Baker Mayfield has become the talk of the NFL this week due to his comments on Daniel Jones. In an interview with GQ, the former No. 1 pick spoke about the Giants quarterback.

We've seen over the course of his career that Mayfield isn't afraid to make bold statements. Whether it was during his time at Oklahoma or his rookie season in Cleveland, he has made more than few headlines for his comments.

The latest situation involving Mayfield is unique because it involves a player that he doesn't have any correlation to. He didn't play against or alongside Jones in his career.

As you'd expect, the media in New York asked Jones about Mayfield's comments.

Instead of firing back at Mayfield, the No. 6 overall pick elected to take the high road.

"I think he's a great player," Jones said about Mayfield. "He can throw it and I enjoy watching him play."

It's a classy response from Jones, who appears to be taking notes from Eli Manning. The two-time champion is known for constantly taking the high road in any controversial situation.

With so many storylines to follow this upcoming season, fans will keep a close eye on Mayfield and Jones.

Mayfield has to meet high expectations in Cleveland, meanwhile Jones is being deemed as the successor to Manning.
