Earlier this week, Cleveland reporter Mary Kay Cabot made headlines with a report from Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Cabot published a report suggesting tension is growing between the former No. 1 overall pick and Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski. According to Cabot, Mayfield allegedly thought Stefanski’s play-calling "didn’t always put him in position to succeed or play to his strengths."

Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt also made it abundantly clear Mayfield and Stefanski have open lines of communication.

“No. Absolutely not,” Van Pelt said, regarding the “tension” between the two, via 92.3 The Fan. “I know the line of communication is wide open between those two guys. Kevin’s always been open, communicative with all the players.”

Will Mayfield be back in Cleveland next season?
