Still, it's not difficult to realize that there's clearly some bad blood there. Today, Mayfield took another shot at his former head coach. This one comes playfully during a segment on FOX's NFL pregame show. "Yeah, anything is better than Hue... I mean you," Mayfield joked to the segment's host, Cooper Manning. Check it out:

That was playful, of course, and FOX's producers were probably behind the line, but still, the Mayfield-Jackson feud is going to live on.

Hopefully we end up getting more of the rivalry between the Browns' quarterback and their former head coach in 2019.

Jackson is currently without an NFL job, but he's interviewed for some offensive coordinator gigs.
