Mayfield Baker goes MIA when it comes to social media – saying Tuesday night that after his turbulent season with the Browns, he is quitting all platforms until further notice.
“Quitting all social media for the foreseeable future,” the Cleveland quarterback said. “I have to do what’s best to focus on me, my family and my loved ones.”
“Appreciate all the support. It’s time to get it right.”
The caller’s move always seemed like a possibility – given that he and his wife have been unhappy with the internet community for most of this season.
Emily Mayfield had to constantly defend her husband on apps… and even said in December that trolls sent her and the QB death threats after the Browns vs. Packers game.
Baker, meanwhile, has constantly slammed media members and others on social media platforms throughout the season … even writing in a tweet during the NFL playoff games last weekend that everything was “toxic.”
Baker had a tough year with the Browns outside of all the internet hate…throwing 13 interceptions and fumbling 6 times, while missing the playoffs.
He did Undergo surgery on his injured shoulder last week… and he hopes that after recovering he can get back to form next season.
And, it’s clear he thinks the rehabilitation process will go much better if he’s off Twitter and IG — at least for now.
